How would this affect Buchholz? Schilling hasn't pitched all year.... :-?


less chance of buchholz being displaced by the overabundance of SP

there has been talk of Buchholz not making it back up all year because Schilling was going to be taking a spot eventually. Now without Schilling being a definite, Buchholz may get his return chance with Colon being Colon and Masterson being seen as a lesser overall prospect than Buchholz. Dice-K's situation is obviously still unsettled.

It was going to be hard to fit him back in with Schilling hogging a spot. Beckett, Dice-K, Lester, Wakefield, and a choice among Colon (if he returns from injury)/Masterson/Buchholz...I'd tend to like Buchholz's chances there.
When you are a man, sometimes you wear stretchy pants in your room...is for fun.

Yep this makes Buchholz's chances a lot better now.

Really? Two pages of posts and not a single one at least saluting a guy who is probably ending a Hall of Fame career? Even if you think he's a blowhard, Schilling was always a consummate professional and competitor, reportedly doing more prep time than any pitcher I've ever read about.

Give the man his due: Thanks for the memories, 38.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

Red Sox fans should also give their thanks, he helped bring a World Series title to Boston.

@Yoda: Him talking about other sports is bad enough, have you heard what he says about POLITICS? :-D

I'm just glad that I don't have hear about him anymore. :-°

I think Sox fans remember him much more fondly than the rest of us, no offense...

Yeah, he was an amazing pitcher, but that doesn't mean I have to be sad to see him go.

Yep the ole red paint on the sock certainly helped him out.

Yeah, I'll tip my hat but I honestly don't think he'll make the Hall. He's barely got over 200 wins and Bert Blyleven had like 600 K's and didn't get in. What made Schilling kind of special was his postseason play. Record of 10-2 with an ERA of 2.23. ;-D He reminds of Robert Horry of the NBA a bit in that their regular season stats won't get them in the Hall, but they deserve merit because of the post season. Granted Shill was better in the regular season than Robert, but you catch my drift.
