Hey Boston Fans - Schilling Question

Postby Yikes » Sat Apr 03, 2004 4:43 pm

I heard somewhere that Schilling asked the Red Sox not to pitch him against any AL East opponents (i.e. Yankees) this regular season in order to have a "surprise" factor in the playoffs.

Is there any truth to this? If so this is a sizable jump in his value.

Schilling is going to be the starter the first time the Sox play the Yanks in a few weeks....I think you stumbled on a April Fools Joke

I was going over my old draft sheets and wrote this note in next to Schilling's name but then forgot about it.
:-?

I thought I heard it from ESPN back in early March but don't quote me on this.

If this is true you gotta hand it to this guy for doing whatever he can for the sox (e.g. world series incentive laden contract)

That sounds just a tad unrealistic. B-)

It had to have been a ST thing - if he doesn't pitch against anyone in the AL East - like New York, Baltimore, Toronto - Boston might not make the playoffs to surprise someone.
