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.
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.
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.
