Curt Schilling announced Monday that he's retiring, writing on his blog that "this party has officially ended."
Schilling talked last month about trying to come back after missing all of last season following shoulder surgery, but decided to call it quits after 20 seasons and 216 wins. Schilling will be an interesting Hall of Fame case, because his win total is far below the typical threshold for enshrinement while his postseason performance is among the best in baseball history. He made six All-Star teams, pitched in four World Series, finished second in the Cy Young balloting in each of his three 20-win seasons and ranks 15th all time with 3,116 strikeouts.
what are peoples thoughts on his hall of fame chances?
