Curt Schilling Done In Boston ?

Posted by Mike on November 3, 2008

MLB.com’s Ian Browne is reporting that Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling has filed for free agency all but ending his Red Sox career. I tend to disagree with Browne, this is just a formality that all players must do. Yes, it may appear that Schilling might want to comeback for one more year, but this definitely does not signify the end of his Red Sox career. If anything Schilling owes the Red Sox after the fiasco last year in which he basically stole $8 Million dollars from them. What’s not to say that Schilling comes back around June or July and signs with the Sox for somewhere between $2 and $4 Million dollars ? Schilling career as a Red Sox has been an impressive one, 53-29 with two World Series. But there’s one more thing Schilling wants: to get in the Hall of Fame. More from MLB.com:

BOSTON — In what likely signified the end of his highly memorable tenure with the Boston Red Sox — and possibly his impressive career — veteran right-hander Curt Schilling filed for free agency on Friday.

But 2008 was not kind to Schilling. After signing a one-year, $8 million deal to stay in Boston, the righty had immense pain in his right biceps area before Spring Training even started.

His bid at rehab went for naught, as Schilling had to undergo surgery in June and didn’t throw a pitch the entire season.

Schilling has said several times since the surgery that he is leaning toward retirement. However, he has also hinted that there’s a chance he would pitch the second half of the season for an interested team, much like Roger Clemens did the last two years of his career.
