LorfTVP Posted January 29, 2007 Share Posted January 29, 2007 Schilling Basically, while not pulling a Clemens, Schilling talked it over with his family who wanted him to continue pitching. Most likely he'll pitch again for the Red Sox and he wishes to complete a contract extension before the season starts but he is willing to go to another team...except not the Yankees. I'd really like to see Schilling remembered as a member of the Red Sox. If he can pad his statistics he has a slim chance at the hall, vaulted mostly by his 3015 strikeouts, 14th all time. If he can maintain 170-180 strikeouts these next two years he can make it into the top 10 so long as Greg Maddux strikes out half as many, which is unlikely. But still, with two more seasons with the Red Sox, not only does he have a chance at another World Series title to add to the two he already has, but a chance to get 30+ wins, 350+ Ks, and keep his era steady enough to be considered. Of course one must also love his K/BB ratio which is 2nd best all time after Tommy Bond who played from 1874-1884...so in reality, Schilling's #1. I'm ranting a bit, but I just see a chance at the hall and with not much to show in Philadelphia and only 3 1/2 years in Arizona, I'm hoping his legacy in Boston outweighs his statistics elsewhere and gives him a chance in our cap.
