Should the Boston Red Sox re-sign Curt Schilling?
With an overwhelming 88% of the vote, thefoulline.com readers have decided that this should be Curt Schilling’s last season in Boston.
I have mixed feelings about this. Part of me says get rid of him. He is a self-involved blow-hard. His best years are behind him, and he seems to be more interested in his video game company. He makes $13 million per season that could be used to give the Sox more flexibility in the offseason.
The other part of me says keep him. He has really improved over his last few starts, and when you think of big game pitchers in Major league baseball history, Schilling is on the short list. Three days ago, I would have said let him go, but with the recent developments with Clay Buchholz and Tim Wakefield having back problems, if Schilling would sign a one-year deal in the $13 million neighborhood, I would keep him.
Maybe it’s because I have a soft spot in my heart for bloggers.
