Expected. I think he had no interest from other teams. The Sox might have come calling in the season if they had 2-3 starters banged up that that's about the only way they would.

I think Cubs were exploring the possibilities but I think his body has just given out.

I think so. 200+ wins and a 3.46 ERA is not exactly the BEST line. (I think 350+ wins is a lock) But judging by all the history (bloody sock, cornerstone to comeback win, dynasty) I think he will be able to make it in. We all know Selig, and how big he is with image. Well, Schilling's image is one of the best out there, pitching in times with Bonds, Sosa, Clemens, Etc.. He is one of the TRUE great pitchers. So I believe it is... Schilling + Stats = No Hall... BUT.. Schilling + Stats + Variables = Hall. I think it would be great to see him in

Hall of Famer for sure!

Also the missing piece in the Sox puzzle of breaking the curse!

Thanks Curt for everything!!!!

avg about 10 wins/season

it isn't the hall of really good, or the really good in the postseason, it is the hall of fame

fwiw i don't think santo should be in.

I'm iffy on the Hall thing. I would say no stats wise, but you are right he broke the curse with the Red Sox and then the sock thing and all of that. Also him coming out hard on the steroid users and all that. He may be one of the few pitchers that wasn't using the roids during the 90's.

maybe

I find it odd that his numbers got better after age 30.

Sad, but I question all oddities now.

No.

Maddux, Glavine, Smoltz, Johnson, Hoffman, Rivera, and probably Pedro are the only ones retiring now or soon that I think are HOFers.

He's going to begin focusing on campaigning for Sarah Palin in 2012
