Curt Schilling's 200th Victory

Curt Schilling announced this morning on WEEI’s Dennis & Callahan (click for interview) that he will not be retiring at the end of this season as he has previously stated. While not under contract past this season, Schilling would like to remain in Boston and will be talking extension with the Red Sox front office this spring.

How this impacts the Red Sox long term planning around their pitching staff is unknown. With the young players ready to make their mark on the pitching staff Schilling’s return could push Tim Wakefield out of the starting rotation in 2008.

“I’m in discussions with the Red Sox, we had talked last week and there’s a lot going on obviously right now, but where I’m going to play beyond 2007 … I hope it’s Boston,” he said . “This is where I want to play and in the days leading up to spring training we’ll figure it out one way or the other. If I go into this season without a contract from the Red Sox then I will go out and find a home for 2008.”

When asked if the negotiations with the Red Sox will go only through the end of spring training, Schilling said, “Well, probably not even then. We’re set to talk here again this week and we’ll talk probably in the days leading up to spring training, but there’s so much going on this year here from the team standpoint that I’ve never been comfortable dragging stuff like this into the season … and I wouldn’t do that this year either.”

Curt’s announcement bounced Mike Edelman’s first Inside the Monster column on the Red Sox Times down a post, please take the time to read it and welcome his weekly column to the Red Sox Times.

    Wow, we ALL picked up on this. And Curt will pitch for us in ‘08…if he wants to. There is no way the Sox will prevent him from retiring on any other club. He’s going to have a great year, and until someone tells me otherwise, and that’s impossible, HE IS OUR ACE! Great post……P

    Yeah i am in the middle of this right now too. This is great news. Lets hope the Boston braintrust re-signs him quickly.

  3. […] There’s a reason why I read other sports blogs because you usually can pick up something from a blog that you, the reader, may not read. As I first saw on The Red Sox Times, Curt Schilling announced on the morning show of Dennis & Callahan on WEEI in Boston that in fact he will not be retiring at the end of the 2007 season. He has already been in discussions with the Red Sox front office and said during the interview that he will be sitting down with the Sox front office to discuss an extension. He also stated that he wants to stay and pitch in Boston during the 2008 season. I guess this means he won’t be running against Senator Kerry in 2008 for the Massachusetts U.S. Senate seat that Kerry currently holds. […]

    Hell, if he pitches well in 2008 and gets the Sox deep into the playoffs, he wouldn’t have to campaign against Kerry. He could just roll right from the bullpen to the ballot box and run away with that election.

    I don’t live in Massachusetts, and am not a Republican, but I’d love to see that happen (mostly because it means a good year for the Sox in 2008 from Curt)

    What’s hysterical is the inference that Curt Schilling could actually beat a Democrat in Massachusetts. Let’s also, kids, see how well he pitches this year before committing to next year.
