Probably in his best interest to hang 'em up, though if he's at all capable of pitching, I'd expect to see him back somewhere; this doesn't seem to be the way he'd want to end his career.

I think it's best for him. He's not going to be a dominating pitcher anymore, it would probably be best for him to go out without dipping down and having a bad year.

Anyone else see Schilling becoming another cohost on WEEI's "The Big Show"?

He should have gone out winning the World Series in 2007.

There is no reason for him to pitch in 2009.

IMO he should retire, and give the 8million he got in 2008 to the Jimmy Fund or some charity.

He won't make his weight clauses so if he leans in any direction then momentum is sure to take over. :p

I hope that the first quote (from the Welcome thread) is not "what is going on now." Whether or not it is, you need to stop bumping these old threads. These one-line "what is happening here" posts are annoying and on the borderline of violating rules. In the past week:

He is a total know nothing right wing blow hard nut bag.....

He is also somewhat above average vs. the current crop of pitchers in the HoF (please spare me the wins argument), I wrote extensively on this in HOF and comparisons about 3-4 months back. He won't get in right away but he should. He's well ahead of guys such as Catfish.

I can only stomach the midday show on EEI and the weekend baseball shows. I doubt he could make the big show since his ego and Ordways meeting regularly would cause a shift in the time/space continium.

why all the hate for schill? I may not agree with his views but I was so happy when we traded for him and loved when he took the mound for us.

I'd look into getting him into our organization at some level as a pitching coach.
He's an annoying knob, but he knows pitching better than most.

you cant deny what hes done professionally, but personally i cant stand him and his comments about new yorkers enjoying Brady's injury were uncalled for. but this is nothing new, there are plenty of players you can respect professionally but not personally like...manny.

What hate? Just because you appreciate a guy at work doesn't mean you have to knee jerk like him off the field, or stay quiet about what you don't like. This is Boston, everyone gets to have an opinion on anything.

This is America where we have the freedom of speech. Schilling takes it to the umpteeth level to get some face time. Or is that mouth time?

Guy doesn't pitch for us anymore either. When he did and was healthy he was stud like. He is a BB pitcher its like taking advice from Madonna on who to vote for.

In one ear, out both of them.

Yeah I'm with you. He's a blowhard, but that's his right. We all have the option of not listening...we're choosing to sit here and gripe about it, so whatever.

Some one did mention Schilling and pitching coach in the same sentence though, and I don't think that's a bad idea for him. I don't know if it happens with the Red Sox...but it's probably a safe bet he'll get that gig somewhere, with someone, down the line.

Yea, that was me.

He learned to adjust pretty successfully when he lost his fastball and became a good low-90's - high-80's "precision" type of pitcher.

Besides,whenever he pitched he'd go back and record the pitch sequences he'd throw all the hitters and the result of their at bats. That strikes me as the kind of meticulous/observant/fastidious mind that would make him a good pitching coach - they should hire him in Portland - he'd be able to teach Buchholz brashness and confidence if nothing else.

Yeah I think he's definitely headed that way. Buchholz has got to figure out a more determined, steady approach to pitching. As far as confidence...homeboy's dating a Penthouse Pet, he should be plenty confident. On that note...maybe he was just tired out? Hahaha.
