"I actually broke out a pen and paper the last couple days," Schilling said Tuesday in his weekly radio appearance while driving to Fenway Park for the Red Sox victory parade. "There's a very realistic chance I won't ever play with them again."
Regardless of where he ends up (even if it's the Yankees), Schilling deserves a statue erected outside of Fenway Park for the contribution he's made to two Boston championships. The Curse couldn't have been broken without him.
Having said that, I'm reminded of a rumor a while back on PTI saying that Schilling wanted to ride off into the sunset with Tampa Bay. Where do you think he ends up?
They have to get a new field manager before they get too far into the offseason, they'll want to have the new GM hired to be part of that discussion, and so they can't wait until the season is over to make that move.
