On Monday it was announced that Curt Schilling will be having season ending surgery. I think Schilling is going to retire at the end of this season. Here's why:
- He is 42 years old.
- He has been playing in the Majors since 1988.
- He has not played a game so far in the 2008 season.
- His contract is up at the end of the season.
Schilling, who was born in Alaska in 1966, began his career with the Baltimore Orioles. In 1991, he played for the Houston Astros. For the next eight seasons, he played for the Philadelphia Phillies.
In 2000, he went to the Arizona Diamondbacks and, along with Randy Johnson, helped the Diamondbacks win the 2001 World Series. In 2004, while Schilling went to the Red Sox, Johnson went to the Yankees. Schilling won two more World Series rings in Boston.
We'll have to wait and see what Curt Schilling decides to do once this season is up.
