According to a source with knowledge of the Red Sox offseason plans, the Red Sox do not plan to re-sign pitcher Curt Schilling, who is reportedly looking to return in June or July and finish off the season with the contender. Schilling recently made comments about Manny Ramirez not trying in Boston, and that has annoyed several Red Sox executives. Schilling also complained that he could have pitched in the playoffs if the Red Sox gave him the go ahead for surgery sooner.
Schilling has put together an unbelievable career, going 4-1 with 2.06 ERA in the World Series and putting 216 wins over the course of twenty-years with the Orioles, Astros, Phillies, Diamondbacks, and Red Sox. If he has got the Hall of Fame on his mind, he would be smart to retire and ride off on a somewhat good terms.
