Theo: Schilling Will Stay For 2008.But.........

In an appearance on WEEI radio, Theo had this to say about Curt Schilling........

"I have little doubt in my mind that if Curt wants to pitch in '08 that he's going to be a member of the Boston Red Sox."

Peter here. BUT, (there's always a but, isn't there?), this from the Herald....

"Sox chairman Tom Werner said the team is more likely to wait and see how the 40-year-old looks on the mound this season before issuing an extension.
“It’s understandable that a player would be wanting to talk to management about extending a contract,” said Werner, who arrived yesterday with fellow owners John Henry and Larry Lucchino. “It’s also understandable for us to take a peek before giving him more of a ‘yes’ answer.”

Peter here. So, where does that leave us? In limbo, but not for long. Of this I am sure. Curt has to be more flexible. This thing WILL GET DONE in the first couple months of the season. I know it! But to expect the club to give him another $13 million year without being able to see him pitch two or three games, real games, not spring training games, is not fair to the team. I cannot imagine Curt wearing another uniform next year. And neither can Theo and company. And let us all remember this...his ERA last year was a sparkling 3.97. So, what do you think, my opinionated readers? I'd love to read and respond to your comments.

I'll be back later with more Sox comings and goings a little later.There's certainly plenty of both! Take your pick.

I am sure like Theo said we will see Curt in a Sox uniform next season and maybe even beyond.
