What's New with Curt Schilling
Curt for Senate
A movement to draft Curt Schilling into a race to unseat John Kerry in his re-election bid has taken shape on WRKO and the Todd Feinburg Show. Please help encourage Curt to seriously explore the possibility by signing our online petition. Curt announces this morning his intention to keep playing beyond the 2007 season (he had said he would only play one more year), showing just what a clever politician he is and how strongly he's considering a Senate run.
Schilling: I'll play in '08
By Steve Silva, Boston.com Staff
Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling said this morning on Boston sports radio station WEEI that he will not retire from baseball at the end of this season, as he had previously had planned.
"I will play in 2008," were the words Curt Schilling told Red Sox Nation this morning on WEEI.
His contract with the Red Sox ends after this season.
"Over the last probably 5-6 months and my wife and kids and I have been talking and we came to conclusion about a week or 10 days ago that I was not going to retire in 2007, that I was going to go ahead," said Schilling.."I always believed physically I was going to be more than ok, I feel like last year, while I certainly didn't have a year like I know I could have, towards the end I became a lot healthier and my wife and kids want me to continue to play which was the only reason I was retiring in the first place."
"Where I'm going to play beyond 2007, I hope it's Boston, but I will go out and find a home to pitch,” he said. “I hope it's here but there's also that possibility [of pitching for another team]. It would not be to New York."
Schilling said his wife and family sat down and had a heart to heart and decided that he would continue to play.
