Schill May Still Have the Pill @ Fenway!
Curt Schilling -- the winningest pitcher in playoff history -- is close to signing an incentive ladened one year contract with the Boston Red Sox! Schilling expressed a serious interest in staying in Boston and wearing a Sox Cap into his retirement. It is a tremendous move for the Sox, who are the beneficiary of Curt's leadership on and off the field. No one at Fenway is talking right now, but all indications lean to the Sox & Schilling making the big move in the next day or so.
"Talks with the Red Sox are moving. Theo and I have spoken multiple times daily over the past week and given the current situation I am feeling very confident that we will be able to finalize a 1 year contract to allow us a chance to finish our career as members of the Red Sox organization. "There are some things to iron out and details that must be finalized for both sides but barring something unforseen or outrageously odd happening I feel very comfortable that I will finish my career here."-- 11.5.07, Curt Schilling, 38Pitches.com, late in the evening
