So Much for Schilling

New, 22 comments

Scratch one pitching upgrade possibility off the list: the Red Sox re-signed Curt Schilling today to a one-year deal for $8 million, plus another $5 million for meeting innings pitched and weight incentives. It's a deal that I would have been happy for the Phils to have struck with their one-time ace, but given Schilling's stated preference to end his career with Boston it probably would have taken more to lure him to OFJOAB.

Not much encouraging news thus far from the GM meetings. Pat Gillick indicated that our likely third baseman next year will be Wegg Helbbs, perhaps in part because Garrett Atkins is off the market and the Yankees are likely in on anyone else who might be of interest (Mike Lowell, Joe Crede).
