Schilling on signing with the Sox

I dare not cherry pick quotes from number 38. Read both parts of his article/posting.

I can't figure out if this is a 'retirement goodbye' or a "I'll come back in August - for another team" goodbye.

I hope that if he does want to come back for a 1/2 or a third of a season, that Boston finds a way to do it.

Yeah, that definitely reads like a "so long and thanks for all the fish" type of essay. My gut tells me it's a retirement...a well-deserved one at that.

From other stuff I've read he seems to want to stay in the Boston area... a little weird given the fact that he is a "little" more conservative than the average Massachusetts resident.

In fact, I'd guess he's more conservative than the average Mass. Republican.

If he's healed up at all, I'd love to see him do one more season in Boston. But he doesn't strike me as the type who'd hang on without being able to contribute.

I wonder how he'd do if he ran for Kennedy's senate seat...
