Reports say Curt Schilling and the Red Sox are close to a deal that would bring Schill back to the defending World Series Champions:
The deal is believed to be incentive-laden and, according to sources, might be simply contingent on a final physical. Schilling had initially been looking for a $13 million extension before last season.
I'm excited. I'd love to see Schilling finish his career in Boston. And for the current market for starting pitchers, I don't think $13 million, or however it should break down, would be too much for him. As long as he stays healthy, I think he'll be a solid starter. He won't be the 2004 Schilling, but he'll probably be one of the better arms once the market pans out.
