    Curt Schilling Done?

    ESPN - Schilling to undergo season-ending shoulder surgery - MLB
    "My season is over and there is a pretty decent chance I have thrown my last pitch forever," he said.
    If he does retire will he be a first ballot hall of famer? Will his legacy be the "bloody sock" game?

    Hall of famer? Absolutely. First ballot? I think that's going to depend on who's on the ballot with him. Considering who all might be eligible in 5 years, I think there's a chance.

    He is a HOF'er but I don't know about first ballot.

    Now that he is done, does that mean he will shut his mouth and stop talking about other sports, politics, and other general things he has no clue about? That would be fantastic

    My guess is he will be out there more... The question is will people still listen.

    Maybe he will end up working for ESPN.

    Re: Curt Schilling Done?

    Well do you rate Schilling over Glavine and Smoltz?

    He is not rated over R Johnson, Maddux, Rivera, Hoffman, and (gulp) Clemens. It really depends on who is on the ballot with him. I personally think he is lower than Smoltz for sure and probably Glavine as well

    On issues where Schilling agrees with me, I find that he speaks very eloquently. On issues where Schilling doesn't agree with me, he sounds like a raving idiot. Go figure...

    That would be awful. Might as well ask Paris Hilton her opinion on Global Warming b/c that is what it is like for me to hear Schilling's opinion on everything!!

    Re: Curt Schilling Done?

    When he was pitching for the Diamondback in the World Series, he and Randy Johnson had one of the best pitching performances I've ever seen. My that guy had a wicked sinker.

    It is amazing what a sock, a magic marker, and a camera man can do for baseball history.

    Re: Curt Schilling Done?

    No kidding, I am NOT a big man of Schilling. He seems to point out the faults of everyone else and has "I am better than everyone" attitude.

    He was/is a great pitcher and will make the HOF if there is no steriod controversy or something.

    It's more about the clutch performances in 3 different W.S.

    That's where I will probably disagree with most people. You HOF numbers should be about a career and the criteria should be similar for everyone.

    No doubt he was a great big game pitcher. But if you aren't going to let players in with similar numbers because they didn't get the chance to play in the World Series there is something wrong with that system.

    Re: Curt Schilling Done?

    I think he is a Hall of Famer: 216 wins (a little low), 3116 Ks (magic number), 3.46 ERA (solid), 2 world series championships (EDIT, was it 3?), plus a character. He gets in.

    First ballot? If he does I think there is something wrong. Really I think if you deserve it, you deserve it, and there should be more "first balloters", but the way things are no way. Maddux and Johnson have or will have 300 W's and 3000K's, and they are both first ballot.
