Curt Schilling said he has no plans to be on an Opening Day Roster. But what about a post-season roster?
The veteran righty, most recently of the Boston Red Sox, is recovering from shoulder surgery and is mulling a comeback. a report in the Orlando Sentinel indicated he may consider pitching for a team like the Tampa Bay Rays and presumably the Chicago Cubs in 2009, although Schilling never specifically mentioned "Cubs" in the article.
Appearing in ESPN The Weekend activities Saturday at Disney World, Schilling told the paper "the challenge would be in a place like Tampa Bay or Chicago," and he could be lured back for another season. Money is not a major factor, the report stated. Schilling, 42, missed all of the 2008 season with a shoulder injury.
"Absolutely I'll come back," he said.
