    Schilling is done

    Filed under: Boston Red Sox, MLB;

    curt-shillingCurt Schilling announced today that he will be retiring. The 42-year-old super star last pitched in 2007 with some amazing stats. He has a career record of 216-146, with 3,116 strikeouts. In the postseason, he went 10-2 with a  2.23 ERA in 19 starts in 23 years with major league baseball. He has played for three World Series teams, two with the Red Sox and one with the Diamondbacks in 2001. Boston will always remember him for coming to Boston to help break the 86 year World Series drought and his famous bloody sock.

    Schilling said on his blog “To say I’ve been blessed would be like calling Refrigerator Perry “a bit overweight.” The things I was allowed to experience, the people I was able to call friends, teammates, mentors, coaches and opponents, the travel, all of it, are far more than anything I ever thought possible in my lifetime.

    Four World Series, three World Championships. That there are men with plaques in Cooperstown who never experienced one — and I was able to be on three teams over seven years that won it all — is another “beyond my wildest dreams” set of memories I’ll take with me.”
