The ever crafty Curt Schilling seems to have come up with a new strategy to try and get the Red Sox to extend his contract.
He keeps talking about how he doesn’t want to play for the Yankees. This, he knows, will be interpreted as he actually does want to play in New York.
Check out these quotes from
the huge clown Schilling in the Boston Globe:
“I’m probably one of the worst hated opposing players for their fans. I doubt they’d want me there. It’s got nothing to do with Brian Cashman. I love that guy. And I love Mr. Steinbrenner. But if I went to the Yankees, it would be me walking out of Boston and putting my finger up to the fans.
“I won’t do it. And the dollar value will not tip the scales. If they gave me $25 million to pitch one season in Yankee Stadium, I’d still say no.”
I certainly can’t speak for Brian Cashman. But somehow I don’t think the Yankees would find the idea of signing Schilling appealing for 25 cents. Perhaps he needs to start bringing up the Mets. He’d be a youngster on the staff there.
