Not a 3 way deal (sorry chizip).
Its all up to Schilling now, he wants an extension before waiving his no trade clause, Theo is on his way to Phoenix as we speak.

Now...where to find the money?

I am officially placing manny ramierez on ebay this morning. The bidding will start at $5.00 and there is no reserve. Get your 100 RBI man here ladies and gentlemen. We have people to see, players to sign, and are in need of those millions. Please feel free to bid more than once, as the highest bidder wins!

you'd think after watching tom glavine with the mets last year that people shouldn't rely on 37 year old starting pitchers... especially ones comming off a year that he had injury problems like schilling...

I think Schilling will be a good pitcher but don't know if he'll be great in the AL. As Headache stated, he is 37 coming off a season with some injuries. Also, as we all know, there is no "automatic" out in the 9 hole. He is going to the "softball "league with the DH. I hope he does well though.

if he comes through and performans like he has in the past, it's a great pick up... but you never can tell with aging pitchers in new environments... especially in new leagues. we shall see.

different pitchers totally...

glavine is more of a pussballin finesse lefty, who lived on the corners. when the strike zone tightened, especially on the corners, he got worse. Just like in the 97 series against the Marlins, when maddux and glavine didnt get the calls, they got worse.

Schilling is obviously a power pitcher. i dont see how changing leagues will affect him, it usually affects hitters more. I think schilling can be dominant for another year, maybe two, and be a pretty quality starter for 2-3 more years. far better than Glavine for the next few years.

Even w/ his injuries, he had a 2.95 ERA and 190 Ks in 168 innings. Pretty damn good.

ummm well finesse pitchers usually last longer than power pitchers. throwin' the ball as hard as humanly possiable tends to mess up the ole' shoulder... funny how that works. glavine still had the same stuff he had the year before... just couldn't hit the corners, like you said.

last year schilling had an apendectomy, a broken hand (allegedly from punching a questec camera), problems with the left knee, the hammy and his groin...

he has 13 million left on his deal from the diamondbacks, then the 25.5 option the sox gave him kicks in with 12.5 in '05 and '06, with a player option for 13 million in '07. so much for the fiscal responsability discussed around the time they placed manny on waivers. they're now looking at the possability of paying 13 million dollars to a 40 year old, who also had injury problems with the phillies in 94, 95, 96 and 99.

i'll say it again... if he stays healthy, it's a great move... if anotnio mcdyess stayed healthy for the knicks, that woulda been a great move too. has done wonders since...

and on a side note... pedro's strikeout totals last year were their lowest in a non-injury season since 1995 with montreal.

and the diamondbacks have now traded for richie sexson... another case of bud selig's own team being inept.

and gary sheffield is likely the new right fielder for your new york yankees
