UPDATE: Curt Schilling NOT planning a comeback

Jan 24, 2010, 3:49 PM EDT

Update: Well, that didn’t last long. In a conversation with Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald this afternoon, Curt Schilling denied that he is attempting a comeback:

 “Nope,” he said.

Carry on, everyone.

1:47 pm: One of his tweets this afternoon may lead some people to think so:

“Working out again…..not sure I can add anything to that other than I feel it in every fiber of my being, every step I take….”

Schilling, who turned 43 in November, hasn’t appeared in the majors since Game 2 of the 2007 World Series against the Rockies.

    Heh heh, here’s Curt, who’s been gritting his teeth over deciding not to run for Teddy Kennedy’s seat after seeing almost as big a right wing asshole as he is run away with it. Now there’s nothing left for him but to try to play baseball again. Before he comes back as a non-roster invitee someplace next month, he should definitely make a point of firing his pollster.

    He can hint all he wants. If he tries it, he will fail. No matter how desperate a team may be to sign him, he will not be an effective starter. If he has any chance of playing again, he might be effective as a one inning closer. Even that is doubtful.

    Sounds like he might be talking about his horrible constipation. He will eat some prunes and the feeling will be gone.

    This guy needs a post-retirement hobby other than rooting for the Yankees.

    “This guy needs a post-retirement hobby other than rooting for the Yankees.”
    Dude, he’s got all kinds of hobbies… running a videogame studio, being loudmouth jackass, cheerleading the fall of the republic… though I’ll grant you that the last two overlap quite a bit.

    When Schilling opens his mouth, reach for the toilet tissue.

  7. Rettop15 - Jan 24, 2010 at 5:41 PM

    Aw, he’s just dizzy from blood loss. Put a tourniquet (hope I spelled that correctly) on his ankle, and another one on his mouth and forget about him.

    Curt is an idiot. Great pitcher, but still an idiot.

    lots of mouths flapping in the breeze over a guy saying one word in response to a question. (see all the idiots above for reference)

    I think Schilling is a big-mouthed blowhard…NOT an idiot, just a blowhard. Hate his politics, too.
    However, as a Sox fan, I CANNOT take anything from his accomplishments. Between the Diamondbacks of 2001, and the Sox of ’04 and ’07, this guy has done it all. He deserves respect.
    However, he’d get more from other people if he just ate a nice fat slice of humble pie and enjoyed his retirement…but that just doesn’t seem in his character…

    Good riddance.

  12. Dan A - Jan 24, 2010 at 7:13 PM

    Schilling is nothing more than a loud-mouth moron with no substance in what he says. GOOD RIDDANCE CLOWN !!!!

  13. YankfanDean - Jan 24, 2010 at 8:08 PM

    It’s time for ol’ Curt to take that bloody sock out of the glass enclosure that I’m sure he keeps on the wall,out to his rocking chair and start humming the tune “for the good times”!!!!

  14. hop - Jan 24, 2010 at 8:16 PM

    i wish he would come back so he could get beaten up everytime he took the mound, oh well too bad.

  15. CoachJK - Jan 24, 2010 at 8:18 PM

    I HEARD HE AND FAVRE PLAYED GOLF TOGETHER – GOT SOME IDEAS FROM BRETT – MAYBE THE YANKEES WOULD BE INTERESTED

    Thank god.

    You all suck curt is the man.

  18. Rettop15 - Jan 24, 2010 at 10:37 PM

    How eloquent.

  19. hop - Jan 24, 2010 at 11:09 PM

    Why would the Yanks need a washed up fool like Curt? Yanks are getting younger not like the redsuks who wont even make the playoffs in “10

  20. FC - Jan 24, 2010 at 11:19 PM

    Curt had great skills as a pitcher, but showed that he is hard-pressed to walk & chew gum at the same time in the 1993 World Series when he covered his sorry head with a towel as the Blue Jays trounced his own team. This no-class nutbar should return to the National League, should he wish to pitch again, so that the boys can take target practice at an empty head. Right behind the left ear Curt, here it comes….

    I would be curious to see what he’s got after a couple years out of the game. I hate his politics, but I can seperate that from his game, and he was one of the top pitchers of the last couple decades. He was one of a few pitchers that has retired in the last few years prematurely. It seemed he still had game, though maybe not top-notch health anymore. Mike Mussina, Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine,and possibly Randy Johnson, although in his case it looked like his back didn’t want to cooperate anymore. Jamie Moyer is still in the game and he’s older than those guys.

    He is just kicking himself when he sees a Cosmopolitan Centerfold standing in front of a pickup truck being called “Senator”. This is his version of “I am absolutely not running, and if drafted, will not accept the nomination”. Political con man in training.

    Listen to all you a-holes in this post. You all have taken the word of a jackass reporter and ASSUME that Schilling meant he is making a comeback. He said NOTHING of the sorts, yet you ALL have criticized him for it. How about criticizing the moron that had nothing to write about that day, spent his time on twitter looking for something…anything…to write about and came up with “working out again…” to report on?!?!
    All you losers that went after Schill really deserve this kind of “reporting” anyway.
    Get a life!

  24. Jonny5 - Jan 25, 2010 at 9:00 AM

    If Hack reporters would stay out of his face we wouldn’t have to listen to what comes out of Schillings cock holster. Just a thought…..

    all of this is so much hyper-bowl – still Curt is da man, man
