  1. Schilling: the Sox should sign Josh Beckett now

    Feb 8, 2010, 4:46 PM EDT

    Curt Schilling, arguing that the Red Sox should sign Josh Beckett to a contract extension right now: Here’s why, barring some freakish medical issue which I assume he doesn’t have or there would be bigger problems, you sign Josh now. The one worry, other than health, you have when signing ANY player to a long…

  2. 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…

  3. Curt Schilling analyzes the John Lackey signing

    Dec 15, 2009, 1:52 PM EDT

    Over at his personal website Curt Schilling posted his thoughts on the Red Sox signing John Lackey. Summarizing some of the interesting points: * “Holy #$!&!” (Note: That’s a direct quote.) * He doesn’t think signing Lackey “precludes them from signing” Jason Bay or Matt Holliday because “they have the money.” (Note: Presumably he wrote…

  4. Schilling Piles on Pedro

    Nov 6, 2009, 8:55 AM EDT

    It’s been five years since Curt Schilling and Pedro Martinez were less-than-perfectly-friendly teammates, yet old bloody sock can’t seem to let things go. After talking about how he didn’t care all that much for Pedro’s sense of humor and laid back personality back in Boston, Schilling brought some seriously oblivious irony to the table: “You…

  5. Curt Schilling doesn't know what he's talking about

    Sep 25, 2009, 9:20 AM EDT

    Curt Schilling, after saying that A-Rod is already starting to choke before the playoffs even start, tries to explain why A-Rod is a poor postseason performer: “For a guy that’s as good as he is, he still strikes out a lot. Guys who strike out a lot tend to have a tough time in October.”…

  6. Curt Schilling's approval rating is surprisingly low

    Sep 18, 2009, 1:38 PM EDT

    Curt Schilling’s first season in Boston was 2004, and he went 21-6 with a 3.29 ERA in the regular season and 3-1 with a 3.57 ERA (and one bloody sock) in the playoffs as the Red Sox won their first World Series since 1918. Three seasons later a 40-year-old Schilling went 3-0 with a 3.00…

    Sep 2, 2009, 5:18 PM EDT

    It’s a long shot, but that won’t stop all of the fun specuation. Retired 200-game winner Curt Schilling on Wednesday told NECN that he hadn’t ruled out running for the U.S. Senate seat formerly held by the late Ted Kennedy. The AP story can be found here.

    He’s probably the fifth starter on this Tigers team at the moment. So why not?

  11. Great Moments in Steroids Derp

    Call me crazy, but I think Maddux, Glavine and Thomas woulda made the Hall of Fame even if Congress didn’t hold steroids hearings.

  15. Three Jeopardy! contestants whiffed on a slam-dunk Hall of Fame answer

    Jan 17, 2014, 10:30 PM EDT

    Roger Clemens Red Sox

    In the interest of full disclosure before I jump into the meat of the subject and poke some fun at some Jeopardy! contestants, I consistently whiff on a good 99 percent of Jeopardy! clues. But when it’s Teen Jeopardy time, or if there’s a baseball category, I’m ready to risk it all on a Daily…

  16. What to expect over the next five years of Hall of Fame balloting

    Jan 10, 2014, 4:20 PM EDT

    crystal ball

    Don’t look at me like that. There’s literally nothing else going on right now. Anyway: The great Jay Jaffe — the creator of the JAWS Hall of Fame scoring system which ranks a candidate’s worthiness of induction — takes a look at the potential Hall of Fame ballots over the next five years to see…

  17. Looking ahead to next year’s Hall of Fame ballot

    Jan 9, 2014, 12:28 AM EDT

    Pedro Martinez

    Because one can never get too much of a head start. As Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and Frank Thomas exit the ballot as Hall of Fame inductees, a new and nearly as intriguing class of first timers will arrive in 11 months: Randy Johnson: 5 Cy Youngs, 2nd all-time in strikeouts, 303 wins Pedro Martinez:…

  18. Deadspin reveals who gave them their Hall of Fame vote

    Jan 8, 2014, 3:00 PM EDT

    Man-Handing-out-Money

    It’s Dan LeBatard. And he explains his rationale over at the website today. It’s a pretty good rationale. And, the headline here and picture to the right notwithstanding, LeBatard received no payment for it. He gave it up willingly and freely. And the ballot that the Deadspin readers submitted — Greg Maddux, Frank Thomas, Tom Glavine,…

  19. Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and Frank Thomas Elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame

    Jan 8, 2014, 2:05 PM EDT

    Cooperstown

    The 2014 induction class of the Baseball Hall of Fame was announced Wednesday afternoon and Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and Frank Thomas are on their way to Cooperstown. Players must be named on 75% of the Baseball Writers Association of America’s ballots to get in. Maddux was named on 97.2%, Glavine 91.9% and Thomas 83.7%.…

  20. This is the year Hall of Fame ballot reality catches up with Jack Morris

    Jan 8, 2014, 10:46 AM EDT

    Jack Morris Tigers

    I, like many, believe four players will get elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame today: Greg Maddux will be elected almost unanimously (I suspect at least four people will not vote for him), Tom Glavine will be in the mid-to-high 90s in percentage, Frank Thomas will go in comfortably and Craig Biggio will just…

  21. The massive Hall of Fame post

    Jan 7, 2014, 2:00 PM EDT

    The Hall of Fame ... has never really married its two founding visions.  Some people still view it as Alexander Cleland’s place for parents and children to enjoy the history of baseball and maybe go to the field for a catch. Some view it the way Ford Frick did, as baseball’s “Hall of Great Americans,” to honor players who represent the fundamental principles that make up the spirit of the American people.

    Part I: A short history First, just a little bit of history. The Baseball Hall of Fame, more or less, was the brainchild of two people. The first knew nothing whatsoever about baseball. The second romanticized the game beyond all reason. You can think about whose spirit still lingers over Cooperstown, N.Y. The first was…

  22. So, how’s the Hall of Fame voting going so far?

    Dec 31, 2013, 11:36 AM EDT

    Cooperstown

    Every year my friend Repoz over at Baseball Think Factory keeps track of the Hall of Fame balloting via his “HOF Ballot Collecting Gizmo!”  It’s a nice snapshot of what voters who have made their ballots public thus far are doing. At the moment, with 14.4% of the vote in (based on last year’s number…

  23. Dan Shaughnessy clearly doesn’t give a crap about his Hall of Fame ballot

    Dec 30, 2013, 8:41 AM EDT

    dan shaughnessy

    As I’ve noted several times, my Hall of Fame thing isn’t necessarily voters getting “the right ballot.” It’s just about having an actual coherent philosophy and approach and maintaining some level of intellectual consistency about yourself. For example, Ken Rosenthal and I differ sharply about PED users in the Hall of Fame, but his Hall…

  24. Watch the trailer for “Million Dollar Arm”

    Dec 23, 2013, 1:34 PM EDT

    Jon Hamm

    This is the movie that is based — quite loosely, it appears, anyway — on the Rinku and Dinesh story.  I feel like it’ll be a good movie regardless of how close it hews to reality, though. For one thing Jon Hamm is cool. For another: the Curt Schilling cameo looks like it’ll be really,…
