Schilling

Curt Schilling officially retired. If anyone wants to say "no" on Schilling in the Hall, then OK, great. But if it ever comes down to saying "no" to Schilling but "yes" on Jack Morris thanks to "postseason heroics," then please keep their actual postseason numbers in mind, rather than the fantasies of Jack Morris dominating and intimidating every time out: Morris: 92.1 IP, 7-4, 64 K, 32 BB, 3.80 ERA Good numbers, plus one truly legendary game. Schilling: 133.1 IP, 11-2, 120 K, 25 BB, 2.23 ERA Ridiculous numbers. Bloody sock game. And then you get into the fact that Schilling (career adj. ERA+ of 127) was just way better than Morris (105). Morris threw about 600 more innings than Schilling, but struck out about 700 less batters. Morris' Hall of Fame case being mostly aided by postseason legend is a bit of a "land of make believe" situation. Schilling's isn't. Schilling is one of the great postseason performers in the history of baseball. I'm not a particularly big fan of Schilling's either (though I have no "hate" for the guy), but I feel blessed to have seen him perform. If I had a Hall vote, he'd get mine.
