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.

After a highly successful run with the Atlanta Braves, Mazzone left for Baltimore after the 2005 season. He received a hefty raise and got to work with his best friend, Sam Perlozzo. But if he had it to do over, Mazzone would accept whatever Atlanta offered and assume his customary place in the dugout next to Braves manager Bobby Cox. "At the time it was a great move, but now I regret it. You see the difference in organizations and how things are run and, believe me, the Atlanta Braves are about as good as it gets," Mazzone said. "I got a chance to go back to my home state. My dad’s 86 and my mother’s 81, and they got to see me more in two years than they had in the last 16. Then I have three boys that live up in western Maryland. So we were able to get a lot closer. That part of it was good. But now, as I sit here on my back porch, I second-guess it." He’s out of the game and desperate to get back in. He has no expectations of matching his salary with the Orioles, and won’t subject a would-be employer to dealing with an agent. If you want Leo Mazzone to be your pitching coach, just dial him up and make an offer. "I’ve let it be known to general managers in the big leagues that money is not an issue. I don’t want them thinking it is," he said. "I’m ready to bounce whenever somebody calls. I’ll have my bags packed in 10 minutes."
