Phillies career (1992-2000)

Schilling was one of the key factors in the Phillies' pennant run in 1993. In that year, Schilling went 16-7 with a 4.02 ERA and 186 strikeouts. Schilling led the Phillies to an upset against the two-time defending National League champion Atlanta Braves in the National League Championship Series.

The Phillies went on to face the defending World Champion Toronto Blue Jays in the World Series. After losing Game 1, he pitched brilliantly in his next start. With the Phillies facing elimination the day after losing a bizarre 15-14 contest at home in Veterans Stadium, Schilling pitched a five-hit shutout that the Phillies won 2-0. // This year in baseball Events January - Reggie Jackson is elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame by the Baseball Writers Association of America, receiving 94% of the vote. ...

The win forced a Game 7, making the Red Sox the first team in MLB history to come back from a three-games-to-none deficit.

Schilling pitched (and won) Game 2 of the 2004 World Series for the Red Sox against the St. Louis Cardinals. In both series, he had to have the tendon in his right ankle stabilized repeatedly, in what has become known as the Schilling Tendon Procedure, after the tendon sheath was torn during his Game 1 ALDS appearance against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

In January 2007, Schilling announced on the Dennis and Callahan show that after talking with his family, he had changed his mind and doesn't want to retire at the conclusion of the 2007 season.[3] He sought to negotiate an extension to his current contract, but Red Sox executives announced that they would not negotiate with him until after the season citing Schilling's age and physical condition as factors in their decision (Schilling reportedly showed up for training camp heavier than normal).[4][5] Schilling went on to say he would become a free agent at the end of the season, for the first time in his career, and would not negotiate with the Red Sox during the 15 days after the end of the World Series when the team has exclusive negotiating rights with potential free agents.[6] On a June appearance on the Dennis and Callahan Show, Schilling stated he would accept a one year extension to his contract at his current salary if the Red Sox offered it to him. Questioned on his statement, Schilling said "I said I wouldn't negotiate a deal during the season, and I'm saying that now.

Scouting Report

During the prime of his career, Schilling was capable of reaching and sustaining speeds of 94-98 mph on his 4-seam fastball. Throughout his career, he has been characterized by a determination to go deep into ballgames, routinely pitching past the sixth and seventh innings. He has combined his endurance with pinpoint control, especially on his fastball. Schilling's "out" pitch is his split-finger fastball, which he generally locates beneath the strike zone (resulting in many swinging strikeouts). He also possesses an above-average changeup, a decent slider, and mixes in an occasional curveball, though he mainly alternates between his fastball and splitter. Though his velocity has decreased in recent years (to the 89-93 range on his fastball), his control has remained excellent, and he consistently sports one of the best K/BB ratios in MLB, including the highest K/BB ratio of all time.

Political advocacy

Schilling campaigned for President George W. Bush in 2004, while certain members of the ownership of the Red Sox campaigned for the challenger, Senator John F. Kerry (D-Mass.). Schilling has apparently been encouraged to run for Kerry's seat in the U.S. Senate in 2008 as a Republican, according to the Boston Herald. [17] However, Schilling was quoted in The Boston Globe as saying that he intended to pitch in 2008, which would preclude a Senate run.

Charity work

Schilling is a supporter of care for ALS sufferers. His Curt's Pitch for ALS program allows fans and organizations to sponsor him, donating to the ALS Association for every strikeout he throws. He also donated to the charity his $25,000 winnings in a celebrity version of Jeopardy! that aired on November 9, 2006. In the 2004 playoffs, after the operation on his ankle, Schilling wrote "K ALS" (short for "strike out ALS") on his shoe, knowing that the cameras would be focusing on his foot numerous times while he was pitching. He also does a weekly radio show with WEEI in Boston that raises over $100,000 each year for ALS patients and research.

Conflicts with players

Schilling was publically criticized by Phillies teammates Mitch Williams, Larry Andersen, and Danny Jackson for his conduct during the 1993 World Series. Whenever Mitch Williams (a hard throwing closer with a penchant for unpredictability and erratic control) was on the mound, CBS television cameras caught Schilling in the dugout hiding his face with a towel. Although Schilling claimed that he was nervous in the heat of the World Series, others accused him of purposely trying to get more face time on television.

Conflicts with management

While with the Phillies, Schilling was a vocal critic of team management, stopping just short of calling the front office incompetent.


During a game as a Diamondback in 2001, he damaged a QuesTec camera with a bat because he disagreed with its intended purpose (evaluating umpires). He felt umpires were changing their strike zones to match the machines. This led to fine and a public exchange of insults with Major League Baseball executive Sandy Alderson who accused Schilling of whining and wanting balls to be called strikes. In response Schilling said Alderson was "ignorant to the facts and ignorant about what I said".[22] This does not adequately cite its references or sources. ... Richard Lynn Alderson (born November 22, 1947 in Seattle, Washington) is the CEO of the Major League Baseball San Diego Padres. ...


Conflicts with media

Schilling has exchanged insults with ESPN and former Arizona Republic reporter Pedro Gomez. The exchanges with Gomez began on November 4, 2001 when Gomez published a column critical of Schilling, the same day Schilling was pitching in game 7 of the 2001 World Series. In his column Gomez stated: "During the past few days, the country ... has discovered Schilling's little secret, the one baseball insiders have known for years but has rarely surfaced into the mainstream. Schilling is something of a con man, someone more intent on polishing his personal image through whatever means possible." He is also quoted later as saying Schilling was “the consummate table for one.” A year later he further incensed Schilling by stating that the friendship between Schilling and teammate Randy Johnson "was merely cosmetic".

In interviews in October 2004 and February 2006 Schilling is quoted as saying about Gomez: "There are a lot of [bad people] in that industry, Pedro Gomez, Joel Heyman, to name a few. People with so little skill in their profession that they need to speculate, make up, fabricate, to write something interesting enough to be printed. What makes them bad people? I am sure I cannot nail the exact reason, but I know some. Jealousy, bitterness, the need to be "different", I am sure there are others, but those are the ones I know off hand." and "You just kind of have to realize that there are people that don't like you and, unfortunately, sometimes those people have a voice, disliking me probably matches my dislike for him (Gomez), but I have a problem with people who don't have integrity and principle, so that stuff happens. You just kind of just let it go."[23][24][25][26]


In 2007, Schilling has engaged in escalating war of words with Boston Globe sports columnist Dan Shaughnessy. Shaughnessy in his column and during television appearances has criticized Schilling for the condition he showed up in for spring training, referred to him as "the Big Blowhard"[27] and mocked Schilling's blog and radio appearances. [28][29] Schilling has responded by using the Sons of Sam Horn forum [30] and his own blog [31] to point out errors in Shaughnessy's columns. In his responses he has referred to Shaughnessy as an "asshole", "tool", a "hack" and an "idiot". The Boston Globe is the most widely-circulated daily newspaper in Boston, Massachusetts and in the greater New England region. ... Dan Shaughnessy is a sports columnist and reporter for The Boston Globe. ... Sons of Sam Horn (SoSH) is a Boston Red Sox-oriented online baseball forum. ...


On April 27, 2007, broadcaster Gary Thorne said that he overheard Red Sox catcher Doug Mirabelli say that the blood on the sock used by Schilling in Game 6 of the 2004 ALCS was actually paint[32]. Mirabelli accused Thorne of lying and a day later, after talking to Mirabelli, Thorne backed off his statement saying he misinterpreted what was intended as a joke, "Having talked with him today, there's no doubt in my mind that's not what he said, that's not what he meant. He explained that it was in the context of the sarcasm and the jabbing that goes on in the clubhouse. April 27 is the 117th day of the year (118th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar, with 248 days remaining. ... Year 2007 (MMVII) is the current year, a common year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar and the AD/CE era in the 21st century. ...

The 2004 American League Championship Series was a Major League Baseball playoff series played between the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees. ...


Schilling responded in his blog by saying the following:

"So Gary Thorne says that Doug told him the blood was fake. Which even when he’s called out he can’t admit he lied. Doug never told Gary Thorne anything. Gary Thorne overheard something and then misreported what he overheard. Not only did he misreport it, he misinterpreted what he misreported."[33]

Gaming

Schilling formed a deep-rooted interest in the board wargame Advanced Squad Leader. Wargaming is the play of simulated military operations in the form of games known as wargames. ... Advanced Squad Leader 2nd Edition Rulebook Advanced Squad Leader (ASL) is a tactical-level board wargame that simulates actions of approximately company or battalion size in World War II. It is a detailed game system for two or more players (with solitaire play also possible). ...

ASL has become his constant companion on road trips, and every National League city is now his playground for baseball at night and ASL in the day. (All of which has become a bonanza for ASL players of his acquaintance, who are sometimes Curt's guests at stadiums around the country.)[34]

Schilling's disappointment at not being able to attend the ASL Oktoberfest (an annual game convention) led him to create his own, The ASL Open, which debuted the weekend of January 15, 1993 in Houston, Texas. The Open was financed out of his own pocket. Schilling also started his own amateur publication entitled Fire for Effect, a bi-monthly featuring "some of the ASL hobby's best writers".[35] is the 15th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. ... Year 1993 (MCMXCIII) was a common year starting on Friday (link will display full 1993 Gregorian calendar). ... “Houston” redirects here. ...


When his favorite game was sold along with Avalon Hill to Hasbro, Schilling founded the small gaming company Multi-Man Publishing to maintain ASL and other Avalon Hill titles. He also started a new, professional publication entitled ASL Journal and contributed articles, editorials, and game scenarios. Avalon Hill was a game company that specialized in wargames and strategic board games. ...

Schilling also plays EverQuest and EverQuest II, and has reviewed two of the game's many expansion packs for PC Gamer magazine. In 2006 Schilling created 38 Studios (originally named Green Monster Games).

Internet

He is an avid web communicator, feeling this is the best way to speak to the fans. Schilling has combined his fight against ALS with his love for EverQuest II, as the creators of the game have made Schilling a special online character. Between June 5, 2006 and June 7, 2006, fans were able to battle a virtual Curt Schilling in the game. Every time the virtual Schilling was defeated, Sony Online Entertainment donated $5 towards ALS research.[36] Later that year, it was announced he would form an online game production company called Green Monster Games, which, despite widespread rumor, was not named after the Fenway left field wall.[37] Schilling recently started a blog called 38pitches.com [38] in which he answers fan questions, documents his starts and refutes press coverage about him or the team that he believes is inaccurate.
