According to a report in the Orlando Sentinel, Curt Schilling wants to pitch for the Cubs…or the Tampa Bay Rays this season. Schilling has not decided if he will play or not this year after missing the entire 2008 season.
Bruce Miles of the Daily Herald asked the Cubs about a possible interest and he was told they have not spoken to Schilling but would be open to the idea.
The Cubs have enough pitching on paper to win their third straight division title, but as the old cliche goes there is no such thing in baseball as enough pitching. Would Curt Schilling, if healthy, be a fit for the Chicago Cubs?
Schilling is not “looking to be on an opening day roster” and has yet to decide whether he will make a comeback after shoulder surgery last June. Schilling said his shoulder is feeling fine and he will make a decision on his future in the next few weeks.
According to the Tribune on Saturday night, Jim Hendry did not shoot down the idea.
