Schilling Considering Joining D-Rays in ’08

In his regular show on WEEI, Curt Schilling said he’d be interested in joining the D-Rays and their two young pitchers, Scott Kazmir and James Shields.

“It’s one of those situations you’d certainly have to look at. Knowing that I’m probably going to spend one more year playing, if circumstances happen and things happen and they made some moves that were positive, I’d love nothing more than to finish my career working on a pitching staff where I know that there are young guys that are going to be positively impacted by me being around [after] I was gone. I enjoy that. I love working and talking and being around young pitchers.”

Although Schilling joining the D-Rays seems quite silly, they could make a very solid push by spending money. As of the start of the season, Tampa’s payroll was at $24 million and considering Schilling’s current contract is for $13 million now, Tampa probably couldn’t afford him. But say Tampa did get Schilling and also added bullpen help to the tune of $15 million. Maybe a closer, setup and middle relief man to sure up the worst bullpen in the majors. It would be like six nerdy bothers being protected by one big brother. But in the end, the big bro protects them all and makes them all tougher. But with the D-Rays young bats and 2 young stud arms, there would be a solid future.

This is all baseball fantasy. The fantasy that drives the hot stove every year. It’s fun to imagine though a Tampa team that competes.
