Schill-Lacked Again!

Another off-season and another possible starting pitcher that may return to the Phils will be staying put. After being teased with his presence here in Philadelphia on Sunday, prior to the Eagles beating by the Cowboys, Phillies faithful were hopeful that the bad blood between Curt Schilling and the Phillies organization was over and he would finish his career were he started.

Well once again reality and disappointment have set in and it looks as if the curse that reigns heavily over the sports franchises in Philadelphia has yet again decided to rear its ugly head. The most touted pitcher that could possibly be back taking the mound at Citizens Bank Park is NO MAS!

Curt Schilling and the Red Sox appear ready to announce a one-year deal with incentives to return him to Boston for one final season.

ESPN.com reported on Tuesday that Schilling and the team have reached agreement on an $8 million base salary with an additional $2 million in incentives. The deal is pending a physical on the right-hander, who will turn 41 on Nov. 14.

And this is another painful reminder of the why being a sports fan in Philadelphia is so tough.
