Poor Curt Schilling

First, he gets nothin’ but goose eggs on Jeopardy! Then he gets a rude awakening on his 40th birthday by Dennis and Callahan, who harass him about … getting goose eggs on Jeopardy!

Curt does say that he’s excited about Matsuzaka’s potential arrival (but not enough to accept a pay cut or give up his Opening Day slot), and that he thinks the Sox might go after Zito or Schmidt anyway. He also repeats his season-end assertion that the Sox’ ownership is willing to expand the payroll this season, perhaps even to go beyond the luxury tax threshold.

Good stuff. Thanks, Lockland.

  • and Zito and Schmidt? Holy crap, did someone fall and hit their head on the steps at Fenway. Namely, eveyone who works in the front office? I will say this, if that were to ever come to fruition, that’s one heck of a rotation, and Boras would officially be in bed with the Red Sox. Let the theories fly if that happened.

  • I’d take Zito since we’d no longer be relying upon him alone to be the future ace. Still wouldn’t take Schmidt, except for dirt cheap.
    For the record, I just can’t see the Sox going after those guys. They need bullpen and lineup help now…

  • I’m going to go on the record right now as saying that with the addition of another pitcher of that caliber, even Mulder, and the addition of JD Drew, I’m absolutely one hundred percent fine with the lineup. Keep Gonzales, start Pedroia, and keep Papelbon in the pen. That rotation would be absolutely filthy on paper, and very hard to beat on the field. Good defense and good pitching – Wins every single time.

  • I watched that Jeopardy episode, it was last Thursday I think. He was pretty bad..

  • Dennis and Callahan ribbed him on missing the “San Francisco treat,” playing the clip when they asked him what he’d be having for dinner tonight.
    I grimaced at the part where he had to think of the archaic British monetary unit that equaled 1/20 of a pound (a shilling, of course). He barely squeaked the answer out in time.

  • Oh ya, hahaha, I did remember that now. I thought he was kind of just being “are you kidding me?” when he answered the “shilling” answer. It was actually pretty amusing, though I was hoping he would do more.. he didn’t just get a zero, but he was mostly passive the entire time..

  • Well it’s a good thing he can throw the rock, for his sake.

  • Does anyone know who Curt’s favorite team mate is?
