Good news (maybe) for Boston fans: 40-year-old starting pitcher Curt Schilling has signed a one-year deal to remain a Red Sox. A Red Sock? A Red Stocking!
[Schilling and the Sox] have reached an agreement on a one-year deal worth about $8 million in base salary and millions more in potential incentives, ESPN The Magazine's Buster Olney reports. The agreement is pending Schilling, 40, passing a physical exam.
The deal contains $3 million in performance bonuses based on innings pitched and $2 million based on weight clauses.
Weight clauses? Look out. Bartolo Colon got rich off those.
Anyway, I, for one, look forward to one more season from the reclusive Schilling. Asperger's can be paralyzing condition, and it's nice to see heroes like #38 tackle it head-on.
