On his blog, Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling outlines some of his criteria for places he’d play ball next year:
The list of teams that our family has talked over, that we think would be a fit for next year, should we not come back, are pretty much teams in cities we agree would be ok for our last year, and teams I think have a legitimate shot at being in the post season and/or World Series. Teams we didn’t include aren’t for any one reason. There are a million little things that go into this from stadiums to school districts to travel to spring training to etc. etc. etc. but the list represents the teams after Boston that have some of the off the field things that are big to us, plus the potential to go into October next year.
I hope he stays in Boston, and some good schooling options there, and am glad he took the Yankees off the list, even with that Broad Prize thing and all…but I’m not sure how rigorous his schooling criteria can be if he left St. Louis, LA, and Philly on….though perhaps with LA there is a Schilling Animo in our future? Anyway someone introduce Curt to Schoolmatters.com or Greatschools.net and fast!
