It’s not known whether ’08 will be his last season, but in ’07 Schilling, a three-time 20-game winner, though never a Cy Young winner, began to reinvent himself. Formerly a classic power pitcher — he threw 96-97 mph at the height of his career — he has now become a finesse pitcher who emphasizes off-speed pitches instead of relying on pure speed.Besides a Cy Young, the other accomplishment that has eluded Schilling is a no-hitter. On June 7, 2007, in Oakland, he had that chance. If only he hadn’t shaken off Jason Varitek. That’s when Shannon Stewart stroked a single to right to end the no-hit bid. “I should have listened to Jason,” said Schilling.

Schilling is a very opinionated person. He often states his case on his blog,, which has become a popular site among Red Sox fans.
