Sure he's a loudmouth and he speaks his mind, not trying trying to be a jerk or anything it's just in my opinion that Schill wouldn't criticize the Sox for injuring his arm and I don't think we'd pressure him into pitching. Remember people just an opinion not trying to start a war or make a guy mad.
    Actually, he wanted to have the season ending surgery (because that is likely in his best interest), and was later talked into Rehab. Although,I'm sure he doesn't want to not pitch.

      I believe he wasn't technically a FA, but had been selected by the Phillies in the Rule 5 draft and then returned. In the Rule 5, if a player isn't going to be on the selecting clubs active roster, they have to offer him back to his former team.

      Anyway, Holdzkom is 26, has never pitched in the majors, and has played in the Florida and Chicago Cubs systems before playing in the Red Sox system in 2007. He's been almost exclusively a reliver in his career, and has a career ERA of 2.71 in 177 minor league games (269 IP).

      Not sure why, but 2006 (at age 24) was his first taste of AA ball. That seems kinda slow. In 2007 for the Sox, he pitched in AA (30 G, 3.47 ERA) and AAA (12 G, 1.59 ERA).

      Not sure what he throws, but he's a decent sized guy (listed at 6'4", 240 lbs).

        Personally, I think everyone can put the whole "is Schilling going to pitch this year" junk to bed. He's not going to pitch barring a miracle. When's the last time you saw someone blow out his shoulder, and come back by the All Star Break? Never! There's no way he would have been back if he had the surgery, and the Sox knew that, so they told him not to have the surgery. Why not? Either way it doesn't really effect anything. He's not coming back this year. Everyone needs to get used to the idea of this WHOLE season without Schilling. He's not pitching for us.

            If Schilling REALLY wanted the surgery and not the rehab, he could have just retired and had the surgery. Then he could have come back as a FA next year if things went well.
            The crux of the problem was the Schilling seemed to want to have the surgery and have the Bosox pay him, too. I'm sure that he could have had the surgery under contract, but the team probably would have done all they could to void the deal in that circumstance. Who knows if they would have succeeded.
            Schilling should be a very wealthy man who could have forfeited this year's money without jeopardizing his golden years. Maybe he was counting on his salary as capital for his gaming company?
