Dear Mr. Schilling...
Today you made an attempt to insult the Yankees with a snide comment. A very empty insult too with no real meaning behind it.
You said, in a press conference:
"Where I'm going to play beyond 2007? I hope it's Boston, but I will go out and find a home to pitch, I hope it's here, but there's also that possibility [of pitching elsewhere]. It would not be to New York."
Now why you decided to single out the Yankees organization is beyond me. Oh wait, now I understand.
2001 All-Star Game, one of our former players hit a home runoff you and then he did it again, but this time in the World Series. Or could it be in the playoffs when you said that there is no better sound than having 50,000 Yankees fans "shut the hell up", only to be humiliated. Perhaps it was your return after your surgery to stitch up that papercut and, again, humiliated, only this time in front of your home crowd.
But to say that you don't want to pitch in New York brings a tear to my eye. A tear of pain in my sides from laughing to hard.
We don't want to see you in pinstripes, you useless to us. We were never going to sign you or had any intention to sign you.
So you see, saying that you don't want to pitch in New York is kinda, well, would have never happened anyway.
The Red Sox were once known as "Idiots", but you, you're the lone idiot. I would have expected you to say something as like any other ball player would, but you decided to take at stab at the Empire.
The 2007 season is getting close, and trust me, you will once again be humiliated. For you see, there is nothing sweeter than having an old pitcher with a bum ankle 'shut the hell up'.

Glad to have you renting space in China...
Is it a problem that I am a Cubs fan??

He said New York. That means he won't be on the mound for the Mets either - despite his age now qualifies him for their squad.

CHAD: Schill meant the Yankees. He has history with us.

Listening to (or reading) Yankees' fans bantering is like listening to Ohio State fans and their idiotic rampages.
Not that I like Shilling - honestly the whole thing is stupid, but "The Empire???" get over yourselves.

Hey CH, first off, your Red Sox buddies coined the "Evil Empire" term. We just take it for granted just like the Packers and "cheeseheads".
Second, if you are tired of reading our "bantering" hit the little red "X" on your browser, and *poof* gone.
Third, I don't care about Ohio State.

Well said, Steve... The fact that Schilling thinks we want another "Kevin Brown" on our team is beyond me.
I think secretly though, Schilling wishes he was good enough to be sought after by the Yankees...therefore he makes these embarrasing remarks.

Kevin Brown, hmmm, wasn't he that old un-successful pitcher the Yankees signed a couple years ago?
Thanks for agreeing with me Zach!
