Curt

This is just a cool picture of Curt Shilling. Found it on Yahoo! Sports. Its as if you know he is just about to throw a pea past that chump Angels hitter in the batters box. The Sox are entering a very critical point in the season as they are playing the next nine games against the Angels, Rangers and A’s, the best teams of the AL West and the main competitors in the Wild Card. The Red Sox have had a scorching August, reducing the lead of the Yankees from 10.5 games to just 4.5. If they can come out of the next nine games 6-3 and at the same time have the Yankees win just 4 or 5, I, and probably most in Red Sox Nation, would be very happy.

I am impressed. The Red Sox picked up Curt Schilling yesterday after three days of begging him to join the team and waive his no-trade clause in his contract with the Arizona Diamondbacks. I think the best part of this deal is the fact that it was done in complete “stealth mode” by the Red Sox front office and it totally blindsided the NY Yankees. I would love to have seen Steinbrenner’s face when the deal was announced, and eventually completed. Costanza, aka Brian Cashman, just did not get it done and once again Theo Epstein, the GM of the Red Sox, has landed the first punch with this one right between the eyes. Now, about that A-Rod to the Red Sox rumor…

Update: We all know how that ended and history will tell us that it was the best for both franchises.
