I hate to say it

but if I were Theo and I had to make a decision right now, I don't think I would re-sign Schilling. I mean, you've got Beckett who's a franchise player, Wakefield who is still strong, and Dice-K who isn't going anywhere, regardless of what Phantom thinks. Then you might very well have a rehabbed Matt Clement. And then Lester and Buchholz...I'm thinking it's time for the future.

However, there's a lot of baseball left. Given the way Detroit and Seattle are playing, I'd say we've almost got a lock on post-season, and I'm speaking mathematically, not emotionally. And if Schilling is a significant player in the post-season (think bloodstained sock), then Theo is going to have some very hard decisions, come November.

(Can we not even talk about the possibility of A-Rod instead of Mike Lowell?! Not an option, Theo. Just Do. Not. Go. There.)

Ahem. And now what do you have to say about Dice-K?
