According to Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Brewers GM Doug Melvin will place a call to Curt Schilling‘s agent. Wait – I thought Schilling represented himself?
Schilling and/or his agent made contact with three teams today, and none of them were the Red Sox. He told the three teams that he still wanted to remain in Boston if possible and he still wants only a one-year deal. Any guesses as to which three teams talked to Schilling today? How about the Phillies, Mets, and Cardinals?
The Brewers could fit Schilling into the budget, if they let Cordero and Linebrink walk. Extra incentive to let the pair of relievers depart is that they’re Type As. Then again, so is Schilling.
