Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe wants Curt Schilling signed for 2008 right now, but I still think waiting is wise. As I said yesterday, Schilling started off 2006 the same way but his performance really diminished in the second half.
Troy Renck of the Denver Post doesn’t see the Red Sox expending any effort to acquire Todd Helton, which makes sense given the play of Kevin Youkilis and Mike Lowell. He does mention that Boston still likes Helton, so maybe talks would be revisited if Lowell leaves via free agency this winter. The Rockies, of course, should leave the door permanently open for Boston.
