Schilling does not expect HOF election
|01.09.13 at 2:41 am ET|
Former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling, eligible for the Hall of Fame for the first time this year, on Wednesday indicated he does not expect to be elected, and he offered his thoughts on which players should be chosen. Results of the balloting will be announced Wednesday afternoon.
Tweeted Schilling: Being honest, anything over 35% would be stunning. This ballot should be [Dale] Murphy, [Tim] Raines, [Jeff] Bagwell, [Craig] Biggo imo.
Schilling posted a 216-146 record with a 3.46 ERA and 3,116 strikeouts in 20 big league seasons with the Orioles, Astros, Phillies, Diamondbacks and Red Sox. He was known for coming up big in the postseason, going 11-2 with a 2.23 ERA in 19 games, including a 4-1 mark with a 2.06 ERA in four World Series games. He famously won Game 6 of the 2004 ALCS against the Yankees in the “bloody sock” game en route to helping the Sox win their first title since 1918.
