Curt Schilling

Flying well under the radar, Schilling has rented a home in Ft. Myers for the next two months.  He had shoulder surgery last June and is working his way back into form.  By his own assessment, he will not be ready to pitch at the MLB level until mid-season.

While it's anyone's guess what Schilling still has in the tank, his heart and desire are unquestionable.  He'll be 42 years old heading into the 2009 season, and if he feels good enough about his stuff to return to the Bigs, Schilling will be available for the stretch drive.

Although he has thrown down roots in Boston and it's likely the Red Sox will be in the playoff hunt as well, is this the type of move Hendry makes to push the Cubs over the top?  Injuries and the effectiveness of the 5th starter would play a role in such a decision, but Schilling might be the kind of guy who could will the Cubs to the Series.
