Curt Schilling denied that he is attempting a comeback during a phone conversation with Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald on Sunday.
An earlier tweet seemingly hinted at the possibility of a return, but Schilling indicated that he was "just working out." Asked directly whether he was preparing himself for a comeback in the majors, the 43-year-old Schilling simply said, "nope." It's about as clear a denial as you can get.

Curt Schilling hinted at a possible comeback on his personal Twitter page on Sunday.

"Working out again…..not sure I can add anything to that other than I feel it in every fiber of my being, every step I take…," Schilling wrote. It doesn't necessarily mean anything, but he's clearly self-aware enough to know that writing those words would get people buzzing. Schilling, who turned 43 in November, announced his retirement in March of 2009 after missing the entire 2008 season following shoulder surgery. He hasn't appeared in a major league game since Game 2 of the 2007 World Series.

Curt Schilling announced Monday that he's retiring, writing on his blog that "this party has officially ended."

Schilling talked last month about trying to come back after missing all of last season following shoulder surgery, but decided to call it quits after 20 seasons and 216 wins. Schilling will be an interesting Hall of Fame case, because his win total is far below the typical threshold for enshrinement while his postseason performance is among the best in baseball history. He made six All-Star teams, pitched in four World Series, finished second in the Cy Young balloting in each of his three 20-win seasons and ranks 15th all time with 3,116 strikeouts.

Curt Schilling indicated that he could soon make a decision on whether to attempt a comeback during the 2009 season.

"I'm hemming and hawing right now," he said. "I'll make a decision in the next couple of weeks." Schilling did mention a couple of possible destinations if he did attempt a return. "The challenge would be in a place like Tampa Bay or Chicago," he said, presumably referring to the Cubs and their long World Series drought.

Curt Schilling said Monday that he'd consider pitching for the Diamondbacks next season.

Schilling hasn't decided whether he'll pitch at all in 2009 and would likely only be available in the second half anyway following shoulder surgery. "If I come back and play, it will be for half of a season," Schilling said. "It will be for a contending team. Arizona is absolutely one of those teams I would consider. I’ll have my choice and I’ll do it in a way that hopefully will ensure that I’ll be pitching for a team with a chance to get to October because I’ve always felt like I’m decent in October and I perform pretty well and I would like to get back on that stage."

Dr. Craig Morgan said Wednesday that Curt Schilling would have been ready to pitch in the playoffs if the Red Sox had let him undergo offseason surgery on his injured shoulder.

"If the [team] would have let me do the surgery in January, he'd probably be pitching in the playoffs now," Morgan said. Instead, Schilling underwent surgery in June and is now debating whether or not to retire despite Morgan describing his shoulder as "phenomenal."

Curt Schilling said Monday that he'd retire if he had to make a decision now, but is considering coming back from shoulder surgery to pitch the second half of next season.

"I won't come back for a full season, that much I know," Schilling said. "If I do decide to come back I would work to the point I was ready and somewhere around May 1 let the teams know I wanted to pitch the second half. I'd obviously need to spend June in the minor leagues building it all back up and then hopefully come back and help a team in contention win a World Series. All of this is predicated with the fact that I am completely healthy and able to pitch like I did prior to breaking my shoulder early in 2007. If I had to make that decision today, yes, I'd retire."

Curt Schilling wrote in his blog Friday that "the pendulum is swinging very heavily in the direction of it just being over."

"I’ve never sat around and not gotten ready to head to Florida, well not in 23 or so years anyway, so to me that will likely be the last real test for me and whether or not I want to put the time and effort into getting after it one more time," he wrote.

Curt Schilling revealed Tuesday that he had a physical altercation with Manny Ramirez in 2005.

According to Schilling, they "had to be broken up" after Ramirez took offense to Schilling commenting on his sitting out a game when the Red Sox's outfield was thin due to a Trot Nixon injury. "When you look at what happened and how it went down, and how much effort was expended to make sure that Manny wasn't here at the end of the trading deadline, you have to kind of trust the fact that it wasn't working," Schilling said. Meanwhile, Ramirez is hitting .615 with two homers and five RBI through three games with the Dodgers.

Curt Schilling (shoulder surgery) said Monday that he hasn't decided whether to try to play baseball again.

He said Monday that he's started to rehab his shoulder, but that it will be at least five weeks before he must decide whether to try to return for 2009. Schilling's arm was in a sling and he said it was more sore than he expected it to be.

Curt Schilling (shoulder surgery) said on WEEI on Wednesday that he hasn't ruled out a return to the major leagues.

"If I want to pitch again I have a chance to, that's the bottom line," said Schilling. He guessed he had about four months of rehab in front of him before he could pick up a baseball, and said he would decide then whether to return. "If I come out of rehab and I'm throwing 84 miles per hour, it's over," he said.

No major rotator cuff damage was found during Curt Schilling's shoulder surgery on Monday, but he did have his labrum repaired along with his biceps tendon injury.

"The status of the rotator cuff was much better than was predicted," Dr. Craig Morgan said. "He did have disease in the biceps tendon, that was his major problem. We transferred the biceps tendon." Schilling will need about four months off before he can resume throwing. He has yet to comment on whether he plans to attempt a comeback in 2009.

Curt Schilling told WEEI that he'll have surgery on his right shoulder on Monday, and that his season - and possibly career - is over.

The 41-year-old wasn't sure what type of surgery he'd be undergoing, and said that would be figured out on Monday. He left open the possibility that he'd be able to pitch again next season, but said "there's a decent chance that I have thrown my last pitch, forever." He had been rehabbing shoulder and biceps injuries, but hit a setback while throwing before last Friday's game.

Curt Schilling will have his right shoulder examined tomorrow in Boston by Dr. Thomas Gill.

According to Terry Francona, Schilling has reached a "plateau" in his comeback and has been told to shut it down for a while. "It's been a frustrating week for him," Francona said. Besides the whole shoulder thing, Schilling's paladin recently got owned by a level 34 ogre.

Curt Schilling was told to take a few days off after a "sluggish" bullpen session on Friday.

Manager Terry Francona said it wasn't one of his better days, but didn't elaborate. He reportedly sidestepped questions again today, and the team is going to wait another day or two before deciding when he'll throw next. He seems to have hit a setback in his recovery.
