Ultimately Schilling engineered a package so unorthodox few agents would have sought it: a two-year, $27.5 million extension, with a sweetener--if he helped the Red Sox win a World Series, he would be given a $2 million salary bump, plus an extra year at $13 million. The league prohibits paying a single player a bonus based on a team's overall standing, but baseball officials approved it nonetheless. "It had never been done before," Schilling says, "but I knew what they wanted me there for. And if I delivered, I deserved it. If I didn't, I didn't."

After reading this it made me think that if Schilling had an agent, he would not have had the W.S. sweetener and may not have gotten the unique surgery. Anyway, I really don't care it was just a thought.

Schilling was legendary back in 2004. I got to sit behind home plate versus the Rangers that season and I have no clue how anyone could ever hit Schilling's split. Every hardcore fan needs to sit behind the plate to really appreciate just how sick these players are. Man, I want that pitcher back for a two months!
