Phillies Contacted Schilling (‘Maybe’)

Jan 5, 2007, 5:04 PM EDT

The Curt Schilling watch continues.

According to a source close to the situation, Schilling was contacted
by three teams shortly after filing for free agency: the Astros,
Diamondbacks and Phillies.

When asked Sunday evening on Comcast SportsNet whether he had been contacted by the Phillies, a coy Schilling said, “Maybe.”

But of course "source indicates that Schilling would prefer to remain in Boston."  I mean, who wouldn’t want to play for the defending World Series Champs with a payroll like that and a commitment to winning?  If Boston wants Schilling, he’s theirs.  On the bright side, at least it looks as if the Phils are being proactive.
