Curt Schilling will make it to the Hall of Fame

Now, whether or not you like Curt for his off-field and post-playing-career antics, you can’t argue that he doesn’t deserve to be in the Hall of Fame. He highly likely gets into the Hall next year on his final year on the ballot. He may not have won a CY Young award, but he was a 6-time All-Star, 2-time postseason MVP, and won 2 World Series. He helped the Red Sox break their Bambino Curse.

He helped the Dbacks make history in their 01′ World Series Win. He played with Arizona for 4 years. His most famous years were with the Phillies and Red Sox. Yet, he could enter the Hall of Fame with a Dbacks hat. It’s doubtful but it’s not like it would be unexpected. One could say his best years in the MLB were with the Dbacks. He made the All-Star team twice, won the World Series, and was a part of one of the most dominant duos in recent baseball history.

Curt got 71.7% of the vote in 2021. He should get the final 3.3% to make it into the Hall next year. It will be a happy time for Dbacks fans as this will be the second prominent player to have played a lot of years with the team and make it into the Hall of Fame. I still like Curt and think he deserves to make it to the Hall of Fame.

Whether it’s by the voters or the Veteran’s committee, Curt will be in the Hall someday. Hopefully, he’s wearing a Dbacks but if not, I’m still thankful and proud that he was a Diamondbacks player during his outstanding career.
