Bloody sock and blogging enthusiast Curt Schilling seems pretty keen on the idea of pitching for the Cubs. The 42-year-old pitcher told the Orlando Sentinel that the chance of breaking a 101-year title drought could lure him back to the mound for one season.

Schilling, who missed the 2008 season with a shoulder injury, indicated he wants to go to a contender.

The challenge would be in a place like Tampa Bay or Chicago, he said.

Schilling is not expecting to be on any opening day rosters and is still mulling over the decision to return.

I’m hemming and hawing right now, he said. I’ll make a decision in the next couple of weeks.

So, Cubs fans: Would you like to see Schilling come to Wrigley? Or should he stick to updating his blog?
