Yanksfan vs. Soxfan: Is Schill Rethinking Retirement?

"Even if I didn�t retire after next year I just can�t imagine jumping to the other side of this rivalry. Financially this game has taken care of me, so the next contract would be the same as this one in that we�d end up where we wanted to live and in a scenario we were familiar with.
