Schill Stumps for McCain in Manchester

One voter tried to draw him out nonetheless, asking Schilling whether he would challenge Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass. Another called him "Sen. Schilling."

"I'm going to stick to winning one more World Series," he said to cheers in Red Sox-supporting New Hampshire.

Schilling did say the next president has to be ready to lead on taxes and what he repeatedly called "the war in the Middle East." He said McCain, a senator from Arizona, is best suited to deal with the challenges facing the country.

"We need a man or a woman," Schilling said before stopping to take New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton off the table. "We need a man leading a team of people that we believe in." -- 12.5.07, Schilling pitches for McCain's presidential bid

Santana Watching... Paint Dry: Twins Feel No Need to Make Trade

"If it's a Red Sox player, Red Sox timetable. That's how I would look at it. They're probably doing the same thing. We completely respect the position the Twins are in. It's their prerogative to handle this any way they see fit. I have no problem with the way they're handling this at all."
