Free Agent Filings

Veteran right-hander Curt Schilling -- fresh off helping the Red Sox win their second World Series in four years -- became the first core member of the championship club to file for free agency.

Right-hander Matt Clement, who didn't pitch in 2007 because of extensive shoulder surgery, also filed for free agency. So did reserves Eric Hinske and Bobby Kielty, the latter of whom hit a crucial home run in the Game 4 World Series clincher against the Rockies.

World Series MVP Mike Lowell will also be a free agent and is expected to file in the next few days.

"I would love to be able to come back and pitch one last season and win a World Series and walk away," said Schilling, who will represent himself in negotiations.

Schilling is seeking a one year deal at his current salary, $13 Million.
