We've been over this before, Schilling can't win 30, it's impossible, he won't get enough starts. the second half is different from the first half, players lose a little, pitchers get fatigued, their curves don't break as much ( except for Barry Zito's, but that's a story for another day), they lose a bit on their fastballs, etc. Now I'm not saying Schilling will flop in the second half because he didn't last season and he's too good, but he is human. I agree with Marc, Shill will win 23-25 ( I'm betting on 25 though), strikeout at least 350, walk 30 ( at the most), and have an ERA around 3.20. He's a lock for the NL Cy Young. He doesn't need to win 30, he's proven he's the most dominant pitcher in the game.
