300 wins is the Gold Standard for a starting pitcher in the Hall of Fame. Schilling is basically one season past 200 wins.
Also, didn't he own Rhode Island something like $75 million?

You sound butt hurt. How about if we start a Hall Of Douches .. he can be part
of the first induction class along with Pete " I Didn't Know She Was 14 " Rose.
ps: Isn't his last name spelled Schilling ?

For reasons that have nothing to do with the game. Today's baseball writers are leftists first and baseball writers second.
To whoever said Schilling's stats come up short - your knowledge of the game is sorely lacking.
Schilling stands 15th all-time in career strikeouts and 8th all-time in career strikeouts to walks ratio. Critics will look at his career wins, 216, and say it wasn't enough, while ignoring that this is good for 86th place all-time, that he got those wins in the era of the relief specialist, and that several HOFers who played in the era of starters going the distance have fewer wins and strikeouts. And that his career losses, 146, stands in 179th place. That is a differential of 93+.
I think he gets in eventually. Possibly even the 2021 class.

Nice accomplishments but his career record comes up short. If I had a vote he would not get it.

His post baseball career has alienated a lot of people. He has come out with a lot of radical stuff.

Baseball writers, well, most press folks, are liberal democrats, and Schilling doesn't fit their narrative politically. So, it hurts him in voting. That being said, his record is borderline HOF anyway.
he's a conservative, a trump supporter, and has made controversial political statements.
he was 5% short this year. he has two more chances to get there by voting. otherwise the veterans committee will have to vote him in
