After several weeks of speculation and “Will he? or Won’t he?” interviews, 38pitches.com founder made it official on HBO’s Joe Buck Live this week: No senate run for Schilling.

Before Schilling made his no-run decision final, he made it clear to Boston radio listeners that if he were in, he was in to win.  He wouldn’t be cowed by pol prognosticators who thought he had no shot. 

The only thing that could prevent him was his family.  And in the end, the time in which his run would take him away from his family was the deciding factor.

“I can’t commit the time,” said Schilling to WEEI’s Dennis and Callahan on Thursday morning.  “If I wasn’t going to be able to be ‘all-in’ from a commitment stand point, then there was absolutely no way I was going to do it.  Maybe it’s naïve or ignorance, whatever you want to call it, but I was going in thinking I could actually win this thing and what that would mean.
