Former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling, an outspoken conservative, says he plans to run for president several cycles from now.

 “I am going to run, soon,” Schilling wrote in a Facebook post, explaining that he'll run for a state office in Massachusetts first, and then launch a presidential bid in eight years -- “or four [years], if by some amazing illegal event this country elects another Clinton."
