    Re: Schilling was encouraged to use PEDs

    In response to djcbuffum's comment:

    (1) Schilling said it was neither a person in uniform (player, manager or coach), nor someone from baseball operations (management, medical).  That suggests that this person is a clubhouse employee or something, and doing a little drug-dealing on the side; that this wasn't a organizational decision or strategy.  On the other hand, his description of the openness of the offer suggests that there was a "see-no-evil" ethos in the clubhouse among the players and probably coaches and managers too.  

     

    (2) Schilling's gamble on his video game company is only troubling because he lost millions of taxpayer dollars.  The government of Rhode Island secured the loans to his company, and he can't pay them back.  I would feel bad for him, but his "I built that" attitude makes him seem unrepentant.  I'd like to see a little humility and perhaps a recognition that he owes something to the taxpayers, even if he can't pay.

    It says:  Schilling has so far not responded to a request to be further interviewed. But he responded to a Twitter user who asked why he wouldn’t expose somebody who suggested he use drugs banned by Major League Baseball.

    “Because outing the person would not do anything for anyone. It wasn't anyone in uniform, nor the baseball ops group,” Schilling wrote.

    We know it can't be true.

     

    kimsaythis has told us for years that the only cheats in baseball are the Yankees.



    I was thinking the same thing.

    It was probably John Henry.  He paid Curt 8 million dollars to throw 0 pitches in 2008.  Curt should have taken the offer.
