Former Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling expresses her opipion on the entrence of PED abusing MLBers like Barry Bonds and Mark McGwire (New York Daily News):
Curt Schilling says Roger Clemens, Barry Bonds, Sammy Sosa and anyone else linked to steroids doesn’t belong in Cooperstown. Their records, the former Red Sox pitcher said during his Wednesday night appearance on “Conan,” should be expunged from the record books.
“If you cheated, you’re done,” said Schilling, who will join Clemens, Bonds and Sosa on the 2013 Baseball Hall of Fame ballot.
When the Daily News called Schilling to ask him about his comments, he declined to talk. “I’m not interested in talking about any of that stuff,” he said.
Here’s a question we’d like to ask Schilling: Who made you the steroid arbiter?
From 1988 to 1996, Schilling’s record was 52-52. After he turned 30, he went 164-94 from 1997 to 2007. That kind of jump in performance, especially during the years when Major League Baseball didn’t test for steroids and even the guys selling peanuts appeared to be on the juice, deserves some kind of explanation, doesn’t it?
Snarky of the Daily News to throw in the latter comment. You are publishing his comment aren't you? So don't be a jerk when the guy gives you his opinion.
Schilling delivers a basic moral stance: If you cheated you are out of the HOF. Life isn't always that simple, however that is one legitimate opinion.
