Curt Schilling: Aspects of my personality encouraged me to speak to the media so I could get some attention.

Schilling told Colin Cowherd

Where is a goddamn meteor when you need one? 10 will get you 20 the conversation either never happened or was about Advil.

They shouldn't have encouraged him to take PED's (if they did) and Cowherd also shouldn't have encouraged him to open his mouth in public again (which he did).

Schilling gets to got to the new Ty Cobb wing of the HoF, reserved for great players who absolutely deserve to be there for their game play, but who are total assholes.

What kind of radio talker would Cowherd be if he wasn't encouraging Schilling to flap his gums?

Dead. Which is how I'd like him best.

Local media take on this seems to be "yes it happened, it was reported, MLB investigated, a couple of people (yet to be identified) were let go by the Red Sox, and it's old news." I guess Cowherd was out of ideas for a topic, so he dredged this one up from the bottom of the Muddy River. (For those unfamiliar with the geography of Boston, the Muddy River flows through what is called "The Fenway", which is part of the chain of green space through the city. Yes, Fenway is derived from the word 'fen' which is another word for swamp.)

Curt Schilling's claim in 2008 that a member of the team's medical staff raised the possibility of treating his injured shoulder with a performance-enhancing drug was "completely baseless," investigations conducted by both the Boston Red Sox and Major League Baseball concluded, according to two baseball sources with direct knowledge of the investigations.

He slandered the former Red Sox employees, Alex Rodriguez and Ryan Braun. Hope he has a good attorney.
