Schilling Calls Out PED Users

Curt Schilling posted a long response to the Mitchell Report today on his blog. As I said earlier he is never short on opinions and he lives up to the hype again. He addresses Canseco, Bonds, and Clemens. Here is his opinion on Clemens which is sure to grab headlines: “From that point on(1997) the numbers were attained through using PED’s. Just like I stated about Jose, if that is the case with Roger, the 4 Cy Youngs should go to the rightful winners and the numbers should go away if he cannot refute the accusations.” Schilling is also takes on the current state of baseball by writing: “The sport needs fixing. It’s become clear that testing has to involve an outside party at some point and that the MLBPA and MLB need to find common ground on testing that allows investigation for probable cause instead of only relying on positive tests.” I couldn’t agree with him more. It is nice to see someone try to move the sport forward instead of doing everything to protect the status quo.
