To quote Fox News commentator Bill O'Reilly, Curt Schilling should just "shut up!" I'm with him on the fact that Roger Clemens used steroids, but with all of this "holier than art thou" garbage, Schilling needs to pipe down.
Why do I bring this up with Schilling? Well for one thing he is as annoying as all get out. Secondly, somebody (namely Schilling) needs to for once and for all tell me what Red Sox trainers shot into Schilling's leg that enabled him to go out and pitch Game 6 of the 2004 ALCS on that bum ankle. Was it the same stuff Brett Favre uses to keep his consecutive starts streak going on every Sunday when his arm is completely numb on Thursday?
Additionally I have to wonder did Schilling return to the Boston Red Sox for below his market value for one year because he loved Boston or was it because the Red Sox blackmailed him into coming back because George Mitchell who is on their board of directors told him if he were to come back that he would indeed cover Schilling's butt on this steroid issue.
One could also make the case that Mitchell's connection to the Red Sox made him overlook some of the more prominent recent Red Sox, including Schilling, David Ortiz, Jason Varitek and Nomar Garciapara. In any event, come on Curt you seem to be quite the talker, so tell us all what you had injected into your leg before that October night in 2004 that allowed you to pitch on a bum ankle? Must be a pretty difficult question to answer for a guy that just won't shut up.
