It kind of makes sense that with Curt Schilling pitching only every fifth day, he would then have four days left over for complaining. First on his list is Barry Bonds. When asked on WEEI's "Dennis and Callahan" radio show if he thinks Bonds' home run totals are tainted, Schilling said:
Oh yeah. I would think so. I mean, he admitted that he used steroids," said Schilling, according to the Boston Globe. "I mean, there's no gray area. He admitted to cheating on his wife, cheating on his taxes, and cheating on the game, so I think the reaction around the league, the game, being what it is, in the case of what people think. Hank Aaron not being there. The commissioner [Bud Selig] trying to figure out where to be. It's sad.
"And I don't care that he's black, or green, or purple, or yellow, or whatever. It's unfortunate . . . there's good people and bad people. It's unfortunate that it's happening the way it's happening."
If you're wondering what a green Barry Bonds might look like, by the way, here it is.
Meanwhile, Schilling is making very sure not to insult another rumored steroids user, Roger Clemens. Clarifying remarks he made on Monday about Clemens signing with the Yankees ("We don't need him,") Schilling said on Tuesday on his blog, "If you read any of the sports writers with integrity, the guys that printed the ENTIRE quote I gave last night, I thought it was clear. Roger Clemens coming to Boston was something none of us in the clubhouse had any control over." Oh, and somehow it's all Dan Shaughnessy's fault.
