Curt Schilling took to his Twitter account and not surprisingly said something stupid (via HardballTalk)…
Best modern day hitter, Manny RH Barry LH when they cheated, Gonzo LH Pujols RH of non cheaters
It is actually quite amazing how many dumb things Schilling can say in 140 characters or less. Manny cheated. Bonds cheated. Yes. But even if we drop Bonds from consideration, there are still 50 left-handed batters in recent decades that are better than Luis Gonzalez. Not to mention Gonzalez is consistently at the top of many lists of players that are suspected users of Performance Enhancing Drugs (PEDs).
But most importantly, by saying Manny Ramirez “cheated,” Captain Blowhard is basically saying that the 2004 and 2007 Red Sox cheated their way to two World Series titles. Two teams that Schilling played for.
We doubt Schilling wants those two titles tainted on his already weak Hall-of-Fame application.
