Before I say anything, I am a Yankees fan and I haven't liked Curt Schilling for his whole career. Having said that, I respect him as a pitcher especially for his guts and big time performances. In no way am I saying anything about Curt Schilling the ballplayer in this article.
What I want to know is, how does Curt feel about Manny Ramirez testing positive for steroids. It was easy for Curt to come out bashing steroid users when they weren't teammates and arguably the most important part of a team that helped him win two world series rings in Boston.
When the Alex Rodriguez information came out and Major League Baseball said that they have 103 more names that will not be released, Curt Schilling said that he wanted the rest of the names revealed. I wonder if his opinions have changed since the results of Manny.
Is Manny a disgrace to the game? Does he deserve to be banned for life?
The reason I ask this is because throughout the cleansing process of the MLB, very few to no Red Sox have been accused of doing steroids. Many of the big names have been New York Yankees. So obviously being a member of the Boston Red Sox it made it easy for Curt Schilling to be the savior of the game and demand all users be brought to justice.
I haven't heard a peep from Schilling since the Manny situation surfaced. Is it because that maybe he might feel that some of his other teammates could have been using steroids such as David Ortiz?
In a previous article I wrote about how I believed that Ortiz has done them and that his HUGE drop off this year is a result of being off them. What if Ortiz's name were one of the 103 names found with AROD's? How would Curt Schilling feel about his 3 and 4 hitters of 2 of his World Series rings having used steroids.
The fact of the matter is that it's easy to say something should happen to other baseball players and not your own teammates. If Curt Schilling doesn't come out and start bashing Manny like he has to all the other users than what good is his word? Because apparently than in Curt's eyes it would only be wrong to use them if you were not a member of his team.
So come on Curt, start blogging or go on Sportscenter and do what you have done so many times before and throw another steroid user and this time one of your teammates to the wolves.
