Schilling says Bosox wanted him to use PEDs

    Do you believe him? Steroids are a very broad category (I had to use them for a jaw problem) so there is quite a bit of wiggle room for the management and Schilling is a glory hound.

    He must have read the SJ novel.

    First define 'PED,' because there are plenty of medically-prescribed, doctor-approved treatments/pharmaceuticals.

    I have a very hard time believing that 'Red Sox officials' directly suggested he take banned substances; even if they wanted him to, no chance they'd discuss it directly, it's a conversation that would have gone through a third party.

    Also, if (as he claims) there were numerous witnesses to the conversation, let's hear from another witness.

    Well, we know the Red Sox wanted to have a "sexier" team... :D

    Do I believe him?

    I don't think he just made this up. I also think there is probably a big difference between what Schilling remembers being said and what the team official in question probably said.

    There's no doubt in my mind that Schilling would say literally anything, about literally anybody, if it meant getting 10 more seconds of any kind of attention being paid to him.

    Wouldn't surprise me a bit if someone in the organization suggested to him he may want to consider using PEDs. I also don't care.

    I kind of agree with that.

    I could also see someone coming up to Schilling and saying something to the effect of, "You need to do whatever you have to to stay healthy and stay on the field." and have him translate that with his tiny little brain into, "You must take steroids or HGH."

    Or it's all bullshit and Schilling wanted some attention again.

    I always thought Schilling was on the stuff anyway. OK, time to get my knuckles rapped by OOP.

    he's an obnoxious, self absorbed, duplicitous douche bag. Why should he be believed without evidence? How much does Mr Republican TeaBagger owe the government?
