Curt Schilling is discussing PEDs again. This time, the former Boston Red Sox pitcher claims PEDs were suggested to him when he was winding down his career in Major League Baseball. According to a report from Thursday morning (Feb. 7), Schilling had some very interesting things to say about the Red Sox organization.
One of the claims that the former pitcher makes is that the organization "encouraged him to consider taking performance-enhancing drugs." Those are very bold accusations that Schilling is leveling, but he goes on to say that four different members of the organization brought up PEDs to him. He did reveal that these were former members, though, so he obviously isn't targeting any current employees with these accusations.
During his time in MLB, Schilling played 20 seasons spread out over five teams. He finished up his career in Boston, retiring at the end of the 2008 season when his body started giving out. He won 216 games, was named an All-Star six times, and pitched in the World Series four times during his career. Schilling won rings with the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2001 and the Red Sox in 2004 and 2007.
It's the early stages of Curt Schilling mentioning PEDs and suggesting that the Boston Red Sox were trying to get him to use them. The story is going to develop further from here and fans will probably be interested to see what the organization has to say about these claims.
