In the latest round of “he said / they said”, “he did it / no I didn’t”, Major League Baseball and the Boston Red Sox concluded an investigation into Curt Schillings comments earlier this week that the Red Sox organization encouraged him to take PED’s in 2008 while recovering from injury.  Two sources close to these investigations have told ESPNBoston.com writer Gordon Edes that Schilling’s claims were found to be “completely baseless”. Schilling fired back that this was just more cover up, implying that there were other players that heard the conversation (in 2008) and that he isn’t sure who they interviewed to come to this conclusion. Curt Schilling, who has remained in the spotlight since retirement, both as a ESPN commentator, and a failed businessman as his video game firm is currently going through a significant bankruptcy protection to include $75M in a guaranteed loan from the state of Rhode Island that are in default.  During his active playing days, he was also summoned by Congress in 2005 to testify in the hearings on Steroids, which infamously led to stars like Rafael Palmeiro and Mark McGwire either denying, or refusing to discuss the issue, both of which were later found to have used PEDs in some form or another.  Schilling remains adamant that he never used any PED’s during his career. And Schilling is likely to stay in the headlines in the years to come, as he will appeared on his first Hall of Fame ballot this year, garnering 38.8% of the vote, but was mixed in discussions with the likes of Sammy Sosa, Barry Bonds, and Roger Clemens, who all also first appeared on the ballot this year, and have been lighning rods for discussion of modern Hall of Fame credentials. -Dave (@lhd_on_sports) Follow us on Twitter @rbts_sk The post MLB and Red Sox call Schilling claims “baseless” appeared first on Reading Between The Seams.
