Curt Schilling lies and exaggerates about a lot of things. Bloody socks, video game profits and etc. So, it can’t come as a surprised that he might have lied about the Red Sox telling him to do Roids.
The Red Sox did an investigation and found some holes in Schilling’s story.
“Completely baseless,” one source said. “It didn’t happen. The staff member did not say it, and he had no PED history whatsoever.”
Schilling told ESPNBoston.com there was no team probe into the incident.
“Schilling didn’t stand up enough [to investigators] for what he said happened,” one MLB source said. “Our investigation also discovered there was some [bad] history between Schilling and [Reinold].
“Investigators interviewed one witness to the conversation, who said he did not think in any way that [Reinold] said, ‘Hey, this is something you should consider.’ “

Of the Red Sox’ numerous offseason acquisitions, Mike Napoli may be the most intriguing.

Napoli has played first base in the past, and told reporters at the...

In just a matter of weeks, JetBlue Park in Fort Myers will be hosting real, live baseball games. For now? Well, the bean bag toss will have to suffice.

My theory is if you can’t clean a gun properly you shouldn’t own a gun. Take the case of Bryce Brentz who pulled a Plaxico on himself according to Deadspin.
#RedSox OF prospect Bryce Brentz shot himself in the leg while cleaning a handgun a few weeks ago. Not on ST roster as a result.

The main difference between 1B Carlos Delgado and Mo Vaughn was their longevity with the New York Mets. Vaughn played one full season (played well in the 2nd half of 2002) while Delgado was with the Mets for 3 full seasons. Delgado performed very well in the postseason in 2006. It is fair to say that Carlos Delgado did much more for the New York Mets than Mo Vaughn did.

According to Boston Globe writer Pete Abraham, John Henry talked to the media today in Spring Training, and laughed when asked if any players were signed for public relations purposes. Last month, former Red Sox manager Terry Francona released a book called "Francona: The Red Sox Years." In the book, he mentions that he was told by the front office that the Red Sox didn’t...
Count Mike Napoli as among those who were very surprised at the direction his contract negotiations turned this offseason.
Before taking a physical with the Red Sox, Napoli had no idea that he had a degenerative condition in his hip, and there’s a very good reason for that — he has never suffered a symptom. Nonetheless, over the course of the two months between reaching an initial...
Last week seemingly out of the blue, Curt Schilling went on The Herd with Colin Cowherd and revealed that a member of the Boston Red Sox organization urged him to use PEDs in 2008. Schilling did not reveal the name of the individual but did say that the he no longer worked for the organization.
Since then, Schilling has done subsequent interviews where he ruled out many individuals...
