Schilling: I Was Encouraged To Use PEDs In '08

Schilling Shocker
In a blockbuster revelation, Red Sox hero Curt Schilling told ESPN Radio that former members of the Red Sox organization encouraged him to use performance-enhancing drugs when he was injured in 2008. [EDITOR's NOTE: In a TWEET, Schilling has said that the person in question, "...wasn't anyone in uniform, nor the baseball ops group"]. This shocking news comes in the midst of the controversy surrounding 12 MLB players named in connection with a Florida "wellness" clinic that distributed PEDs. Said Schilling: “At the end of my career, in 2008 when I got hurt, there was a conversation I was involved in that this was a potential path that I might want to pursue.” The 2004 and 2007 World Series star said of the encounter, “It caught me off guard to say the least, but that was an awkward situation.” Schilling also stated that the members of the Boston organization who confronted him with the idea "are no longer with the Red Sox." So far, there has been no response from the Red Sox.
