Curt Schilling On Sox Owner Henry: "He's A Dummy"

Curt, tell us what you really think. Red Sox legend Curt Schilling is nothing if not opinionated. Love him or not, he speaks his mind. And, today, on WEEI's Dennis & Callahan Morning Show, he did just that. In the midst of a discussion on the David Price acquisition, Schilling said this about Red Sox Principal Owner John Henry, "I think he's a dummy." Hello! And in atypical cryptic fashion, Schilling went on, "Not a fan. That’s a story for another time. There’ll be a time and a place for that whole story, but we’ll figure it out." Why exactly does Curt feel this way about Henry? Mostly, it's his perception that the NOG (New Ownership Group) is too meddlesome in baseball affairs. Said Curt, "The thing about it is this is a group of guys that meddle." And Schilling has a piece of advice for Dave Dombrowski on these matters, "I can see him [Dombrowski] saying, ‘You know what, you go sit in your office and count your money and I’ll fix the team.’" As readers of FenwayNation know, we are not big fans of the NOG either (although we like the three rings, obviously). Apparently, Curt is even less admiring than we are.
