"TO BAD THE OLDE TOWN TEAM IS NOT ON THE METS INTER-LEAGUE SCHEDULE"
Senator Al and Titan Tommy took Red Sox Motor Mouth, Curt Schilling and Manson family member Johnny Damon to the woodshed over their comments about steroid testing in baseball. I love the quote from Senator Al who in escance states, Schillings a good guy, but let me tell how much of an asshole he is:
I like Curt, but he's got a lot of opinions, sometimes bizarre," Leiter said. "He's an intelligent guy, but my frustration with Curt and other players like Curt is that they're never involved. If Curt would actually go and sit in the [union] meetings and hear and listen and understand truly how it works, he would have never said that.
"What Curt is getting at is inaccurate, and he's wrong, and he doesn't know what he's talking about."
Gotta love the Senator.
Schilling is on record as wanting an independent party to do the drug testing. Damon claims the owners are not really against steroid use as steroids bring more home runs which makes higher revenue. Of course Dammon has not concrete proof of this, so he is talking out his rear end. Titan Tom also weighs in on the what life would be like for ML players with an indepenent party doing the drug tests:
, "If you want people knocking on your door at 6 o'clock in the morning and following you around for a couple of days and knocking on your door in the middle of your Thanksgiving dinner, I guarantee you 99 percent of these guys will shut their mouths."
Well maybe some guys would, but not Schilling. In fact if he ever lost his ability to speak he'd always have internet message boards to preach his gospel.
