Curt Schilling: spill the steroid beans

OK, I'll just say it: I like Curt Schilling. Yes, he's a loudmouth. Yes, maybe he's too opinioniated some times, but there's just something about the guy that I like. Most of you hate him, I understand that, but I'm going to pub whatever he says because ... well ... I can.

Schill's latest post on his 38Pitches blog is regarding Alex Rodriguez and the "new" steroid scandal:

I’d be all for the 104 positives being named, and the game moving on if that is at all possible. In my opinion, if you don’t do that, then the other 600-700 players are going to be guilty by association, forever.

It’s not about good and bad people, because Mark McGwire and Jason Giambi are two of the kindest human beings ever. Andy Pettite is a fantastic person. That’s seemingly got nothing to do with anything. One hundred and four players made the wrong decision, and it appears that not only was it 104, but three of the greatest of our, or any, generation appear to be on top of this list.

And before anyone asks, I’ll make it clear: My name will not appear on any lists of positive tests. I’ve never tested positive for steroids or HGH, and I’ve never taken steroids or HGH in my life, ever. You don’t need to call the union, or an agent to verify that.

Let's give it to the guy -- he's honest -- and I think in this situation he is right. While you might not like what Schill has got to say, he's always had the same stance when it comes to steroids.
