Curt's Eliminating the Media Middle Man

Schilling on Blogging:

3.20.07, Curt Schilling on sports radio WEEI's Dennis and Callahan:

Schilling: “…When I feel like it, I knock it out. And I can type somewhat fast so it doesn’t take me nearly as long as some people might think. Partially (does it to answer all the questions that come his way), sure. I think there’s a level of unhappiness with the way sports media conducts itself. There are a lot of people that just suck at what they do. And as athletes, you pay the price for people like that and… a lot of different reasons (why he blogs), no one reason. But one of the things I thought was great was that the other day, I had written that lengthy post about my contract situation and the next day in The Boston Globe, there’s an article about my contract situation that just quoted the blog and I didn’t have to do anything for that.”

Q: So you kind of eliminate the middle man?

Schilling: “Not kinda, you do. You do. And that’s not a bad thing in a lot of cases. So, it’s been something… I wasn’t ready for the amount of traffic and the number of people. To have gotten over a half million people in 11 days was somewhat staggering to me… We don’t have to plug it (38pitches.com), it is what it is.

Q: You said half a million?

Schilling: “Yeah, 11 days.”

Q (Callahan): So how do you think they find out about it? They find out about it through those media people who suck. They’re the ones spreading the word…

Schilling: “No, no actually they don’t. They found out about it online, most of them. Boston Dirt Dogs. Yeah… the beauty of it is, it is what you make it. It’s an easy forum, and it’s a cool way to do the Q&A thing which is something I don’t mind doing every now and then.”
