Schilling Takes His Game Online:
We Have a Feeling He'll Update His Site More Than Manny Does
"...I donít know that Iíll be changing my style, but I do know that getting ripped for something I say here will be getting ripped for something I actually saidĖwith the entire contents of my comments included.
"Thatís not to say Iíll be preaching from the pulpitĖfar from it. Being a major league baseball player does not give me keen insight into politics, education, or anything else for that matter. It does give me insight and knowledge about baseball, about being part of a team, about excelling at something not many people can. Beyond that my thoughts and beliefs are my own and for the most part pretty normal.
"The truth is, Iíve been wrong as many times, if not more, than Iíve been right in my life. I guess thatís part of the human package, something that makes me every bit as prone to mistakes as anyone. Like every other male on the planet I think Iím well informed on a lot of things, which usually lasts until I run into someone else who thinks heís well informed but has a different opinion.
"Fortunately, I have zero problems being wrong. I donít intend to make mistakes but it happens, which is part of the learning curve of life. Iím prone to having quick reactions which, in the world of baseball and media coverageĖeven when you might be rightĖcan make you wrong." -- 3.7.07, Curt Schilling, 38pitches.com
