The Curt Schilling item of the day

Is it me, or is Curt Schilling becoming the Paris Hilton of baseball?

As I said yesterday, I like the fact that Schilling has opinions.  But now, his opinion is that he shouldn't have so many opinions.  Or at least, not so many about Barry Bonds.

The quick recap:  Schilling ripped Bonds on a radio show early this week.  Said the guy cheated on his wife, his taxes and baseball and, in short, it was a dirty, rotten shame that he was about to break Hank Aaron's home run record.  Red Sox manager Terry Francona, weary of dealing with the daily Schilling fallout, told the pitcher to give it a rest.  So Schilling, in his online diary 38 Pitches -- not to be confused with 24 (Hours) other than that they both seem to be about cunning, resourceful guys on Messianic missions in the midst of constant crisis -- APOLOGIZES to Bonds.  And not just Bonds, but his family, his friends and the Giants for saying some things that have simply not been proven to be true.  Incredibly, Schilling actually managed to make Bonds a victim in all this.

Here's a more comprehensive version of the soap opera.

Look, Curt, you're the one who started down this road of taking the talk right to the people, presumably to get your message out in an unfiltered fashion.  If you're going to have a public opinion, that's fine. Just make sure that next time, it's one you can live with.
