So, Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling has fired another salvo at steroid usage in baseball, taking particular aim at Barry Bonds, Mark McGwire, Rafael Palmeiro and Jose Canseco, huh?

Ho-hum.

Schilling, the self-appointed conscience of baseball, dumped all over Bonds during HBO's "Costas Now" this week, telling host Bob Costas, among other things, that if people said about him, meaning Schilling, what they've said about Bonds and McGwire regarding performance-enhancing substances and he didn't reply, the silence could be taken as a tacit admission that he did use them.

Schilling said that Canseco, who admitted to steroid use, should have to give back the Most Valuable Player award that he won, and that Palmeiro's stats from 2005, the year he went past 3,000 hits while in an Orioles uniform, should be voided.

Just wondering: Why didn't Schilling dump on Canseco in person when he had the chance in that now infamous St. Patrick's Day Congressional hearing two years ago? Schilling whiffed that day, essentially admitting that he didn't know as much about steroid usage as he had claimed. And why didn't Schilling offer his thoughts about Bonds last month when the San Francisco Giants were in Fenway Park for a series, rather than wait until Bonds was 3,000 miles away?

Let's just say that Curt Schilling just got added to that list of people that I no longer take seriously (see earlier entry).
