Steve Rubel posted about Curt Schilling's 38Pitches blog today on Micropersuasion as a result of the recent controversy around his Barry Bonds statements. I posted on Schilling's blog back in March (read it here) and have been following the local media frenzy ever since. Boston Radio Station, WEEI and the cast of characters over there (Note: I love WEEI - Completely Addicted) mention 38Pitches at least once a day.
Rubel's post comes at a time when Schilling publicly apologized for his comments about Barry Bonds "potential" steroid use and infidelity. Schill took some heat about his comments (which were in fact incorrect as Bonds has never admitted to anything as Schilling stated) but it was overblown. I appreciate Schillings candor and those type of comments are what I hope for and expect. I enjoy knowing where he stand on matters crucial to the future of baseball.
Some of the WEEI guys trashed Schilling this morning for apologizing for his comments. They felt that he was entitled to his opinion and should share his views with the 38 pitches audience (All agree that an apology was necessary for the incorrect statements). With Terry Francona's (Red Sox Manager) reaction telling Schilling to "Shut Up" and "Zip it a bit," I wonder how many C-Level executives are willing to hear that type of feedback from the board or CEO.
I am sure Steve knows how Schilling feels.
