Curt Schilling doesn't know what he's talking about

Sep 25, 2009, 9:20 AM EDT

Curt Schilling, after saying that A-Rod is already starting to choke before the playoffs even start, tries to explain why A-Rod is a poor postseason performer:

“For a guy that’s as good as he is, he still strikes out a lot. Guys who strike out a lot tend to have a tough time in October.”

Someone want to tell Schilling that the man who was actually given the nickname “Mr. October” is also the all-time leader in strikeouts?  The upper reaches of the all-time strikeout list also includes 2004 World Series MVP and Curt Schilling teammate Manny Ramirez, 1979 World Series MVP Willie Stargell, and 1980 World Series MVP Mike Schmidt.

But I’m sure this is a simple mistake on Schilling’s part because he never talks nonsense just to hear his own voice.

    Schilling says a lot of things; some are very perceptive; some are dumb. This was one of the dumb ones. He’s still smarter and more articulate than 90% of all ballplayers. Sportswriters resent him because he dares to write his own stuff. Other people dislike him because he dares to be openly religious and politically conservative. Horrors. He may not know about what hitters perform well in the post-season, but on the general topic of clutch performance in play-off games, he qualifies as an expert. All this invective is over-kill. You should be grateful that he gave you a silly little statement to go nuts about. Generous of him, really.

    It’s too bad he didn’t make a serious run for public office, but guess he found out how unpopular he is in MA area. So, why not stay with what you do best…whine and hate the Yankees to feed your ego. What a bitter man. And he hasn’t reached 50 yet!

    Aw, this was a really quality post. In theory I’d like to write like this too – taking time and real effort to make a good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate alot and never seem to get something done.
