Someone on Twitter asked Curt Schilling if he was going to identify the Red Sox employee who he claims advised him to take PEDs in 2008. His response:
Schilling update: RT @gehrig38: outing the person would not do anything for anyone. It wasn’t anyone in uniform, nor the baseball ops group

Outing the person publicly probably would not. It would probably just create a firestorm. But then again, Schilling had no compunction about telling the story at all, so (a) he obviously thinks it’s significant; and (b) it’s thus understandable that people might want him to name some names.
Personally I agree that doing this publicly makes little sense. If a team employee is counseling players to take PEDs, the league should investigate. And Schilling, if he believes what he has said in the past about the importance of eradicating PEDs from the game, should cooperate.
I’ve placed a call to MLB to get comment about Schilling’s comments and to ask whether the league plans to look into this any further. I have not yet heard back but I will update if and when I do.
