    The best thing is to not have U.S. Attorneys considering whether or not to file charges against you in the first place.  The next best thing, I suppose, is to have them considering them and then decide not to file them: The U.S. Attorney’s office in Rhode Island says no federal criminal charges will be…

    Curt Schilling

    Curt Schilling has spent many years promoting conservative candidates and causes and styled himself a champion of private enterprise, limited spending and self-reliance. Good for him.

    Schilling

    There has been a lot of talk in the blogosphere and Twitterverse today about that Boston Globe story in which anonymous Red Sox sources basically tear Terry Francona, Theo Epstein and multiple Sox players a new one.

    Ultimately what baseball players think about the major issues of the day that aren’t baseball-related is rather unimportant, but I found this distinction to be 100% unsurprising.
