I’ll be honest, im no fan of Jon Heyman, hell im no fan who calls themselves Jon, expect if he was a former roommate of mine. But these are some of the phrases he uses to describe Curt Schilling, grade A asshole
thirst for the spotlight
attention-starved 40-year-old pitcher
Schilling is simply the world’s worst agent
It is nothing short of idiotic. (On Schilling’s desire to pitch for the Devil Rays next year)
In Schilling’s case, of course, it has to be because he thinks he knows better. Because he thinks he knows everything.
Just because you can throw a fastball and splitter at world-class proficiency — not to mention become a World Series hero in two cities — doesn’t make you an agent. Or even particularly sane.
“He apparently didn’t go to Agents University.”
While Schilling dreams of the D-Rays, Red Sox people are thinking of October glory.
If he were half as smart as he thinks he is
Through the sheer luck of good timing, he is one of the better free-agent pitchers — if not the best pitcher — out there in the world’s worst free-agent pitching class.
40-year-old pitcher who was overweight in spring training
they’re signing up for a rerun of the very same nutty soap opera
Indeed. There you have it, Curt Schilling is an asshole. Man o man, i feel that Heyman went easy on him. He could have mentioned many other things like how he faked the bloody sock.
“It was painted,” Thorne said. “Doug Mirabelli confessed up to it after. It was all for PR.”
Or for example, how he is a media egomaniac:
Whenever Mitch Williams (a hard throwing closer with a penchant for unpredictability and erratic control) was on the mound, CBS television cameras caught Schilling in the dugout hiding his face with a towel. Although Schilling claimed that he was nervous in the heat of the World Series, others accused him of purposely trying to get more face time on television.
Or how he makes up shit and or judges other assholes (Barry Bonds):
“He admitted to cheating on his wife, cheating on his taxes and cheating on the game.”
And then states this about reporters who are critical of him:
There are a lot of [bad people] in that industry, Pedro Gomez, Joel Heyman, to name a few. People with so little skill in their profession that they need to speculate, make up, fabricate, to write something interesting enough to be printed. What makes them bad people? I am sure I cannot nail the exact reason, but I know some. Jealousy, bitterness, the need to be “different”, I am sure there are others, but those are the ones I know off hand.” and “You just kind of have to realize that there are people that don’t like you and, unfortunately, sometimes those people have a voice, disliking me probably matches my dislike for him (Gomez), but I have a problem with people who don’t have integrity and principle, so that stuff happens. You just kind of just let it go.”
