Peter Gammons: Curt Schilling Hall of Fame conversation - GammonsDaily.com

I’m not convinced Schilling’s career was a Hall of Fame one. If, however, you’ve voted for Schilling in the past (or have a system which says he’s a Hall of Famer) and decided not to vote for him for the dumb things he says on Twitter, you might need to have your vote (and children) taken away.

Curt Schilling is not smarter than anyone at SONY, as he told one prospective investor. He is not going to the U.S. Senate. He is a former major league pitcher who clearly is trying to find his way in the post-career forest. However, he was so good at that one thing that he should be inducted in the Hall of Fame and dedicate the rest of his life to the ‘HOF’ tag that would forever follow his name.

My Hall of Fame Ballot by Mark Newman (or why I overhauled everything)

Baseball players make adjustments throughout their careers, whether it is adding a new pitch, moving to a new position, or changing their mechanics. I believe the same is required of Hall of Fame voters as the game evolves, so to that end, I modernize my own voting process.

If We Had a 2017 HOF Vote…

“One of the 20-25 greatest hitters to ever step in the box. When he played the outfield, he looked like a man trying to remember where he left his keys.”

“The HOF is populated by cheaters, gamblers, racists, drunks, and abusers of women. It’s also filled with kind, decent, generous men. One’s view on where Schilling lands on this character spectrum is irrelevant when assessing his qualifications as a player.”


The Plate Coverage take on some of the names we’ll see on the 2017 ballot.

OTP 2016 October 24: Breitbart Radio Exclusive: Curt Schilling Joins Breitbart News Rotation Weekdays 9AM to 11AM ET

The Arizona native said he is depicted as a close-minded, hateful man in the media when the opposite is true.

Schilling said an example of how he is treated in the media is his recent appearance on CNN with Jake Tapper.

“I asked him as a person of the Jewish faith, why people, who practice that faith would be supporters of the Democratic Party — given their anti-Israel, anti-Jewish stance,” he said. “After that — I was called an anti-Semite — and I am thinking to myself: ‘What a minute?’”

Yet, all the time, Christians are asked to defend or attack policies based on their being Christians, he said.

“I am not taking my news anymore from ‘the media’ because the media has very clearly given all pretenses away of objectivity,” he said. “They want and need Hillary Clinton in the White House.”

Only *2* more weeks until Election Day.
