Curt Schilling weighs in on potential hall-of-famers
Friday January 9th, 2015

Former MLB pitcher Curt Schilling was asked on the Dan Patrick Show if certain players who were suspected of using performance enhancing drugs should be elected into the Hall of Fame.

Schilling said that Barry Bonds, baseball's all-time home runs leader, should be elected. Bonds hit eight of his 762 home runs off Schilling in his career. Schilling said that he think Bonds was a Hall of Famer before suspected PED use.

On Roger Clemens, winner of 354 games and seven Cy Young awards, Schilling said, "No, he cheated."

He also said that New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez should not get into the Hall either. Rodriguez was suspended for the entire 2014 season for his role in the Biogenesis scandal.

"Oh God, no. I think there is a belief that what he did, he did his entire career," Schilling said about Rodriguez.

In this year's voting, Schilling received 39.2 percent of the vote in his third year of eligibility, Clemens received 37.5 percent and Bonds received 36.8 percent of the vote.

Schilling won 216 games in 20 MLB seasons and was 11-2 in the postseason.
