Former Boston Red Sox SP Curt Schilling said that members of the organization encouraged him to use performance-enhancing drugs near the end of his career. "Former members of the organization," he said. "They're no longer there. But it was an incredibly uncomfortable conversation because it came up in the midst of a group of people. The other people weren't in the conversation, but they could clearly hear the conversation, and it was suggested to me that at my age, and in my situation, why not, what did I have to lose? Because if I wasn't going to get healthy, it didn't matter, and if I did get healthy, great."

SportingNews.com reports Boston Red Sox SP Curt Schilling (shoulder) said that he will not pitch a full season in 2009, but has not ruled out pitching for part of the season. "If I do decide to come back, I would work to the point I was ready and somewhere around May 1 let the teams know I wanted to pitch the second half. I'd obviously need to spend June in the minor leagues building it all back up and then hopefully come back and help a team in contention win a World Series," Schilling said. "All of this is predicated with the fact that I am completely healthy and able to pitch like I did prior to breaking my shoulder early in 2007."
