no such thing as a quiet off day in Boston.

So far after 7 weeks Edgar Renteria has not be living up to the hype and some Boston fans ( and media ) wonder if the team is still paying for Dan Duquette letting David Eckstein get away for nothing back in 2000. Fans in Boston have been on Edgar big time and after hearing this interview with a St Louis columnist, Curt on a car phone had to chime in

On the fans getting on Edgar Renteria

I thought that a lot of this stems from the comments that Tony (La Russa) made last week that I think were absolutely totally inappropriate. I think Tony put Edgar in a very bad situation. …I love Tony La Russa, but I thought that he put Edgar in a very bad situation. For a player that he talks about caring about so much, I thought he stuck him in a corner there. I’m sure that could play a part of it (Glenn Ordway’s assertion that La Russa was still hurt that Renteria elected to go play in Boston). I would bet that he would probably say ‘no it didn’t’ but I would imagine that there was some of that there but I just thought it was a really bad situation to put Edgar in coming from a guy who talked about caring about the guy so much. You know, I laugh, I listen to Kevin (Millar), and that’s what makes Kevin such a beautiful guy and in a nutshell kind of describes what you have in this clubhouse. He lay in front of a train for his teammates and we would do the same for each other. It’s one of the things that make the dynamics of our clubhouse so great is that you care so much about what your teammates think about you that you push yourself to do some things or get through some things that maybe you normally wouldn’t in another market or in another or area with another group of guys. Edgar knows that every one of us… he’s gonna be that guy at the end of the year. He’s gonna hit .275. He’s gonna hit between 15 and 25 homers. He’s a gold glove, silver slugging All-Star shortstop. …I don’t either, I don’t either

Shaun McAdam: Curt can you think of a guy either that you played with in Philadelphia or in Arizona who re-signed with a team or moved to that franchise as a free-agent who had the same problem out of the box, trying to justify the contract?

CS: There was a lot of times in Philadelphia uhh… Edgar Renteria would be getting hit by batteries in Philadelphia by now, no question

This is pretty scary. Kevin Millar is a beautiful guy? They all like to lay down in front of trains together? Schilling must be on quiet a few drugs for that ankle.

Will someone tell Curt Schilling to just shut up? That guy is baseball's biggest moth. Go and do your rehab, Curt.

I'm not even reading the article, the thread title is enough. Shut the hell up, Schilling. Your lame, open and frank "I'm not afraid to call anyone out because I'm a no-nonsense loudmouth" act is very tiresome.

Schilling is the Christopher Hitchens of MLB. I look forward to hearing Schilling lash out at the following:

- Bill Clinton
- Mother Teresa
- the Dalai Lama
- Queen Elizabeth
- Tony Blair
- William Shatner's campaign on behalf of bran cereal
- airline schedules
- the incongruity of Senator Organa's daughter somehow becoming "Princess" Leia by Episode IV
- jellied eels
- my neighbour's cat
- Dancin' Nanas
- Bodacious Ta-Tas
- belly button lint
- people who are full of themselves and don't realize it
