For the better part of this decade, Curt Shilling was a thorn in the side of Yankees fans. Co-MVP of Arizona's World Series victory with Randy Johnson in 2001. His legendary, gritty, bloody sock performance in the 2004 American League Championship series. He's rubbed some the wrong way with his outspoken manner but after today's interview on Dan Patrick, consider me a fan. He completely called out all the cheaters. Flatly went through the list and answered no when asked if they deserved to be in the Hall of Fame. Alex Rodriguez, Roger Clemens, Rafael Palmiero, Barry Bonds. None of them. No juicers or cheaters. He also pointed out his complete lack of respect for Bonds as a person as the Bay Area Baloonhead treated people like garbage. Interestingly enough he didn't feel he qualified as a Hall of Famer. I disagree. I will make my case on today's show. In some ways the big righty is the epitome of what it takes to get enshrined in Cooperstown. We will also take a quick look around at certain teams and see how things are moving along thus far in Spring Training. Eye on the Braves, Mariners, the Pujols for Ryan Howard rumour and a few more surprises.
At 4:20, we will have an interview with Oregon Track & Field stud, Ashton Eaton. This past weekend in Arkansas, he set the world record in the Heptathalon. We continue to focus on all the great things happening with Oregon athletics, not simply the football clowns embarassing the university.
We're doing the show live today from Guaranty in Junction City, just off Highway 99. We're not at the RV lot per usual, but to celebrate their being named the official area Saturn service center. It's a little north of the RV lot. We'll be inside. Come on down, check out some of the great rigs and enter to win baseball tickets, Duck gear and a pair of tickets for track and field, this Saturday's Oregon preview. See you there.
