Curt Schilling made an appearance on ESPN Radio on Wednesday for a conversation with Colin Cowherd. During the interview, Schilling said that a handful of former members of the Red Sox organization encouraged him to consider taking performance enhancing drugs toward the end of his career.

Schilling was injured in 2008 when, he says, four members of the Red Sox organization brought of PEDs as an avenue he should consider.

Asked for more details, Schilling said the conversation occurred in the clubhouse and involved “former members of the organization — they’re no longer there. 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.

The bombshell comes just a week after the Miami New Times published an investigative report on an alleged PED ring based in Miami that implicates Alex Rodriguez and other MLB players. [WEEI]
