Curt Schilling Credits MLB’s Current Decrease in Offense to Lack of Steroid Use

Former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling has never been one to shy away from making controversial comments.

This time, his comments are about steroids and how they played an integral part of baseball over the past 20 years, according to AOL Sporting News.

“There isn’t a team in the last 20 years that has won clean,” said Schilling.

Schilling said his generation of players will always be tagged as the steroid-using generation, especially because two of the greatest hitters and pitchers of the time — Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens — were both accused of using steroids.

“There’s a lot of good, young pitchers in the game right now, but far fewer players are cheating,” Schilling said. “One of the bigger reasons they all did [steroids] was it allowed them to be April fresh in September and that helped you hit home runs. Anybody who ever says performance-enhancing drugs didn’t help players produce offensive numbers is full of crap.”
