Curt Schilling Deserves Hall of Fame Induction Despite Reputation as Polarizing Figure

A few Red Sox hurlers will be eligible for the Hall of Fame within the coming years. And while Pedro Martinez seems like a lock, and Roger Clemens‘ candidacy is hindered by his link to performance-enhancing drugs, Curt Schilling is the ultimate toss-up for some.

Not for NESN’s Peter Gammons — who is a Hall of Famer himself.

Gammons feels that Schilling is undoubtedly a Hall of Famer, which is likely a sentiment echoed by many Sox fans who still have visions of the right-hander battling for seven innings against the Yankees with a bloody sock in Game 6 of the 2004 ALCS.

Schilling will forever be a Red Sox legend, but will his clutch performances be good enough for him to earn induction into Cooperstown? Check out Gammons’ argument in the video above from Red Sox Hot Stove Live.
