Schilling said on HBO's "Costas Now" that Bonds and McGwire's refusals to address accusations of steroids use are tantamount to admissions.
"If someone wrote that stuff about me and I didn't sue their (butt) off, am I not admitting that there's some legitimacy to it?" he said on HBO's "Costas Now."
"If I wrote a book about Bob Costas and in that book I wrote about Bob Costas' girlfriend being on the road, and Bob Costas giving that girlfriend card show money and I outlined your daily steroid regimen, I've got to believe your first line of defense is to sue my (butt) off," Schilling said.
"It goes to the Mark McGwire thing in Congress. I mean, I'm a huge Mark McGwire fan. But I just always thought it was very simple: If you did something and someone asks you if you did it and you didn't do it, you say no. Any other answer than no is some form of yes, isn't it?"
So wait a second Curt, why were you so reticent when you were testifying on Capitol Hill?
"When you're sitting in front of Congress and you're under oath, you'd better be damn sure if you're going to mention a name that you are 100 percent guaranteed sure somebody did something," he said during the HBO interview.
Yeah, that makes sense, you want to be sure you're 100% correct when you're testifying to Congress, but when you're on a TV show you might as well just swing for the fences.
Perhaps Curt is forgetting that he could be sued for making statements that suggest things he can't prove.
