Curt Schilling? On a business podcast? Where have our standards as a reputable society gone? Oh … now we get it. The PBD Podcast is a “business” podcast that “discusses, current events, trending topics and politics as they relate to life and business.” Naturally, that includes the subject of Trevor Bauer. Dive in, Los Angeles Dodgers fans!
Even better, per PBD’s Twitter profile, it’s “a podcast for independent and critical thinkers.” Come one, come all. THIS is where you can think freely.
The host, entrepreneur Patrick Bet-David (PBD), decided to have Schilling on last week to talk a variety of topics, but somehow abruptly transitioned into talking about Bauer as the other co-host wasn’t yet done with their previous discussion about the Los Angeles Lakers. They better have someone marking these timestamps for the listeners.
Anyway, Bauer was brought up and Schilling claimed the pitcher was “never going to play again.” PBD asked if that was “deserved” and Schilling said, “No, absolutely not. Nothing happened.”
Nothing happened! Nothing. Happened. Nothing at all. Schilling then went on to say that sports owners are “generally liberal people” and that teams are “catering to fans who don’t buy tickets.” (Start listening at 38:10.)
Curt Schilling, expectedly, had wild claims about MLB when talking about the Dodgers and Trevor Bauer
And then we have another banger of a quote! After the hosts wondered if another team will take a risk on Bauer assuming his suspension is lifted or he waits it out until 2024, Schilling cut in again to say:
"“Well, and let’s just add to the fact that [Bauer] is clearly kind of a di-k. If you look at the way his teammates have talked about him and the things that he’s done … he and I got into it over the fact he cut his finger on a drone during the playoffs … I don’t think there’s any team that would want the headache … and I really don’t blame them.”"
He then added Bauer “clearly doesn’t have any common sense.”
You also gotta love this panel of folks who know nothing about the legal proceedings talk as if they’re the lawyers, judge and jury. Hilarious.
This is Schilling in a nutshell; blinding claiming “nothing happened” in reference to a sexual assault lawsuit he has no intel on but then confidently stating the defendant is “clearly a di-k.”
For all the butthurt liberals out there, we’re sorry, but you’re not going to like Schilling’s take on the new Elon Musk Twitter, either.
As for Bauer, you can catch him on his YouTube channel probably hyping up the support he got from Schilling once he catches wind of this, followed by a full-on Twitter spat with the retired pitcher for calling him a common sense-less di-k.
