On ESPN Radio today Schilling was compelling. He said A-Rod's ploy was "Junior High" and when challenged by the announcer he said, "Let me ask you this. Would Jeter do something like that?" When the announcer said no, Schilling said, "Of course not, because he's a class act. He's a friggin' professional." When pressed if this meant A-Rod was not, Schilling said A-Rod was maybe the greatest player ever but he (Schilling) would never think of him as a class act. He was impassioned, and though this could be written off as trash talk, it seemed really sincere and genuine--something almost no one takes the risk to be with the media.
