Curt Schilling is probably the best pitcher not in the Hall of Fame. Schilling pitched 20 seasons with the Baltimore Orioles, Houston Astros, Philadelphia Phillies, Arizona Diamondbacks, and Boston Red Sox. He has a career 3.46 ERA, 3.23 FIP, and 1.14 WHIP in 3261 innings. He is one of the few members of the 3000 strikeout club with 3116. He's also one of the greatest Postseason pitchers of all-time, with a 2.23 ERA, 0.99 WHIP, and 4.80 K:BB ratio in 133.1 Postseason frames. On top of that, he has both an NLCS MVP and a World Series MVP award.

But Schilling has had a ton of controversy. Schilling has posted multiple racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, etc. things on his social media accounts. There are too many times he's done this to discuss here. If I were to list it, we would be here for hours. If this wasn't enough, he leaked Tim Wakefield's cancer battle in late September. The former knuckleballer nor his wife wanted this info known by the public at that time, but that didn't stop Schilling from talking about it on his podcast. Wakefield unfortunately passed shortly after this incident, and it's extremely sad that this is one of the last things that happened to him before his passing.
