Normally, I’d let a 14 year old dog lie, but sometimes, they’re too remarkable. That said, the year Steve Carlton was inducted into the baseball Hall of Fame, he was interviewed and espoused some rather strange views on Bill Clinton having a disavowed black son and the world being run by 12 Jews.
Apparently he made it the rest of the year and through his induction speech (which I listened to) without saying anything else to get into trouble. Not talking to the media might not have been hard for the lefthander, though, because there were stretches in his career when he didn’t talk to the writers for up to 8 years at a time.
I don’t know. I say let’s give him a pass, I guess, since he’s not hurting anyone thinking this way and it was 14 years ago and all.
