Hey Boston, Curt Schilling is no fan of yours.

The outspoken and controversial ex-Red Sox pitcher told USA today he doesn’t like his Boston experience and is moving his family to Tennessee after his wife Shonda completes her breast cancer treatments.

Among his quotes:

“Outside of our circle of friends, it hasn’t been a real pleasant experience in Boston,’’

“So we’re just trying to find a place to live out our lives with happiness with people that are nice, and Tennessee is it.’’

“People that are nice?”  Oh, boy.  Since Curt loves to force his opinion on everything, here’s mine.

Hey Curt, guess what?  You did this to yourself.  Yes, you helped us silence Yankee fans in 2004 with the greatest comeback in sports history.  You were an integral part of us winning two World Series championships in 2004 and 2007.  Thanks for all of that.  You probably deserve to be in the Baseball Hall Of Fame even though you say you don’t want the honor.  But the reason you’re falling short of the votes is because you’re not among the group considered “people that are nice.”  You spew hate and tear people down.  Much of it documented here.  Everyone is entitled to a political opinion, but wishing death on reporters, belittling people for their identity, and loving and worshipping nazis goes beyond what “people that are nice” with differing political opinions do.   And don’t forget the failed video game company that left many hard-working Rhode Island “people that are nice” out of work and money.

So…thanks for your baseball talents.  And not much else.  And because I consider myself in the “people that are nice” camp, I wish you and your family health and happiness.  I also wish you might be able to do a little listening instead of all the talking.  Here’s hoping you find some “people that are nice” in Tennessee.  And here’s hoping your Medfield neighbors get some “people that are nice” moving into your house.
