Schilling was criticized by columnists as a self-promoter who brags about his work ethic and uses radio and the Web to hold forth on everything from steroid use to the Iraq War and his support for U.S. President George W. Bush. Jose Canseco, former Oakland Ks slugger, branded Schilling as a politician and a hypocrite. INSET: FROM PLAYER TO CREATOR, ONLINE.
