Apparently unbeknownst to Coakley, Schilling was a star pitcher for Boston's Red Sox--a former job that I'm pretty sure disqualifies him as a Yankees fan. Whoops.
Now obviously Coakley's knowledge of baseball doesn't make her more or less qualified for the job, but I love how, like a true politician, she tries to recover from her massive gaffe by claiming Schilling is "not [with the Sox] anymore," implying she is, in fact, correct in asserting he's a fan of the NY Yankees.
