BOSTON - Former major league pitcher Curt Schilling says he has been treated for mouth cancer and blames the disease on his use of chewing tobacco for about 30 years. Nike Air Max 270 Womens Sale . Schilling discussed details on WEEI-FM in Boston on Wednesday. The former Red Sox right-hander announced in February that he had cancer but hadnt disclosed what kind. He has said he is in remission after seven weeks of radiation and chemotherapy and has lost 75 pounds. "Im not going to sit up here from the pedestal and preach about chewing," he said. "It was an addictive habit. I can think about so many times in my life when it was so relaxing to just sit back and have a dip and do whatever. "And I lost my sense of smell, my taste buds for the most part. I had gum issues, they bled, all this other stuff. None of it was enough to ever make me quit." Schilling revealed the type of cancer two months after Hall of Fame outfielder Tony Gwynn died at the age of 54 of oral cancer, a disease he attributed to years of chewing tobacco. Use of chewing tobacco has been "a norm in the baseball culture," Red Sox manager John Farrell said. "On the heels of the unfortunate passing of Tony Gwynn and now what Curts going through, you would think that this would be more of a current beacon for guys to take note and know that theres a price to be paid if youre one of the unfortunate ones that is stricken by cancer." Major League Baseball prohibits having smokeless tobacco in public view and imposes fines for violations. Minor leaguers cannot use it in games. Former Red Sox left-hander Jon Lester was coming back from treatment for anaplastic large cell lymphoma in 2007, Farrells first year as Bostons pitching coach. Lester, sent to Oakland at the trade deadline last month, was 4-0 that year and won the final game of Bostons four-game sweep of the Colorado Rockies in the World Series. "Any time a public figure who is, unfortunately, diagnosed with cancer, is able to come out and speak about it — I know how hard that can be — it brings awareness," Lester said after Schillings disclosure, "and maybe sheds a little light or a little hope on somebody whos struggling." Before his team faced the Red Sox on Wednesday night, Los Angeles Angels manager Mike Scioscia said the use of smokeless tobacco "is non-existent in the minor leagues during a game. ... You hope that the next generation will heed the mistakes of the prior generation." Schilling is a three-time World Series champion with the Arizona Diamondbacks and Red Sox. "Its a very serious issue," said Baltimore Orioles manager Buck Showalter, Schillings manager with the Diamondbacks in 2000, the year before they won the World Series after Showalter left. Awareness "has gotten a lot better over the years through things like Curt is doing, but theres a long way to go." Schilling played from 2004-07 with the Red Sox, who won the World Series in his first and last seasons with them. "Hes elected to keep it very personal and I wouldnt want to betray that confidence," said Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona, who managed Boston from 2004-11. "Hes said what hes wanted to say, when hes wanted to say it." Colorado Rockies outfielder Michael Cuddyer said he tries to encourage young players not to use smokeless tobacco. "Anybody that thinks about it or wants to do it because its cool should realize its definitely not," he said. "Youre seeing these guys lives get put in jeopardy because of it. Young players and young kids should be aware of that. Its a disgusting habit." Schilling is being sued by Rhode Islands economic development agency after his video game company received a $75 million state loan guarantee and then collapsed. ___ AP Sports Writers Pat Graham and Janie McCauley and freelancers Patrick Donnelly and Paul Ladewski contributed to this story.

The victory moved the Giallorossi five points clear of Napoli and Juventus, which each play on Sunday. With new manager Rudi Garcia clearly leaving his mark on a squad that missed out on Europe last season with a sixth-place finish, Roma has scored 20 goals and conceded just one. "This squads continuity is the greatest thing," Totti said. "Winning seven straight matches isnt easy. ... I dont think anyone expected this start to the season. "But the club put the players in place and when you have the right frame of mind good things happen." It was the first loss this season for an Inter squad that had also impressed up to this point. The Nerazzurri are seven points back. Totti, who recently extended his contract for two more seasons, put Roma ahead 18 minutes in at the San Siro with a powerful and precise shot from 21 metres then doubled the lead with a penalty in the 39th after Gervinho was tripped, even though it appeared the foul occurred just outside the area. The two goals gave Totti 230 for his Serie A career. He is second on the all-time listt behind Silvio Piola, who has 274. Nike Air Max 270 Sale Outlet. .

Inter thought it pulled one back in the 66th when Andrea Ranocchia headed in but the defender was whistled for a foul on Roma goalkeeper Morgan De Sanctis, who clearly had possession first as the two players leaped up to the ball. Roma could have had a fourth goal when the speedy Gervinho ran clear in the 73rd but Inter goalkeeper Samir Handanovic did well to deny him. Roma ended with 10 men after Federico Balzaretti, who scored the winning goal in last months derby with Lazio, picked up his second yellow card in the 79th. Inters best chance turned out to be a shot off the post from Fredy Guarin in the 25th. Earlier, Atalanta won 1-0 at Chievo Verona to move into the top half of the table, 12 points behind Roma. Argentine forward Maximiliano Moralez scored in the 16th minute with an acrobatic shot for his first goal in 30 matches.
