Via the Free Press –
Curt Schilling has been hired by ESPN as a baseball analyst. The network said the former pitcher, who won World Series with the Arizona Diamondbacks and Boston Red Sox, will appear on “Baseball Tonight” and ESPN Radio, in addition to contributing to ESPNBoston.com and the company’s main Web site. He will make his debut tonight during ESPN’s pregame coverage of the season opener between Boston and the New York Yankees.
I’ve never been one of those people who believed that ESPN had an anti-Yankees bias. But, with the addition of Schilling, they may have an element of that now.
Don’t get me wrong here…Schilling knows more about baseball than many other people. He’s a true student of the game. But, he’s also a narcissistic grandstanding windbag who’s in love with the sound of his own thoughts/voice. Plus, he’s a Red Sox propaganda artist. So, I’m pretty sure this will lead to some anti-Yankees slant on the coverage that he provides for ESPN.
