ESPN announced tonight that former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling is joining the network as a baseball analyst.
In the press release announcing Schilling’s hiring, the network states his new duties thusly:
He will contribute to ESPNBoston.com, ESPN.com, ESPN Radio and Baseball Tonight. Schilling will debut tomorrow, Sunday, April 4, during Baseball Tonight’s live coverage of Opening Night – New York Yankees at Boston Red Sox – from Fenway Park at 7 p.m. on ESPN2.
I wonder what Shaughnessy will have to say about this. Beyond Dan, I don’t expect Schilling’s hiring to be met with the same level of nasty scorn from the media that Nomar Garciaparra’s ESPN hiring spawned.
Back to the other big story this weekend, 98.5 The SportsHub has already updated their website to remove Gary Tanguay and promote the new Gresh & Zolak show, debuting Monday.
