Schilling: Valentine's clearly miserable
ESPN analyst and former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling, in an appearance on WEEI on Thursday morning, said he's shocked that Bobby Valentine is still managing the Red Sox and that he feels bad for him.
"I can't believe he's still here, on both parts," Schilling said. "I can't believe he hasn't walked away. I promise you, and I was saying this the other night, I don't care what he's making right now, is it not clear right now that he's one of the most miserable human beings in the world? And I feel horrible for him."
Schilling, who was one of the first to criticize the Valentine hiring, added that the Red Sox manager hasn't done much to help his cause in Boston. He pointed to Valentine's outburst on WEEI on Wednesday about the report that he arrived later than usual to the ballpark before last Saturday's game in Oakland.
"I don't get it," said Schilling. "That's a situation that could have been over. He made into 100 times a bigger deal than it should have been. That's the stuff that confuses me because that keeps everything going."
