Glanville to Join ESPN; Shut Up Schilling

Doug Glanville will join ESPN’s Baseball Tonight this season. 

“It is an honor to join the richly talented environment of ESPN,” Glanville said in an ESPN-issued statement. “There is no other place that has such credibility in sports journalism, while spanning so many platforms. I welcome the creative challenge of adding a new voice to the team and, because of ESPN’s enthusiasm to cooperatively express my voice, we found ourselves on the same exciting page.”

Can’t wait to here Glamville and John Kruk together.

Why do we still listen to Curt Schilling? I feel like he loves to bash the Phillies at every oppurtunity he gets. Does he not realize fans still like him?

In an interview with the Philly Inquirer, he bashed the Phillies decision to trade Cliff Lee. Read what he says below and click here to read the Phightins’ take on Schill-dog:

I think trading Cliff Lee was the stupidest thing they’ve ever done, and they didn’t have to,” Schilling said. “They didn’t have to do it. It was a stupid, stupid move. They could’ve had a World Series berth locked up right now with those two guys at the top of their rotation.”

 

“Those guys would’ve finished legitimately 1-2 [as] Cy Young candidates on the same staff,” Schilling said. “You’ve got Cole Hamels in the three slot, which is a dream come true for both. They would’ve been a 110-win team.”

“There’s no other reason why they made that deal [than to replenish their minor league system], none whatsoever. That’s why they didn’t push trying to re-sign Cliff, because I think they felt like he would’ve been real receptive to it, so then they would’ve looked even worse, because ‘We traded a guy who wants to be here.’ ”

“He’s coming off a phenomenal run when he came over,” Schilling said of Lee. “He showed them [in] October he was going to be better than everybody else. You don’t know what you’re getting there. Doc’s never pitched in October. I think he’ll be great and be awesome and all that stuff, but he could get to October and not be the guy. Cliff proved that he can pitch in October. That’s a big loss.”
