Schilling: Can't believe Bobby V 'still here'

Former Red Sox pitcher and current ESPN analyst Curt Schilling was a guest of the Dennis & Callahan show on Thursday morning. Schilling was first asked about the contentious interview with Bobby Valentine during the manager's weekly appearance on The Big Show Wednesday. Valentine was upset after being asked if he had "checked out" for the rest of the season and questioned the integrity of reporters who wrote that he was late to Oakland Coliseum last Saturday.

"I played with managers who slept at the ballpark," Schilling said. "The latest they got to the park was noon for a 7 o'clock game. So what? You're late. It's not that big deal. I thought that part, that question, was almost harmless. … He turned that into, I don't get it. 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."

Schilling, who was an early critic of the Valentine hire, was asked if, at this point, it makes any sense for Valentine to manage the rest of the season for the Sox, who are 63-75 on the season following a 1-8 West Coast trip.

"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."

One name that has been mentioned as a potential successor to Valentine is John Farrell. Schilling was asked if he would part with a top prospect to land Farrell, who is under contract with the Blue Jays through the 2013 season.

"No, and I think he's by far as good as anyone on the planet at anything. … This guy, if you don't know him you can't understand how unbelievably qualified he is," said Schilling. "But if I am where they are now, every player is precious and invaluable. I can't imagine Toronto letting John go, and can't imagine them, if they did let him go, I can't imagine it wouldn't be just an astronomically high price. I can't imagine it would be just a prospect."
