Curt Schilling checked in with the Dennis & Callahan show Thursday morning.
After a lengthy discussion about last week's massacre at Fort Hood, Texas, the topic turned to the Red Sox. Schilling was asked if Jason Varitek could be productive and happy in a backup role.
Said Schilling: "The only answer I can honestly give you is 'I hope so. I hope so.' Because offensively, he's shown in the last two years the exact opposite trend you're after. ... I still believe 2008 was a direct reflection on his personal life. I think he had an immense amount of issues in his personal life that had a detrimental effect. I know he was injured often in 2008, and to me that was exactly why he had the season he had. But [in 2009] ... he just had a really bad year.
"The only thing I grin a little bit about — and it has nothing to do with Jason — is the fact that Scott Boras is groveling," Schilling added. "He obviously has no shame. No shame whatsoever — leveraging his clients against each other, because I guarantee you that's the only thing he could have leveraged in a discussion with the Red Sox."
