Schilling: I was stunned by Valentine hire

Former Red Sox pitcher and current ESPN analyst Curt Schilling was a guest of Dennis & Callahan on Thursday morning. Schilling was asked to give his thoughts on the Sox hiring Bobby Valentine to manage the club.

"This one was just a stunning one for me. I didn't see the fit, I just didn't see the fit," Schilling said. "Personality wise, Bobby's a different bird. He's a different animal. He's a smart guy, I had a chance to work with him this year at ESPN and he's some very interesting takes on managing. It just caught me off guard, when I think about the baseball ops guys and what they want to do and how they want to do it here I just didn't see him being the guy on their list. ... When I think back to the mandate and what the initiative was to change around what happened at the end of last year, Bobby Valentine's not the guy I thought this ownership group would be advocating for."

Schilling was asked if he...

Bruins give Krejci three-year extension
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins announced Thursday morning that they have signed center David Krejci to a three-year extension. According to TSN, Krejci, who would have been a restricted free agent at season's end, will get $5.25 million a year with his new deal. The 25-year-old is in the final year of a deal that pays him $3.75 million a year. 

The news comes the morning after Krejci led the way in Boston's 6-3 win over Toronto Wednesday. The first-line center had three points (1 G, 2 A) in the victory.

The Bruins drafted Krejci in the second round of the 2004 draft. In his NHL career, he has 62 goals and 165 assists for 227 points. He led the postseason in scoring during last spring's Stanley Cup run.

Report: Orioles interested in Varitek

According to a report from Jon Heyman of Sports Illustrated, the Orioles are among the teams showing an interest in free-agent Jason Varitek.

The 39-year-old Varitek hit .221 in 68 games in 2011 with the Red Sox, his 15th season with the club. Heyman suggests that it would be "hard to imagine" Varitek leaving the Red Sox.

“I would love to be back," Varitek told the WAAF's Hill-Man Morning Show in October. "I have bled this uniform my entire career proudly. I’ve literally bled this uniform. It’s hard to think to go anywhere else. But like I have the last two winters, especially last winter, I know that it might not be in their plans. And then if I’m going to play, I have to be prepared to go somewhere else.”

Mashup: Syracuse paper defends silence

The Syracuse Post-Standard and ESPN have come under fire for failing to publish stories about the Bernie Fine accusations when they were first contacted by former ball boy Bobby Davis in 2003. In Wednesday's Post-Standard, executive editor Michael J. Connor explains why the paper passed the first time, even after Davis taped a phone call with Laurie Fine in which she makes some statements that appear to corroborate Davis' story.

Connor explains that the tape -- which he implies was made with the encouragement of the paper -- was "sleazy and sickening" but still too vague and ambiguous to use as verification of the accusations. And when the paper confronted Laurie Fine after hearing the tape, she said it had been doctored and then stopped talking to the reporter.
