Schilling: Lackey's reaction surprising

Former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling joined the Dennis & Callahan show Wednesday morning to discuss his video game company's controversial move to Rhode Island. Schilling also weighed in on the Red Sox, saying of the Sox at the trade deadline: "They're in a seven-day window in which three wins in a row can change everybody's perspective."

 

Asked about John Lackey's reaction to getting booed by fans of his former team Tuesday night in Anaheim, Schilling replied: "I don't know why he'd be offended. Listen, I was a part of two world championship teams here, and there's a lot of people in this state who hate me. ... This is a business. I was kind of surprised by that, because I assumed Lack was a guy who was like, 'Oh, whatever.' A lot of times when we leave places, we tend to value our contributions a lot more than other people."

 

Schilling also discussed the Jacoby Ellsbury injury situation and...

Concussion may force Mets' Bay to DL

Mets outfielder Jason Bay was diagnosed with a mild concussion, and the former Red Sox slugger might make a trip to the disabled list if symptoms do not clear in the next few days.

 

Bay was injured Friday when he slammed into an outfield wall at Dodger Stadium while making a catch. Asked how long he might be out, Bay told the New York Daily News: "I have no idea. Right now, we're hoping. I saw the doc and he said as long as, when the headaches go away, I can ramp up activity and could be back fairly soon. We're going to take the next couple of days and just see if it gets better."

 

Added Bay: "Hopefully, I can be back inside a week. Obviously, after a couple of days and you still have a headache, you're that much further away and [the team] is shorthanded that much longer."

 

Bay is batting just .259 with six home runs and 47 RBI since signing a $66 million free agent...
