Big Schill Won't Name Names, But He Thinks a Heavy-Handed
Sox Front Office Tipped the Scales Against Him

MacMullan: Case of Weight and See

"Schilling remains peeved about what he perceives to be media leaks concerning his conditioning. He held Francona blameless and quickly exonerated Epstein as well, leaving the finger squarely pointed in the direction of CEO Larry Lucchino, everyone's favorite piñata. If Lucchino is indeed the subject of his ire, then why not name him?

'I don't need to name anyone,' Schilling answered. 'The person knows that I know. I don't care if the rest of you know, too.' " -- 2.28.07, Jackie MacMullan, Boston Globe

Schilling Being Johnny?
Sounds Like One of the Most Beloved Members of the Yankees Fan Site, NYYFans.com, Is Warming Up to the Idea of Playing in New York ...

"I'm probably one of the worst hated opposing players for their fans. I doubt they'd want me there. It's got nothing to do with [GM] Brian Cashman. I love that guy. And I love Mr. Steinbrenner. But if I went to the Yankees, it would be me walking out of Boston and putting my finger up to the fans.

"I won't do it. And the dollar value will not tip the scales. If they gave me $25 million to pitch one season in Yankee Stadium, I'd still say no." -- 2.28.07, Schilling to the Globe's Jackie MacMullan

Buckley: Schill Throws Inside at Sox

"Asked specifically which Red Sox employees he believes are making anonymous comments about him to the media, Schilling’s response, verbatim, was as follows: 'People. No specific person. And nobody in mind. I just know that this is one of those organizations that there will be things said in the paper from a writer that you know didn’t come from the writer that came from somebody here that wanted to get a message to a player without telling him themselves.' " -- 2.27.07, Steve Buckley, Boston Herald
