Thing I learned while, for some reason, listening to Curt Schilling call in to the Dan Patrick Show today: he was paid $2.5 million a year to work for ESPN. $2.5 million.
I will refrain from saying whether or not I’d personally pay Curt Schilling $2.5 million to opine about baseball on my sports network, but I will say this: if someone paid me $2.5 million a year and said “Craig, you can keep this job as long as you don’t post offensive memes on your Facebook page more than, like, 5-6 times,” I think I’d still have that job. I realize Schilling doesn’t roll that way and, hey, you do you, Curt, but it’s not like it’d be hard for him to still be making $2.5 million a year right now if he really wanted to.
Again: Curt Schilling. $2.5 million. Yup.
