LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) -- Curt Schilling knows criticism is coming. He expects it.

The former All-Star pitcher is replacing Orel Hershiser on ESPN's "Sunday Night Baseball" broadcast crew next season, giving him a wider audience for his opinions.

In the 25th season of "Sunday Night Baseball," Schilling will join former Philadelphia teammate John Kruk, play-by-play man Dan Schulman and reporter Buster Olney. Hershiser is expected to join the Los Angeles Dodgers' new regional sports network, the Los Angeles Times reported Sunday.

Schilling has been a studio analyst for ESPN's "Baseball Tonight" since 2010 and also been in the booth for a few games.

A six-time All-Star, Schilling said he plans to bring a pitcher's perspective to the telecasts.
