Schilling wants to slay Yankees for Red Sox

BOSTON Curt Schilling is a winner, a workhorse and a fanatic about preparation.

And, even better: He isn't afraid of the New York Yankees.

The Boston Red Sox acquired the 37-year-old right-hander from the Diamondbacks after he waived his no-trade clause and agreed to a deal that guarantees him $37.5 million over the next three years.

With an option for 2007, he has four years to win a championship in Boston like he did in Arizona, when he brushed aside the vaunted Yankees tradition and beat them in the 2001 World Series.
