According to multiple reports, former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling's video game company has laid off all of its employees due to its recent financial struggles. Schilling's 38 Studios employed close to 400 people.
The company, which moved to Providence in 2010, had received a $75 million loan guarantee from Rhode Island at the time of its move from Maynard. It was reportedly two weeks lated on a $1.1 million payment due to the state this month.
The news of the layoffs at 38 Studios comes on the same day that Helena Foulkes, the vice chairwoman of Rhode Island’s economic development agency board, resigned. Foulkes joined executive director Keith Stokes as prominent members of the board to resign in wake of the issues regarding the board's decision to loan 38 Studios the money.

Added Ainge: "Avery needs surgery, so he should have a summer full of rehab. He should be ready to go next year."

Making his weekly appearance on Mut & Merloni Thursday afternoon, ESPN baseball analyst Buster Olney talked all things Red Sox, including pitcher Daniel Bard, whose spotty effectiveness has been a concern all season.
Bard pitched 5 1/3 innings and earned a win on Wednesday against the Orioles to improve his record to 4-5, but his ERA stands at 4.69 and he has more walks than strikeouts. Olney said that league scouts are concerned not only with Bard's fastball but his control as well.
"They're saying to me what really concerns them is how much he's missing his target by," Olney said. "They're watching that the target is down and in and the ball is high and away. He's missing his target by a couple of feet, and for them that's a concern. And the feeling is: How good can he be if he's missing by that much, and what is the reason behind that?"
