Former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling, joining Dennis & Callahan in studio for 90 minutes Friday morning, said he is "tapped out" financially following the demise of his video game company.
Schilling said he invested "just north of $50 million" of his own money and lost it all. "I'm tapped out," he insisted.
Schilling said he sat down his family about a month ago and explained to them that "38 Studios was probably going to fail and go bankrupt, and that the money that I had earned and saved during baseball was probably all gone. And that it was my fault. And that they might start hearing some things in school and things like that. And let's be clear: We're not talking about a terminal illness or somebody dying. But it's a life-changing thing. It's not a conversation I would wish on any father, or on anybody. But I had to do it, and explain to them that part of growing up is being accountable. This was my...
Spurs guard Tony Parker on Thursday filed a lawsuit against a New York City nightclub for $20 million after he received a scratched retina during a fight involving singer Chris Brown and hip-hop star Drake. The dispute apparently centered around the singer Rihanna, who both men have dated. Parker accused the W.i.P. club in SoHo of being negligent in security and supervision for allowing the fight to happen.
Police say members of Drake's entourage stopped Brown as he was leaving, and the situation escalated into a fight in which bottles were thrown. Brown, his girlfriend and his bodyguard were injured along with five others.
"The defendants were reckless, careless and negligent in permitting Drake's entourage and Brown's entourage to be in the club at the same time despite known tension between the two," the filing states.
Parker has said he was "with my friend Chris Brown" when the player "took some punches." He...
LeBron James finished with 26 points, 13 assists and 11 rebounds to lead the Heat to a 121-106 Game 5 win over the Thunder Thursday night, giving Miami an NBA championship and allowing James to capture his first career professional title.
James and the Heat closed out Kevin Durant (32 points, 11 rebounds) with a tremendous third quarter. With Miami holding a 10-point edge at halftime, the Heat ran away with a 36-22 third-quarter burst thanks to some great shooting from beyond the 3-point arc (the Heat went 14-for-26 on 3's on the night).
On Thursday night, Will Middlebrooks served as the catalyst in the Red Sox' 6-5, come-from-behind victory, going 3-for-4 with a game-tying two-run homer while driving in four runs. He is now hitting .316 with a .352 OBP, a .551 slugging percentage, a .903 OPS, eight homers and 31 RBI, and the Red Sox own a 22-13 record in games when he's started at third base.
That being the case, Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine was asked whether he could resist having Middlebrooks -- who has started 11 of 18 games this month -- play on an everyday basis, rather than continuing his timeshare with Kevin Youkilis at third base.
"It seems like he’s doing just fine like this. He’s keeping sharp," Valentine said. "He’s watching, he’s learning and when he’s in there, he doesn’t look like he’s missing a beat, obviously."
For his part, Middlebrooks said that he is continuing to grow as a player. Indeed,...
Will Middlebrooks tied the game with a long homer to the bleachers in center and drove in four runs as the Red Sox completed the three-game sweep of the Marlins with a 6-5 win Thursday night at a steamy Fenway Park. The Red Sox won their fifth straight and matched their high-water mark of three games over .500 at 36-33.
Making his third start back off the disabled list, Daisuke Matsuzaka was very shaky in the first frame, giving up three hits and three runs while allowing three stolen bases and needing 33 pitches to get through the inning.
But beginning with the final out of the first, he retired 14 straight batters while the Red Sox chipped away at Miami's lead. The Red Sox got two runs back in the fourth when they took advantage of Carlos Zambrano's complete lack of control. The Marlins righty drilled Cody Ross and Jarrod Saltalamacchia to open the inning. Middlebrooks then singled home Ross. Mike Aviles followed one out later with a...
