For the first time in a long time the Subway Series will actually be entertaining. I'm hoping the series brings about some bad blood between Yankee and Mets fans, it's been getting kind of boring lately.

Too bad Dickey and Sabathia pitched yesterday. That would have added a bit to the weekend series.

Curt Schilling bounced from big show
Ex-hurler’s 38 Studios bankrupt, leaving R.I. on hook for millions

By Jerry Kronenberg and Donna Goodison

Friday, June 8, 2012 - Updated 1 minute ago

Former Red Sox [team stats] pitcher Curt Schilling [stats]’s video-game company 38 Studios has struck out for the final time, declaring bankruptcy despite a $75 million Rhode Island loan guarantee that the state wants back.

“The taxpayers of Rhode Island can have full confidence that if there’s a penny we can get — or a nickel or a dime — we’ll get it,” Ocean State Gov. Lincoln Chafee told reporters yesterday after 38 Studios filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in Delaware.

State officials also told local media that the FBI, U.S. Attorney’s office, Rhode Island attorney general and Rhode Island State Police had all opened investigations into the company.

Schilling didn’t comment on the bankruptcy, but 38 Studios said in a statement that it tried but failed for weeks to stay afloat. “After ongoing negotiations with the state of Rhode Island and potential investors and other interested parties, the company has been unable to find a solution to the current stalemate,” it said.

Filing Chapter 7 is more radical than Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization. It means Schilling, who disclosed for the first time in yesterday’s filing that he owns 83 percent of 38 Studios, won’t try to save the firm. Instead, he’ll ask a trustee to sell off assets and wind down 38 Studios.

The company laid off all 400 staffers at 38 Studios’ Providence headquarters and its Baltimore subsidiary, Big Huge Games, two weeks ago.

38 Studios, which Schilling founded in Maynard in 2006 while still pitching for the Sox, launched its first game, “Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning,” in February and had been developing another online fantasy game called “Copernicus.”

But 38 Studios ran out of cash even though Schilling recently disclosed that he sank $50 million of his own money into the firm.

The collapse leaves Rhode Island on the hook for nearly $116 million in principal and interest on bonds that the state agreed to back in 2010. Ocean State officials used the aid to lure 38 Studios to Rhode Island from Massachusetts last year.

All told, the firm’s filings listed $156 million in liabilities — including $1.5 million in unpaid wages owed to 383 workers — but just $21.7 million in assets.

Among the long list of creditors is Berkeley Investments, a Boston real estate investment firm that owns 38 Studios’ headquarters building at One Empire Plaza in Providence. Berkeley is out $10.8 million in lease obligations.

38 Studios also disclosed some $300,000 in liabilities for unsold homes related to relocation packages for seven employees.

Chafee, who opposed the 38 Studios deal when running for governor, said the company didn’t tell him in advance of its bankruptcy plans — but he wasn’t surprised. Chafee said he realized soon after 38 Studios informed the state in April of impending doom that the company lacked a plan “to get to solvency.”

Despite some afternoon rain, it's a gorgeous if cool night at the ballpark for Dodgers @ Mariners. The stands are empty for a Friday night, though.

Re: MLB Friday, June 8, 2012

I would have thought the Dodgers would have been no-hit already this year with the lineup they roll out there on a regular basis.

Nice moment for Seattle and the fans there. Too bad Millwood couldn't have continued in the game.

Overall league batting average is the lowest it's been in 40 years...there might be a record set this year for number of no hitters.

That was a fun game, Soriano just crushed those two bombs, I was surprised the Twins were able to come back again, but Willingham is seems to play with a great attitude.

Re: MLB Friday, June 8, 2012

It was fun to be at the park. Announced attendance was 22,082 but the number of people who showed up looked like significantly fewer.

It was easy to lose sight of the no-hitter due to the pitching changes and the closeness of the game. It especially got tense when rookie flamethrower Stephen Pryor walked two guys (in the 8th, I think). They were bunted over, then the next batter hit a sinking line drive to left. Defensive replacement Chone Figgins made a diving catch (good play but not like he grabbed it inches above the turf--it was one of those "I'm diving but I'll catch it chest-high and probably could have stayed on my feet" things) and came up throwing so the runner held. The catcher had to jump for the throw, though, so he might have been able to score.

Ichiro has taken plenty of flak this year (and his first two singles of the night only raised his average to .264), but he generated the game's only run. He beat out a roller to second (his third hit), stole second off the left-hander without a throw, then after a BB scored on a single.

First game I've attended this year and it was a good one.
