Curt Schilling’s company files for bankruptcy

This was pretty inevitable:

Former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling’s troubled video gaming company has filed for bankruptcy. The filing was made in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Delaware on Thursday.

Providence-based 38 Studios last month laid off its entire workforce. It also was more than two weeks late on a $1.1 million payment to the state.

And don’t forget the part about the houses the fired employees thought the company sold for them but didn’t!

Twins second baseman Brian Dozier entered Tuesday night’s action having hit safely in all 17 games this season and in 24 games consecutively dating back to last season. Sadly for him and for the Twins, that streak ended with an 0-for-4 performance against the Yankees.

Dozier grounded out in the first inning, flied out in the third, grounded out in the sixth, and grounded out again in the eighth.

Despite his streak ending, Dozier still has good numbers on the year. He’s hitting .291/.356/.494 with four home runs, 10 RBI, and 15 runs scored in 87 plate appearances.
