  • Curt Schilling compares Muslim extremism to Nazis

    Curt Schilling took on the Internet – and the entire Muslim world – on Tuesday and lost. Badly. The two-time National League strikeout king took to Twitter to voice his concern over Islamic extremism. He posted a photo of Nazi leader Adolf Hitler with the words, “It's said only 5-10% of Muslims are extremists. In 1940, only 7% of Germans were Nazis. How'd that go?” The 48-year-old also tweeted, “The math is staggering when you get to true (numbers).” Schilling, who won three World Series championships during his 20-year MLB career, deleted the post after 10 minutes. Currently working with...

    Two years ago, long-time Phillies catcher Darren Daulton was diagnosed with glioblastoma, a form of brain cancer the American Brain Tumor Association characterizes as being "highly malignant." He had successful surgery to remove a pair of brain tumors in July 2013. Daulton, now 53, has undergone extensive chemotherapy and radiation treatment in the 19 months since the surgery. On Thursday he passed along some good news:

    One of Andrew Feffer's jobs is getting Washington Nationals fans to come to the ballpark. But this year, the team's chief operating officer has another goal: keeping Philadelphia Phillies fans out. Since the baseball franchise left Montreal for Washington, D.C., in 2005, the Nationals pastime has been losing games. They haven't yet had a winning season. Meanwhile, their rivals 125 miles up I-95 have been one of the best teams in the game. With seats in Philly's Citizens Bank Park hard to come by, Phillies fans have taken to descending on Nationals Park whenever their team pays a visit. Two...

These Giant Davids beat the big, bad Philadelphian Goliath with a less-than-Bunyanesque eighth-inning home run that came through the courtesy of Phillies manager Charlie Manuel leaving in a righthanded reliever to face a shortstop who'd hit all but two of his 24 regular season bombs against righthanded...

    The New York Yankees this year had a payroll of $206 million. The San Diego Padres had a payroll of $37 million — and neither team won its division. So who had the better year? I think it was Paul McCartney who once said, “I don’t care too much for money ‘cause money can’t buy you a World Series championship, although it can pretty consistently get you into the playoffs.” He’s right. Lance Berkman is making $14.5 million this year. That’s more than the combined salaries of the Indians’ entire starting lineup in their last game of the season —...
