Former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling asked Rhode Island for additional help to save his video game company Wednesday, prompting state leaders to consider whether the firm is viable enough to justify further investment.
Schilling, an ESPN baseball analyst, briefed Gov. Lincoln Chafee and the state’s Economic Development Corp. board in a closed-door session.
Following the meeting, Chafee would not say what Schilling is seeking from the state. The governor said the question before state economic development officials was, “How do we avoid throwing good money after bad?”
Schilling declined to answer questions, saying only: “My priority right now is to get back to my team.”
Love those conservatives and their unbendable economic principles! When they come from such a pleasant, soft-spoken man as Curt Schilling, it’s all the better!
