David Ortiz is leading the Red Sox in just about every offensive category, he’s clearly been their MVP so far this season (crazy how we all thought he was washed up 4 years ago).

Former Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling said Friday that the collapse of his 38 Studios video game company has probably cost him his entire baseball fortune, and he placed part of the blame on Rhode Island officials, including Gov. Lincoln Chafee.

NESN Nation's Dan Duquette couldn't take off and go to Wrigley, so he did the next best thing and wandered around the NESN offices in an attempt to spoof the famous museum scene from...
