Red Sox pitcher served papers by Yankees fan before start

Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game

“The Red Sox were very cooperative,” Cabral told The Post. “They asked me if I could serve these tomorrow because he was starting tonight. My position was, my client wants it served today, and that’s what I have to do.”

Cabral didn’t bother to hide the fact he is a Yankees fan. In fact, he proudly wore a Yankees shirt while he served Bedard the papers.

“When I walked in I was like, I’m a Yankees fan, but I’m not trying to (give you a hard time),” Cabral said. “I told him that and said, sorry, I’ve got to do this. But he said it was no problem. I handed him the copies of all the documents and he signed them.

“(The Red Sox) legal department was joking with me about it … they were saying, ‘That’s why you’re so adamant about doing it today … you’re a Yankees fan.’”

It's clearly affected Bedard in the early going. 2 IP, 25 pitches, two hits allowed (singles.)

Dude has ice water in his veins. What else would you expect from a big market pitcher like Bedard.

FTA:
Erik Bedard was served with papers in a child support case


Too easy.

Looks like it took him a couple innings to find someone to read it to him.

It finally must have hit him the 3rd inning when he gave up 4 runs.

Reverse lock.

I am curious how these support payments work, perhaps some here work in family law and can answer.

As the story says Bedard has earned as much as $7m per year and now "just" $1m. If child support is set today it might be set based on the $1m. But Bedard could be out of baseball earning almost nothing in a year or two. How easy is it to get the child support payments reduced to reflect current earnings?

Can't speak for all of the 50 states, but the couple that I am familiar with demonstrate that child support payments are based on very specific formulae, and the statutes actually spell out in great detail how the payments are calculated. I recall looking at this for a friend who went through a divorce, Courts can consider things such as a person's 'Ability to earn', and very rigid child support guidelines. They often contain grids which provide estimates based on 'low income' earners, 'middle income' and 'high income', etc. Modifications can be sought by either party via petitioning the court.

here's a what a support table might look like.

I assume this is case is in American jurisdiction.

I know Dave Foley is getting royally screwed by Ontario child support laws.

He could earn more if he wanted to.

Thanks Tulo, that is very specific, much more so than I thought.
