Curt Schilling questions character of Kirby Puckett in Hall of Fame rant Kirby Puckett has had his dirty laundry aired in public (at least in the media) on multiple occasions, perhaps most notably in this 2003 Sports Illustrated piece, three years before his early death.
It is a part of the Puckett story that most Twins fans either honestly don’t know about or choose to forget about — or, at the most, gloss over when thinking about the baseball hero.
The less-than-perfect side of Puckett the human, in fact, gets buried so deep that it becomes somewhat shocking when someone brings up his name in a negative way. More

Raiders’ David Amerson delivers at cornerback
NASHVILLE — The Raiders’ coaches finally made what looked to be an obvious move Sunday, and were rewarded more than they could have imagined.
Oakland benched struggling 2013 first-round pick DJ Hayden and started David Amerson at cornerback against the Titans.
Amerson “played great,” Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio said.
Amerson, a second-round pick in 2013, admits that he carries a chip on his shoulder after being cut by Washington.
At 6-foot-1, 205 pounds, Amerson has speed, a long reach and the dexterity to make plays on the ball when it approaches.
The coaching staff handles Hayden with kid gloves, and Del Rio said Hayden wasn’t necessarily benched.
Zach Randolph had 17 points and 11 rebounds to lead the Memphis Grizzlies to a 92-84 victory over Philadelphia on Sunday, sending the 76ers to their record-tying 18th straight loss to start the season.
