Awful news out of Boston. Obviously there is no sense in thinking about trivial baseball matters for the time being.
Also, as we’ve unfortunately learned over the past several years, misinformation often reigns at times like these. Please, do your best in the coming hours to refrain from passing along misinformation or being taken in by bogus charities and the like. And please be civil and respectful of others when discussing this awful news. People have died and lives have been ruined this afternoon.
