What happens when we assume...

You all know the rest.  I really wish that everyone who is casting stones please take a step back.  All this speculating, conclusion-jumping, and finger-pointing really makes me ill.  I tried reading through the comments after Larry's excellent post - but I couldn't.  

Look, people...  I know that we search for meaning in such times.  But we have to also realize that this Cardinal team is grieving.  Tony is grieving.  Hell, most of US are grieving.  And that's OK.  If Josh Hancock was drinking and driving - well, so what?  It does not take away from anything he did while he was on this earth.  

As Larry stated earlier:

"it's beginning to look as if hancock was driving drunk. should that prove to be the case, there will need to be a reckoning; but that, too, should wait until the man has been buried. there is no hurry to do anything right now --- to play good baseball, to catch the brewers, or to proclaim the moral of the story. just get through the day."

Please.  Give it some time.  

RIP Josh.
