Francona: Tragedy 'personal for everybody'

For Terry Francona, there is now distance from the Red Sox. Even so, as he watched the horrifying images documenting what took place near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Monday, the experience remained deeply personal, though Francona suggested that it was as much because of his natural human reaction to the events as it was because of his former residence in Boston.

Francona said that one his daughters called him repeatedly on Monday until she got through and informed Francona about the tragedy. Once the Indians manager was able to turn on a TV, he recognized immediately the area that he saw.

“It’s personal for just about everybody. Some of those views, you can see the church my daughter...

Ortiz: News of bombing, death 'devastated me'

PAWTUCKET, R.I. – The news hit home for David Ortiz, in more ways than one.

First came word of Monday’s bombing, near a place he had been just hours before. Then something came the next wave of emotion – a boy the same age as his own son, 8-year-old D’Angelo, had been killed.

“Last night I had problems sleeping just thinking about it and this morning I woke up, watching the news and I heard about this 8-year-old kid waiting for his dad at the finish line … dying … his sister getting hurt and his mom having surgery today. That devastated me,” said Ortiz following his rehab appearance with the PawSox at McCoy Stadium Tuesday afternoon.

“I put myself in the same place. It’s horrible. It’s horrible. It’s a beautiful nation and I think our President will get to the bottom of this and make sure this country goes back to...

Victorino: Indians/Sox choice was down to wire

Shane Victorino was coming off the worst season of his career. But when he reached free agency, it didn’t feel like it. The 32-year-old encountered considerable interest in multi-year deals from multiple teams, with two positioning themselves as his most aggressive suitors.

He ended up signing, of course, with the Red Sox, who gave him a three-year, $39 million deal. However, he only landed in Boston after giving considerable thought to the possibility of joining up with the Indians, who had a four-year, $43 million deal on the table.

Cleveland made a strong pitch to Victorino, suggesting that he was part of an offseason strategy that would...
