I'm still in shock and I'm more disgusted that it was all caused by a driver who wanted to beat a red light (let alone under the influence), which isn't all too uncommon to see anywhere, especially in SoCal.

Just puts things all in perspective. Nick pitched well last night and next thing you know something like this happens. Extremely tragic news for those involved and the families/friends who are grieving. Heart, thoughts, and prayers go out to all of them. RIP Nick.

Well that makes it worse, imo. It's one thing for someone to have a bad night and do something very, very stupid.\

It's totally different for the system to know this person is habitual and continue to allow them to put people at risk.

I would think they'll only cancel 1 game (vs Oakland that is), and play it later on in the year as a double header, like if it was cancelled by weather.
