The 2018 World Series champions are scheduled to visit Washington on Feb. 15. But the ongoing government shutdown has the organization reconsidering.

“We’ll see what happens,” Cora said Friday, via MassLive’s Christopher Smith. “There’s a lot of stuff going on right now as far as the government and the shutdown and all that. So we’ll see. And there’s a few things that have come up the last 10 days with Puerto Rico, too. It’s a topic that back home is huge.

“But like I said, if I go, I’ll represent Puerto Rico the right way. I don’t know what kind of platform I’m going to have if I go. It’s not that I’ve changed my mind. But we’ll see what happens in the upcoming days.”

If they do end up going, the Red Sox are not requiring its players to attend.

None of  this really matters. 

What does is that the government ends this shutdown so people can start collecting their paychecks.
