A few more details.

Lou Gorman, who built three playoff teams in his 10 seasons as the Red Sox general manager, died this morning at age 82.

A family member confirmed to the Globe that Gorman died at 1:50 a.m.

The affable Gorman was the Red Sox general manager from 1984 to '93.

We'll have more shortly . . .

That would be an extremely random April Fool's day joke.

RIP Lou Gorman

RIP Lou. From all accounts, he was a gentleman who treated all he encountered with respect and consideration. Lou put together what should have been the first World Series Championship in decades, the 86 team. He also had the misfortune to be the GM while ownership tried to convince us that they were really a small market team that could not compete for high priced free agents.

Lou Gorman was a baseball man and a life long Red Sox fan.

God Bless.
