Lucchino Q&A on Boston.com
If the Phone Don't Ring, That's GMs Calling Ben Cherington About Trades
I Told You Larry Lucchino Runs the Red Sox. Sincerely, John Henry

Comment From WTE: "Larry, the vast majority of Sox fans were shocked LA was willing to take on all those contracts. Were you at least mildly surprised as well that LA put your team in a strong position to re-load?"

Larry Lucchino: "Yes, when I received the initial phone call from the Dodgers alerting us to their new ownership's willingness to take on long-term commitments to high-priced players, I recognized it for what it was - the first phone call of its type I had ever received in my many years of baseball."
