Sox Looking to Bring Back Clemens
"'We had an internal discussion,' said Sox CEO and president Larry Lucchino, 'and concluded we should make an initial call to let the Hendricks brothers know we were open to discuss Roger's return if he should have interest in the Red Sox in 2006.'" -- 12.11, Nick Cafardo, Boston Globe

Lucchino Speaks: 'Restructuring' Announcement This Week
Red Sox CEO Talks about Theo, The Gang of Four, Beckett, Renteria, Manny...
and Palace Intrigue
GM in the Spring for Theo?
"Epstein's new title may not be permanent, however, with some indications pointing to his return to the organization's general manager position as early as spring training. The switch will largely depend on redefining the duties of president/CEO Larry Lucchino, whose role in the organization continues to be revamped in order to pave the way for Epstein's re-emergence."
"At one point, outside consultation was brought in to analyze Lucchino's role within the organization."
"Insiders suggest that Epstein sided with a group of Red Sox executives who were leaning against the Josh Beckett trade."
"Overpaying for center fielder Johnny Damon is also reportedly a concern of Epstein and his supporters, who seem to be targeting trades for Seattle center fielder Jeremy Reed and Cleveland's Coco Crisp as a backup plan. Lucchino, meanwhile, has been spearheading the Damon negotiations." -- 12.11.05, Rob Bradford, Eagle-Tribune
