Lucchino close to contract extension with Red Sox

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- After an offseason of upheaval, in which the Red Sox were forced to go out and hire a new manager and a new general manager, they at least have the knowledge there will be continuity at the top for the forseeable future.

President and CEO Larry Lucchino is close to agreement on a contract extension that will keep him around at the head of the Red Sox organization for several years to come.

The Boston Globe was the first to report the story.
Lucchino, who recently observed his 10th anniversary with the club, will likely have a bigger role in baseball operations, at least for the near future, since Ben Cherington is a first-year executive. That means Lucchino's presence and power may be expanded somewhat as Cherington grows into the job and Lucchino does some supervising.
