Felger tells us that during John Henry's visit to 98.5 The Sports Hub, he stated point blank that 'Larry Lucchino runs the Red Sox'
Yeah I mean I Saddam directly -- you feel like a child I mean these guys complain about the schedule you pay them millions of dollars they whine and cry. And then you've given your got and they still go in the tank and you know what He would not to those players under the bus either He said. Look at it was a tough schedule they'd have to play that game we asked him till they were all beaten not I I felt bad form and you don't meet parsley talking now I sort of feel bad for John Henry that He feels that way I mean what employer wouldn't be angry. At the way his players respond to that even He bent over backwards. And yet you know He would express none of that -- today none of it. Yes if they seem more angry at you when Tony went to was players may be deep down privately. He does feel anger towards his players another bit of of real honesty was when He talked about Larry Lucchino and his contract situation. He feels fully that Larry's got a good comeback despite the fact that this contract runs out the end of the season. Yes credit to Tony mavs on this one that I think was a bit hard news right there where Tony had heard years ago that -- was up at the end of the eleven season. We asked John Henry directly about that He said -- -- up. But He expects little community here into the future. They have not hammered out extension yet but. Those conversations of sort of start to take place and that He does expect him to be here. You know for as long as Larry wants to be here and that was something that I thought also came out this interview John Henry set at one point point -- quote unquote. Larry Lucchino runs the Red Sox He said that very clearly Larry Lucchino runs the Red Sox salt. That's good to know going forward right all contracts all baseball decisions all non baseball decisions. Look at Larry Lucchino it was obvious today that John Henry. Still believes in Larry Lucchino strongly wants him here as long as He wants to be here and we don't really have a -- pitcher on any of this until today.
