Red Sox principal owner denies his ownership of Liverpool takes away focus
I'm Henry should have to be spring training facility early this morning and the media about this time every year that this time it was certainly. A little different first -- he was alone in second rather than sitting in the formal interview setting -- was in the sun he opted to sit in the shape. Actually -- was at a picnic tables was very. Intimate experience if you will we hear from him now. As sitting at the picnic table with John Henry reads off our spring training conference. It may look like just another bright sunny day at Red Sox spring training but the man in this crowd isn't a player or the manager. It's Red Sox principal owner John Henry changing things up without the normal protection of -- owners Tom Werner and Lucchino Henry showed up alone. Answered every question including several about reports he's considered selling the team don't -- Made a lot of my. So it just doesn't -- If it if it was a driving factor yes it's just -- consideration the quality of our lives. Reports questioned yeah. It's only the stock because he also owns Liverpool FC another expensive team in a different country that requires a lot of attention. Things it did said. Repeated over retreat. Fairly news. Unless some -- in the -- I don't know where this distraction comes from them now imagine if I had nothing else to do. What do you think would be different.

And ratings being the driving force behind the -- signing it again Hendry rejected the notion. The left because. It's just yeah. It's ludicrous to say is. Signed any player since we've been. -- -- -- While there have any denials the owner did take responsibility for what four decision the hiring of former manager Bobby Valentine and lasted just one season on the job. -- -- -- -- -- -- But I think he should manage again. It's great manager for the right team. Couldn't just -- more. It didn't work in and out thanks -- only winning 69 games last season the owner is answering questions once thought unthinkable. How did the Red Sox win their fans back. We had a core philosophies. For a lot of years. Moved away from Losman. It's -- and last year and through his.
