Red Sox GM Ben Cherington wants to prove that he–not CEO Larry Lucchino– is “running the team” now and that the 2012 Drama Sox Summer–produced by ego maniac Lucchino, when he foisted his old friend Bobby on the team– is over.
Cherington must stick a fork in Alfredo to prove he–not Lucchino– is The Godfather

About the Author
Baseball is my life: writing, coaching, announcing, umpiring, reading. I am a registered member of the Red Sox Nation and enmeshed in the team on a daily level, on the internet, on the phone, and at the hardware store. In 1963 I was a Sports reporter at the Syracuse Herald-Journal; I covered Syracuse University sports, HS football and basketball. I was a reporter at the NY Journal-American (1964-65). After 32 years on the English department faculty (1968-2000) I took early retirement to spend more time with the love of my life...BASEBALL ! [BTW, I served as play-by-play announcer for the games that were broadcast on Viacom cable.] Since retiring and moving to Maine in 2000, I have coached, managed, umpired, run fantasy baseball teams, and posted often in websites and blogs. Currently I am the Pitching Coach at the local HS and I umpire at the lower age levels. [55 years of umpiring and counting!] "Baseball is not a matter of life and death...it's more important than that."
