Logjam Larry

Reports out of Chicago indicate that Red Sox President and CEO Larry Lucchino is playing the "bad cop" in the Theo Epstein compensation negotiations. Some are speculating that Lucchino is doing everything he can to frustrate Theo's desire to move on—sort of a final skirmish in their decade long battle. With yesterday's guerrilla radio interview by John Henry, it looks like the counter-revolutionary PR initiative from the NOG is in full swing. Who knows, next we might see Tom Werner threatening to bring in Roseanne to kick-off Fenway 100.
