Lucchino: Shaughnessy Piece 'Extremely Unfair'

Red Sox President and CEO Larry Lucchino appeared this morning on WEEI's Dennis & Callahan Morning Show and berated Boston Globe columnist Dan Shaughnessy for his article on David Ortiz. "In particular, I thought the presentation of the response presumed a guilt that was utterly inappropriate. David’s been tested at least six or seven times already this year. We’re talking about urine tests and blood tests. We’re probably talking about hundreds of tests over the last decade. And to ignore that body of evidence and to presume instead a presumption of guilt I thought was extremely unfair." Previously, another member of the NOG, Tom Werner, had also expressed his displeasure with the Shaughnessy piece.
