Red Sox President and CEO Larry Lucchino appeared on WEEI's Dennis & Callahan Morning Show today and stated that the team will make "considerable efforts" over the winter to augment their 2015 starting rotation. Noting that the organization has the "wherewithal" to acquire that pitching talent, Lucchino is clearly sending a signal that Clay Buchholz, Joe Kelly and a bunch of kids is not going to get this team back to championship status. He also candidly stated that the Red Sox would not repeat the mistake of assuming that "many of our young players are ready for prime time." In addition, Lucchino revealed that the Red Sox tribute for Derek Jeter will only be one day (Sunday) and will be "tasteful and respectful".
