Lucchino: 'Didn't Get Job Done' On Jon Lester

Red Sox President and CEO Larry Lucchino appeared on WEEI's Mustard & Johnson Show this morning and admitted the Red Sox "did not get the job done" on Jon Lester. Lucchino's tepid admission of failure still had his typical 'shoulder chip' firmly in place. He stated that the free-agent process was a "roulette-game" and the team had hoped to keep Yoenis Cespedes and get Lester back—making last July's trade a big gainer. Amazingly, Lucchino also denied that Boston is slipping back into the Yankee-like big contract mode. Go figure.
