Full Count » John Henry: John Farrell’s job is secure; Ben Cherington will be general manager of Red Sox for a ‘very long time’

A faith in the process.

“Why do I believe that? Because I have worked with a lot of people over the years and these are two people that are really likable, respected — they are committed,” Henry said. “They are very good at what they do. John has provided the kind of leadership that we need through a tough period and I just don’t think you can blame the manager for this. I watch these games. They’ve been painful games to watch. To me it’s not the manager’s fault the way that we’ve been playing. I just don’t see that.”

Fire Ben Cherington and John Farrell? That’s not going to happen - Sports - The Boston Globe

A GM has to balance short-term desires and long-term needs. Cherington is a patient sort who leans towards long-term part of the spectrum. Despite having three world championships in the last 12 years, the typical Red Sox fan, like most fans, falls firmly on the short-term desire side of the spectrum. When you add in a rabid, impatient press, that’s not a good mix.
