John Henry opens up | Boston Herald

Some interesting stuff including this exchange.

Q. You have repeatedly stated that the Red Sox are not for sale. But let’s turn the question around: Not counting casual conversations that you, Tom Werner and Larry Lucchino have had with would-be owners, has a group approached you with a serious offer to buy the team? That is, one that raised eyebrows?

A. No. What I have had since these rumors first surfaced is a great number of investment bankers having called and a few people who reiterated what I’ve heard for a decade: “If you ever decide to sell, please call me.” These rumors were baseless. I’ve not had one partner in 11 years suggest thinking about selling the Red Sox, even though they haven’t received dividends. There’s a great, abiding love among the partners for the Sox. And Tom, Larry and I still look forward to driving into Fenway’s parking lot every day as much as we did at the beginning. Who wouldn’t want to work there? It’s a privilege.

But the longest and most passionate response from Henry was in his response to a question about Larry Lucchino. Not only did Henry defend the club’s president and CEO, but he took the bold step of forecasting that Lucchino will one day be enshrined in the Hall of Fame.(emphasis added)

Not an obvious choice for many Red Sox fans, to judge by the comments here.
