"It's kind of it's opening day, which is kind of high holy day. Anyway, and it makes it a more fun event for everybody. Larry at part of the event is is a mural where it's called an interactive mural outside of forty seven brand's Red Sox team store in Arthur's way. What exactly is an interactive mural? Question. I take it makes people can sign and and their goals or points of view with respect to the Red Sox or the Jimmy fund on that mirrow on on his way. Right, right. Right across then way park on jersey street. Yeah. That yet to kind of remind yourself now, it's jersey street easier for people who grew up, I guess when it was jersey street, and then it reverted old person here, and but for me my whole life. It's thirty Jaki. Now, it's back to jersey. So I'll get it down. Eventually I'm going to screw it up for a long time many absolutely which outing Larry Lucchino here on Boston Herald radio. Larry mentioned also another title that I forgot to mention was chairman of the Pawtucket Red Sox. How's that going? How's the move to Worcester, which is gonna take place in a few years? How's that all proceeding it go go? Along pretty well. I mean undertaking a massive effort as we are with the city of a voice there to build a ballpark and a development project right in the heart of what's there? There are necessarily a lot of different cats can demands and issues to deal with but we've got a good collaborative relationship with the city, and there's a level of enthusiasm in Worcester. That's really quite remarkable fiftieth year Rhode Island, and we already we tend to sort of celebrate bird island down here. Celebrate things at McCoy. Because we've been here. The Red Sox have been here in one form or another for fifty years, and we wanna do that here. But at the same and we recognize that long-term future is going to be up in central mass. And they're gonna be active into businesses, really one. One is the keeping the team on track here in two thousand nineteen McCoy and. And marketing and selling cetera to the folks of Rhode Island and the PawSox nation, which also goes much about the twosies as well. But while at the same time, we move ahead with innovation. So ideas, creative thoughts about what new. This is the seventy eight year of McCoy stadium. Mccoy stadium. So it's done its job and service that community quite well. Now, it's going to be. A new facility I've been what's there? And so we want to celebrate the tradition history. We've had here in Rhode Island as well as make sure that we don't screw it up there and Ramos Larry looking at the major league club and the Red Sox. They obviously they're coming off of World Series their best record in franchise history. They really ripped through the postseason only losing three times. And now to start the season they are doing. Okay. But the bigger news. The big picture news is they extended Chris sale to a five year hundred forty million dollar contract. I'm curious for someone who's been in the room. How do you deal with these sort of contract extensions? How do you weigh? The pros and cons of giving a player especially a pitcher an extension on their contract rather than waiting out to see the season. You're in the negotiating talk to your baseball. People your coaches and scouts and your office. People long enough to know that there is a consensus that the team wants and needs his player or a five year period or more. And then it becomes a question of. Checking what he receives to be the market in what you perceive to be the markets and negotiate from there to usually. When you get to five year contracts or second Senator to be long term. You. You have to their careful the player has right? Body type and right attitude as well as the right track record to America kind of time commitment because member unlike your contractor, my contracts. Thanks, guaranteed against just about everything and to. Player is hit by a bus forbid players state would would get them the money and the contract. So it's something to be careful about. But it's the layer land now in baseball, and you cannot. Avoi- making these commitments see question, it guests are you prepared enough to know that this is the right person the right personality, the right? Doing to invest in. And I think all those questions where yes. Larry, I'm curious because you you think five years is a long term commitment in this. I'm wondering what your thoughts are on those mega deals for Manny Machado and Bryce Harper. Ten and thirteen years if five is long, what do you think of thirteen? I think it's like an eternity. But it's again, it's. Of the marketplace. Team. They have to do that in order to secure the services of a player who's actually from another organization. Mention both of those players. Chaddha and Harper both paint from other organizations to their new organizations. Nineteen has got a stretch and stretch and get I don't like them too long. But. You know, that's an individual judgments that teams have to make when they look at their future and their prospects. And where they fit into the scheme of things over time talking about the sale contract, obviously, you were in the room take us through the process of what it was like five years ago when John Lester was a pending free agent. Get a guy with someone very much wanted to have. And there was this agreement about what the. Marketplace. With. There for him and say about much more elongated process than the more more efficient sales sale process. Do you think at that time that there were any reservations that maybe he wasn't the right personality? Even though we've been here. Seven eight years that you thought maybe it was time for him to move on or keep crews could pitch in Boston. And and was a part of the community and could then progressive here for several more years. I think that assessment was made. But again, I don't want your for your listeners. The forget about the rally for cancer. Of course, not talk about that. Larry, we obviously you hear talk about that. We wanted more. Sure. Absolutely. We've got plenty of time for you. Yeah. Just kind of give us a whole paint the picture of what it's going to be like Tuesday. And just talk about what you're. Doing with the Jimmy fund, which is obviously such an incredible just incredible organization here in the city that I think it's touched every it talk about the Jimmy fund as a whole but more particularly into his day. Talk about Jimmy fund. It say. Been affective light for people in this area for well since nineteen forty eight. So it goes back a long way and the Red Sox affiliation with Gary good back almost as long. They don't remember cited as Boston brings on charity and Red Sox immediately adopted is when Braves left the Boston to go to Milwaukee. It's a very special connection to the Red Sox. As a result of those seventy year concerning the players are actively involved in it, the fans are actively involved in it that people who live in town, even they're not baseball fans that are actively involved in it because it's such a. A strong and. Unique institution. It is a cancer center that treats pediatric cancer. But also treats adults as well. And they say can be fund is focusing on focused on raising money in a million different ways that have golf tournaments people remember passing that in the movie theaters years ago. There are lots of different ways rally for cancer. It's just opening days way of time this spirits and excitement of opening day, which knowing when it's really quite something. It's a I've been in four different cities now in my life in baseball. And I would say that this spirit and the support and the breath of that sphere and support in Boston is like no other city in America. And so that we can. Take opening day and further expanded to fun and. Just amusement of seeing people and they spell Red Sox tire on opening day and join that with an effort to do good. But making a team donation to the to the Jimmy fund this rally, and by the way, the mission that that the teams that prevail. And do well to especially well makes different contributions. There'll be a couple of winners selected, and they will have come to their workplace at school. They Red Sox player who will thank them for their special effort on opening day. Larry Lucchino, chairman of the Jimmy fund. Danafarber trustee president and CEO Emerson of the Boston Red Sox and champion of the pod. Tuck Red Sox again rally against cancer dot org tied in with the season opener Tuesday against Toronto. Larry's yeah. The do it over again say maybe I don't know forty five years ago. Would you prefer to go to become a sports agent at that point seeing how big the contracts are now? No, okay. Prefer to been a center fielder shortstop? I know. You were good player. Right. A pit an adequate player. Yeah. That was years ago. But no, I would not have wanted to be sort of an eighteen players. There's some good ones out there. I don't deny that. But it's not for me. I love the game itself and the organizations and the and I'd rather be on that side of the table. Sure. Acceptive I'd like to be the rookie bets within the next couple of that's gonna pay day for the requirements for that. Yeah. There's some good money because I'm thinking probably ten three fifty. Plus. We'll get him signed great. All righty. Thanks so much. Larry take. Thanks, larry. All right. Thank you. Larry Larry Lucchino again of the Boston Red Sox. Not just to the boss. He's got a lot of title titles. Yeah. No, probably add more before. Titles. There's a lot of titles. That's awesome. I barely have one. You know, he was looking into doing the baseball day. He's gonna get any Super Bowl. And he's got a final four watch. We didn't know what they gave. You just assumed it was a ring not anymore. Y Nike contract. You get a a ring for winning your conference championship. Now. At least the Oregon play do that. Because you can't give gifts. Anyway, I know it's weird. But all my all my friends who are on the football team when they would they would get them. There's loopholes right? So when you go to a bowl game, you get bowl gifts from sponsors. Definitely you can keep those. So the ring qualifies sell them. No, no, don't you can't hold onto this selling memorabilia attack their own great God that was no tragic. Trout park. Spend it for crazy in the NFL not from call. I mean, you got kicked out. He got suspended from the end of like selling autograph cleats for tattoos. Yeah. No can't do that. So damaging unbelievable. And I told you about the rugs. Keep it online. But yeah, no interesting stuff with Larry. I know he wants to push back against the lesser stuff. And I get it. That was a tough moment for them. You know, let's company line. Now they wanted him here. But I mean, they really realistic thing is they low balled up out of him, and he left because of it unless they had already signed Padro earlier. Right. So maybe they just thinking at that point that look he's a he's a hometown guy. So he's going to take less to stay here. And that's not necessarily the case with everyone. It's the case was into guides. Right. Zana Bograd said fine six years one hundred twenty million dollars. I think it's a really good deal for the Red Sox. He's got some good things in that deal because he can opt out after twenty twenty two so good deal for bowl teams..
