FT. MYERS, Fla. (AP) - Red Sox principal owner John Henry reiterated his intentions Monday that he has no plans on selling the franchise.
Meeting with the media at JetBlue Park a day before Boston's pitchers and catchers report for spring training, Henry spoke on several matters, but was adamant about keeping the rebuilding Red Sox, despite reports to the contrary.
``You just don't get an opportunity to own something like the Boston Red Sox. As long as we can do it, the three of us are committed to being here,'' Henry told reporters, while acknowledging team president Larry Lucchino and chairman Tom Werner. ``These thoughts that we're somehow selling, those are just not true.''
For the second time in as many seasons, Boston will open camp with a new manager. John Farrell replaced Bobby Valentine after the Red Sox finished 69-93 last year, 26 games behind the New York Yankees in the American League East.
