Red Sox management tried in vain to stop A-Rod from going to the Yankees

Sensing a public relations disaster with their fans, Red Sox President Larry Lucchino tried to get Commissioner Bud Selig to cancel the trade for Alex Rodriguez struck by the New York Yankees and Texas Rangers, according to the New York Post's Joel Sherman.

It was Lucchino who issued a combative press release after the Red Sox comically and miserably failed to get the sport's best player on their team. He is a big reason (not the only reason) why the Red Sox weren't able to get the slugger. The Sox brass are beside themselves that they lost another p.r. battle to the Yankees.

Lucchino hates to lose to what he calls the Evil Empire. Larry, the Empire struck back.
