Sox owners show up in Baltimore

Red Sox principal owner John W. Henry, chairman Tom Werner and CEO Larry Lucchino were in Baltimore on Thursday night for the conclusion of a three-game series against the Orioles. Lucchino appeared on NESN's television broadcast, and elaborated on his frustration with the media.

"It's probably a distraction, but I think a lot of these players are used to it," Lucchino said. "They're Boston-tested, so to speak. There's a lot of drama and melodrama associated with the Red Sox and the media going back a long ways. Ted Williams, Bill Russell and, of course, last September as well. I think it's a little unfortunate that we can't focus some more on the playing field and a little less on the melodrama, but it's part of the territory."
