CEOs step down all the time but, in this case, it is difficult not to read Larry Lucchino's decision to relinquish some of his reins with the San Diego Padres at season's end as a strong indication that the owners are hunkering down and close to getting serious.

In closing, Lucchino made it clear that his statement was the end of his reflection on Epstein's decision to leave.

BOSTON — Red Sox president Larry Lucchino thinks Boston made a "strong and concerted" effort to re-sign Johnny Damon and spoke to the center fielder's agent as recently as Tuesday, when he agreed to a preliminary deal with the rival New York Yankees.
Lucchino and co-general managers Jed Hoyer and Ben Cherington declined during a Fenway Park news conference to discuss details of their offer to Damon but conceded that the negotiations ended abruptly with the news Damon agreed to a $52 million, four-year deal with New York.

But unbeknownst to almost everyone within the organization, the relationship between Epstein and CEO Larry Lucchino, the man who'd brought Epstein to the Red Sox from the San Diego Padres, had been souring for more than half the time that Epstein had been in the job.
Lucchino had also opened up to Henry, about how he felt the criticism he often received from the press originated, at least in part, from within the organization.
Not long after Epstein's return, Lucchino suggested that, in order to cut down on confusion, Epstein should be the person from whom the media got their information about the team's baseball operations, and the general manager began parceling out news as he saw fit instead of eagerly feeding the baseball press's always-voracious appetite.
