Ben Cherington took questions from fans on the Red Sox twitter account @RedSox this afternoon.
This exchange was a good one:
@RedSoxRedShoes: Have you checked the secret compartment under Theo's desk yet? I heard that's where he keeps the emergency whiskey.
Cherington: No whiskey but I did find the key to Carmine ... he had kept it hidden from all of us j/k
Not bad, Ben.
On a serious note, it's good to see Cherington communicating directly to fans and he's been very accommodating with the beat writers, too.
