Ben Cherington cracks a good joke on Twitter

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.
