Ben Cherington is well aware of the Red Sox' historic September collapse, but he doesn't think it warrants a total housecleaning.

"I don't think we need a fancier car. I think we've got to fix some things under the hood," he said.

Cherington believes the Sox have a talented core in place. He said that as painful as September was, there are still a lot of things to feel good about, including a number of players who are ready to get back to work to prove that the collapse wasn't reflective of the team's true talent and character.

Cherington also sat down with NESN's Tom Caron and Jerry Remy to discuss Carl Crawford's struggles, John Lackey's future and the team's managerial search.
