Ben Cherington, Larry Lucchino Encourage Red Sox Fans to Have Faith As Managerial Search Begins (Video)

Different offseason, same storyline.

For the second straight year, the Red Sox enter the offseason in search of a new manager, as the team parted ways with Bobby Valentine on Thursday.

Sox general manager Ben Cherington and president Larry Lucchino stressed the importance of creating a culture change going forward. And while they don't blame Valentine for all of Boston's struggles this season, they do know that the club needs a fresh start.

NESN's Tom Caron caught up with both Cherington and Lucchino shortly after Valentine's departure was announced. Check out what they had to say in the video above.
