Cherington said he’s aware that Red Sox rooters aren’t satisfied.

“We are aware that we need to deliver more for the fans,” Cherington said. “If talk around team is a reflection how much the fans care, that’s certainly important, but we have to try to protect the decision-making process and do things for the right reasons and not react to the loudest of public sentiment.”

Cherington said the big trade with the Dodgers was not a message to the remaining players that it’s time to give up.

“There are reasons for players on an individual level to do the best they can. I don’t expect that we’re not going to have the effort,” he said. “I don’t think there’s any conscious lack of effort.”
