Editor's note: NESN.com is going to tell the story of the 2012 Red Sox in Bobby Valentine's words. Each game day, we will select a Valentine quote that sums up the day for the Red Sox. The Red Sox will be relying on more reinforcements. After the Pawtucket Red Sox finished their season by claiming the Governor's Cup on Friday, Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine indicated the team would likely recall "one or two" more guys to the major league roster. That's because, according to Valentine, his current corps just isn't cutting it. Since the group has lost nine of...

  • F U valentine, you caused the departure of many of the veterans on the roster because they didn't want to play for your sorry ass. And if boston brings this clown back Big Papi is gone too. Go back to Japan you moron.
  • Bobby V is yet another of those players who should have rode off into the sunset. If he was ONLY half as good as he thinks he is, he would be outstanding. Granted many of the RedSox players are/were Divas, but making that work is why Bobby V takes in the big bucks. He needs to stop pointing his finger and look into a mirror to find the root cause.
  • Wake up Boston fans! Start putting the blame where it belongs......with the over paid babies of the Red Sox and MLB. Their guaranteed contracts are what causes these issues. They should be paid for performance not for what they once may have done. While I am not a big Bobby V fan, he is being paid peanuts to put up with the childish attitudes of ballplayers with NO pride. The veterans can blame themselves along with management, Theo and Francona for the issues that exist. Francona condoned the atmosphere in the clubhouse and it bit him in the butt. When Bobby V joined the team, I think he should've been given a playpen and some binkies to pass out to the players! IF you don't want to play the game, leave your contract at the door and go home. Save us all the misery of listening to your whining about how bad you have it......
  • Time for the team to put up or shut up. It's ridiculous to hear the veteran players whine about everything when they make millons of dollars every year. I would rather watch the young kids get a chance. At least they appear to have pride in what they are doing.
