I have said all along that it would extremely hypocritical if the Boston Red Sox are blaming the mutiny and unrest within its players on Bobby Valentine. The front office was the one which determined the players were in need of subordination and needed a no-nonsense person in charge. The players choice to undermine Valentine is and has been unacceptable and though it’s very possible, the Boston front office will look stupid if they fire Valentine because players do not want to listen to him.
The reasonable solution has Valentine leaving the Red Sox this season, as one would ask why he would want this job anymore. He always wanted a chance to manage a team with deep pockets, but it certainly has not worked out the way he planned. I still think there is a chance Valentine returns, if he wants. But to this point, it seems he may not want to return next season.

Take Bobby Valentine's word for it -- the Red Sox have not checked out on this season. They had plenty of opportunities to during a nine-game road trip along the Pacific, but even after losing seven in a row, fought back against the Mariners on Tuesday night to stop the bleeding. On Wednesday, they'll turn to Aaron Cook in the hopes of heading back to Boston on a high note...
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. Back when I was attending a couple job interviews for a position as a writer and editor for NESN's new media department, one of the questions I was asked was what kind of content I would...
It's crazy that it took this long for most people to realize that Bobby Valentine isn't some incredibly talented manager and is, in fact, just an arrogant jerk. Even though players have hated him throughout his whole career and he couldn't coach in the Major Leagues for almost a decade, he's kept this persona as some lovable, goofy guy alive. He's goofy because...
Rays manager Joe Maddon joked with reporters and on Twitter about how Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine incorporated his name into his bizarre interview.
During Bobby Valentine's weekly interview with WEEI's The Big Show on Wednesday, the Red Sox manager didn't hold anything back. Valentine was open about how difficult the 2012 season has been by saying, "I think it's been miserable." The Red Sox manager also jokingly responded to one question by threatening to punch radio host Glen Ordway in the mouth if...
You could describe the Red Sox season with many, many words. Bobby Valentine would go with "miserable." The Boston manager was not in a particularly good mood on Wednesday afternoon during his weekly radio interview on The Big Show on WEEI. Valentine, who sounded like he has had enough of this season, was irritable throughout the segment. "This is what I chose to do...
Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine says he wasn't serious when he
threatened to ''punch'' a radio talk-show host in the mouth.
Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
ESPN analyst and former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling, in an appearance
on WEEI on Thursday morning, said he's shocked that Bobby Valentine is

Bobby Valentine did his weekly interview today on WEEI's The Big Show. Asked if he's 'checked out' of the season, V was none too pleased:

If there wasn't any doubt that Boston Red Sox skipper Bobby Valentine has lost touch with reality, all you need to do is listen to his interview on The Big Show with Glenn Ordway and Michael Holley on WEEI earlier this afternoon to confirm it.

New day, same old suck from the hometown team. But I will say this. They didn't go quietly.
The Toronto Blue Jays got out to an early 4-0 lead and then held on to beat the Boston Red Sox 7-5 in front of 37,156 rain-soaked fans. I say that only because there was a one hour and 28 minute rain delay before the game.
It was funny too because the one storm cell that passed over...
While everyone was watching the Giants-Cowboys NFL regular season opener and then sleeping, the Red Sox lost 2-1 to the Mariners out in Seattle. The team finished their nine-game road trip by losing eight of nine games. The team is off today before hosting the Blue Jays for a weekend series at Fenway Park, which is sure to be interesting as as the Blue Jays manager is John Farrell...
Coming off Tuesday's 4-3 win over Seattle, you would have thought the mood around the Red Sox might have brightened a bit.That was before Bobby Valentine made some rather bizarre comments during an interview on WEEI Wednesday afternoon. Seattle's Kevin Millwood held the offense to just 1 run on 4 hits and 3 walks over 6 innings in a 2-1 loss to the Mariners. For Millwood...
“State Of The Sox” is a weekly Friday piece detailing where the Red Sox currently stand in Major League Baseball and whether or not they can be successful going forward. We apologize if, at times, it comes across as a bit harsh.
Oh, to be the Baltimore Orioles right now….beautiful ballpark that doesn’t double as a “living museum,” a team that plays hard, strong pitching...
