Perhaps the worst kept secret in baseball, the Boston Red Sox will fire maligned manager Bobby Valentine once the season is completed.
CBSSports.com Jon Heyman reports that the Red Sox will make the move as soon as the regular season is over and could be made as soon as tomorrow. Heyman reports that the move is expected within the next couple of days.
General manager Ben Cherington declined to comment of the report.
Valentine told reporters today that he "had every opportunity to succeed and didn't.", according the YES Network's Jack Curry.
Under Valentine's reign the Sox have underachieved and as a result the team shipped out last season's prized pickup, Adrian Gonzalez, and became the first Red Sox team since 1966 to finish a season with 90+ losses.
