Accountability: No one wanted to take responsibility for what happened at the end of 2011. We had the manager fired, the GM walked, and the players were blaming everyone from “God” to Satan (i.e. – the media). Nothing changed in 2012. Bobby Valentine was an all-too-convenient scapegoat – even Larry Lucchino (pictured) said as much this week. The Red Sox were simply horrible on the field and completely dysfunctional off of it. Sadly, Lucchino will be back next season. So we’ll start at the top next season in this department, even though it’s ultimately on the players.
