In Response to Re: Bobby Valentine WILL be here in 2013
Keep Valentine. I almost never post on the Sox board but those who would have kept the poison pill players over the manager can't see the real problem. This same lazy, self entitled behavior happened last year under Tito's watch as well... and the players loved that guy? Time for tough love, Bobby is the guy to administer it. Correct. The Red Sox owership has just begin the Chapter 11 process. Valentine isn't young, but his contract runs one more year and he should finish the dirty job he was hired to do. Break up the frathouse. AGon was a falsely projected scapegoat, as there is no way he ran the new frathouse he walked into in 2011. AGon was sacrificed to get rid of two serious problems, Beckett and Crawford. The entire GM nonsense and cleanup has been embarrassing, but at least Beckett is gone. The Red Sox need to be ready to bring in a young manager for 2014, as it's unlikely Valentine will have the energy to continue after finished up the hazmat job he was hired to do. No valid value reason to fire Valentine, with one year left on his short contract. Simply let him finish the ground zero clean-up and wait until the end of 2013 to decide on who the manger will be for 2014 and forward. If Valentine has the team playing to it's potential, extend him. If not, thank him for the dirty work that Tito couldn't or wouldn't clean up.

After spending the last year screaming about CRAW - BURY, softy doesn't even have the STONES to step up and salute THIS GM for pulling the trigger. After whining & moaning, crying, gnashing of teethe about Beckett, he remains his sackless self, & can't step up & congratulate THIS GM for ridding this team of the Beckett contract.
YES! We all know A-Gon is a great player, & his absence will be felt, but without unloading him the Red Sox are saddled with Beckett & Crawford for the next 3 & 5 years. This $$$$ will buy us at least 4 - 6 high value players!!! PERIOD! Of course that requires smart buys & GOOD trades! Lackey still must go, & that will likely cost some money? Maybe BC can have lightning strike twice????
Softy would bash the Red Sox if their GM was the guy ridding the world of Smallpox!!!
This is the single best move in the last 3 years! It's a reset. THAT's ALL IT IS! NO MORE!!!! NOW........ Will the fans be patient in the rebuilding process. We know softy will grasp at straws, desperately looking for something HE GOT RIGHT! Whining ad nauseum like a little girl....... Who's gonna join the soft one!?
Real RS fans! We will pray for sound baseball decisions! Softy will bi tch & moan, pretending to be a RS fan. I thought I didn't like Nancy Drew??? Softy takes the cake.
