    Bravo to John Henry. Telling it like it is. Thanks for telling the media to sh-ove their rumors and wild speculation. The media makes big money by inventing stories and starting nonsense rumors. Thanks again John. Ditto to the assinine talk radio hosts and their callers. A bunch of pouting adolescents.

    There's no way they can fire him after a year. They fired Francona and dumped everything that happened last year on him, and supposedly Larry Lucchino wanted Bobby Valentine, even if the GM wanted to at least consider other options. Firing him just looks bad on them in so many ways.

    Now, it's not working, and I'm sure Valentine knows it. So I'm expecting him to "resign" for personal issues, or family issues, or some other saving face method of making a change.

    So, are you saying I'm getting the middle finger from you? Thanks.

    Motown, Sounds like you didn't read the email from John Henry.

    Glad he gave Bobby V a vote of support, but to say the players have hustled all year?   Beckett????

    That's how I see it too, Motown. Valentine looks like he wants to anywhere but there. That's how they should have handled it with Francona. live and learn.

    "To blame Bobby Valentine for the Red Sox being .500 at this point in the season is simply wrong. A lot has been written about injuries to key players this year. The impact of that on the Sox this year should not be discounted.

    "In baseball, managers often get too much credit and too much blame for what happens on the field. That seems to be a constant. There is often the thought in organizations, 'This isn't working so the manager needs to go.' But an organization is much more than the field manager. We all share responsibility for the success and failure of the Boston Red Sox. We are not making a change in manager.

    It isn't going to happen until the offseason and it will be a "mutual decision".

    If I were a closet Yankee fan, I would become an expert also at that photo-editing software and use it to make little of Red Sox players and FO staff and Bobby Valentine. It is called trolling with photos instead of words. Pure genius.

    Glad you took my suggestion (about typing with your middle finger. Use both for added effect). I wonder what Henry DOES think is the reason for the failure of the team this year.

    John Henry should send Tom Brady or Bill Clinton over to the Red Sox clubhouse and give them a motivational speech. 

    Whatever it takes to jump start the team.  lol

    I am fine with Henry's email. I agree with Motown and the others that say Valentine will resign at the end of the season.
