In response to TrotterNixon's comment:
"I'm pledging to cut the deficit in half in my first term". -- Obama
It doesn't really matter if the Red Sox fire Valentine, unless they also fire Cherry. Hopefully, both Cherry and Obama will be have their jobs follow the jobs Obama wants to export.
Interesting comment to say the least. First off Ben has done a very good job, especially if he was even partly responsible for pulling off the largest salary dump in the history of this great game. What he does from this moment on remains to be seen.
As far as throwing Obama's name into the mix of wanting to send jobs overseas, you are stretching things even further. I'm one of those realistic people that know who really runs our country. It's an age group in congress that all have 25 or more years of making decisions that solidify their seat and wealth from year to year for doing basically nothing. So it comes down to a "bone head" like Romney who would "no doubt" be the next puppet for congress, or a guy who will continue to call the old dogs on their tired act.
In other words, it doesn't matter who our president is. One would continue fighting a wall of deadbeats while getting a few things done like removing our troops, while the other plays caddy to the old farts.
Lastly, there is Bobby V. who should be removed from Boston before next season. He just isn't the right personality for the job.
