"It's hard on all of us," Cherington told reporters. "When the manager is in the middle of it every day and he's the one who has to answer the questions after the game every day, it's hard. When things aren't going well, that's hard. I feel for him. I'm sure, at times, frustration comes out. The truth is that he's working with a roster, some of which is we're finding out about guys. It's not as easy to write out the lineup as he thought it might be in spring training.
"That would be frustrating for anyone. Part of it is frustration boiling over when you're sort of the focal point of that and you have to answer the questions after the game. I don't know how I'd react if I was in that position. I've never done it. I can imagine it's tough."
Does Cherington not realize that he is the one that created this situation? Is he really that stupid or does he know exactly what he has done?
This poster feels that BC has deliberately thrown BV under the bus, doing whatever it takes to send him packing. He never wanted Valentine and has manipulated the situation to where he takes none of the blame. As a matter of fact, he looks like a hero by shedding shedding all that payroll. so what if we lost our most productive hitter, we got rid of Beckett and Crawford.
