In response to georom4's comment:
any club that does that is seriously deranged...this is a baseball team - not a nation....maybe the excessive secrecy is limiting the ability for the sox to improve...seems like these yes men in charge want a good brand - not a good baseball team.....
Every company does this. Can't recruit employees, reveal trade secrets, work for competitors under certain conditions, badmouth the company, etc.
Further, for a little more money, you can't sue for any reason.
They have a standard separation agreement. It's kind of funny. I've seen this a couple of times. Literally, a check in one hand, and a release in the other.
You might need to get out more.
you know even less about business than you do baseball....it is common practice of large companies to actually ask their disgruntled, resigning, leaving employees to express their honest views about the organization in order to figure out what wrong and right...thats called honesty and you cant improve without it....i have clearly stated that the secrecy of this organization is an imprediment to improvement....they practice groupthink and circle the wagons to protect themselves and the "brand".....trying to better the team? not so much....ho else can one describe those rambling, self-serving, non informational "press conferences" after a manager's firing....Joey thinks this makes a team successful.....their insulated paranoia the last 5 years says otherwise....we have the antithesis of an open organization where merit /talent trumps all....instead we have a ship full of rats who will say or do anything to protect #1...
btw if valentine were smart he would simply sign a book deal that would expose the Sox for what they are...a dysfunctional, unlikeable fraud of an organization...he would make much more than his hush money and actually help destroy this culture of idiocy that was responsible for failure....let's hope he does....
