    In other news, the Wayland Ladies' Auxiliary Croquet Team is so far undefeated at 4-0, going into an important conference tilt this weekend vs. Lincoln-Sudbury.

    he was far from the cause, but he did little to help


    here's hoping he blows up now that he's out.....i'd love to hear some dirty laundry, there's a lot of blame to go around

    Ha, I was thinking about posting the Bobby V. firing here as a joke, but someone did it in all seriousness.

    I thought the story would be that Rex Ryan announced that Tim Tebow would start at QB against the Texans this week.

    Valentine's firing is a real shocker! Did Ben Cherington do this on his own? Does Larry Lucchino know about this?

    Re: Breaking news... Bobby Valentine Fired!!!

    Compared to last year, this job is not quite the gem it used to be and they may find some guys reluctant to even interview....

    Clear the deadwood off the roster and grovel back and ask Francona to come back....How many times did Billy Martin manage the Yankees????

    L-S is no joke. I predict the Lady Warriors will be 4-1 after the weekend.

    They moved quickly, that is good.. now to hire someone who can right this ship.

    IMO every player on this roster is available for trade... put everyone on the block and see what happens..

    Has to be better than the clusterfock that we witnessed the past season..

    Who cares? The players suck and the locker room for the past two years has been about as bad as it gets. With or without Valentine, they're a chore to watch, and difficult to root for.

    They have to blow things up way more than just getting rid of Valentine.

    Bobby V made some verbal errors toward the end, but only after the team began to sink in the mire and when he had only Dustin and a bunch of minor league guys in the lineup.

    I have been a great fan of Sox for many decades, but have never been that big of fan of any of their managers. Nor do I like the current choices much at all. And I do prefer the Valentine type (smart, bulldog, and disciplinarian to a degree) to run a club that has always been tagged as a "country club" team.

    At least with Valentine the manager interviews were not predictable bores as was the case with his predecessors. Maybe Valentine is much more of big city manager--NY, LA (didn't he call Boston a provincial town and not a real city--that probably began the firing process)

    I say start at the top and fire the damn general manager--i hate these boy types running this club

    I came here to look at girls jumping on trampolines. Sadly, nobody has made that happen.
