Bobby V, Manager of the Year?

August 15, 2012

When the Red Sox win the World Series this year, we will look back at this day and laugh.

It’s been a rough season for the Red Sox manager.  When your boss has to come out and say that he’s not going to fire you, it’s probably a sign that things aren’t going too well at work, and, unfortunately for Bobby Valentine, the climate surrounding his struggling team doesn’t seem to be getting any better.  Thanks to the Yahoo Sports report, which claims that several Red Sox players met with owners on a few weeks ago to voice their complaints about Valentine.

This may be the most difficult day Bobby V has had to face, in a season plagued by injuries and bad press, and it will be interesting to see where the Red Sox go from here.  Chances are they will continue along their mediocre path and miss the playoffs.  The owners will then decide if they really want to stick with Valentine.

But, what happens if they turn it around?  Valentine has absorbed a lot of the blame.  It will be very interesting to see if he gets any of the credit.
