Really, can anyone here justify Ventura allowing Sale to pitch himself on to the disabled list earlier this year? That alone was a fireable offense. Can anyone explain the times Ventura has inserted a pinch-runner after a pitch or two has been thrown to the next hitter? Or how about the times he hasn't asked for a review after replays show the Sox would have won the appeal? This stuff is Mickey Mouse.
You said with a MVP candidate, a Cy Young candidate and an All-Star shortstop, it's embarrassing that they haven't been able to muster a .500 record.

That certainly implies you believe they should be .500 or better. Any team that is .500 or better is contending this year in a mediocre American League.
