Who didn't see that coming? The Red Sox offseason will be interesting just like ours.

Doing it now so they can go after Blue Jays manager John Farrell before the playoffs start, supposedly.

Not at all surprising. Now, we wait for Guillen's firing.

Edit: Valentine Says Coaches Undermined Him

This seems like a candidate for the most obvious manager dismissal of all time.

It was a stupid hire in the first place.

As we know, it was a mistake from day one. I think in the right environment, he can still be a good manager. Perhaps a younger, less established team needing the personality and instruction.

Red Sox go 7-20 the last 27 games for the 2nd year in a row.

Maybe the Red Sox should give Ozzie a try.

Valentine was a horrible hire, yet they beat us pretty badly this year. Ugh!
