Red Sox Plan to Fire Bobby Valentine

File this one under "not a shock to anyone", but, according to the entire free world...the Boston Red Sox are planning on relieving Bobby Valentine of his duties as soon as the season comes to a close.

This, of course, comes after the manager led the Sox to their worst record since Franklin Roosevelt was in office. 

And, true to form, Valentine looks to be leaving BeanTown with guns blazing, saying in an interview before Wednesday night's finale against the New York Yankees that his coaches weren't loyal to him throughout the season.

Asked why, Valentine said, "You asked me what I feel. That's what I feel."

Valentine was then asked by WEEI's Glenn Ordway if he felt he was undermined by his staff, to which he responded "Yes." Asked why, Valentine again said, "[It's] just what I feel."

Something tells me Red Sox fans would just like to hit the reset button on 2012 and take a Mulligan.

The reason Bobby Valentine was hired is because ownership is spineless when it comes to personel decisions. They had a clubhouse full of malcontents and whiners and instead of laying down the law they brought Valentine in to do their dirty work for them. He accomplished his task, weeded out the overpaid leeches and now he'll be vilified by ownership, fired and made the scape goat. That's why the Boston Red Sox continue to be a third rate organization.
