Thank you for sucking so much, and this is what the feeling of victory looks like, you may not see it for a few more years

Should be completely over later today when they give Bobby V (sounds like a New Yorker name) the boot. Then we can pick up the pieces and go on sucking (but with a better liked manager). The dumb ass should of brought the Beer and Fried Chicken back to the club house in June and we'd be back in it.

I'd rather see Lucchino get the chair. The electric one.

Agreed, I don't think very highly of the owners and its obvious they know little about the game or how to deal with the players. Last winter when John Henry fell down the stairs of his yacht, parked in Boston Harbor, and hit his head and needed to be stretchered off and transported to MGH it all become clear that they were all drunken rich idiots. Bring back Tito and make him GM! (he's part of Jens family by marriage, we might be able to get tix cheap)

Firing valentine is like removing warts from a terminally ill patient. At least the body will look better in the casket.

Lucchino is the cancer that must be removed in order for the 'Sox to survive.

I confess I don't follow the Sox close enough to fully understand why he is the problem ? I do, however, very closely follow Liverpool Football Club across the pond and since the same folks who own the Sox own LFC, I'd love to know why he's a problem

He's a lawyer, who thinks he knows baseball. Think Jerry Jones, now you are on board.

What a season.

I'm still looking for ONE Red Sox fan who thought Bobby V was a good idea.


Classic story.

Bunch of rich guys buy sports team, spend some money to get talent.

Talent wins.

Rich guys think it was their skill that generated the wins.

Rich guys bring in "their" guys.

Rich guys no longer have winning team.

If you don't like it , buy your own team.



Only in sports can owners act like Russian Royalty and not expect bad outcomes.

I like rubbing in the Sux fans faces, and yes it i fun to see them lose. However good the race with the Birds was, it would have been better with the Sox. IMO it is the best rivalry in American sports.

Twas Lucchino that drove Theo away the first time, and he came back under some deal for a bit more control as a GM. That sore never healed, and it was a big part of why he left for the Chicago.

might as well bring back Dan Duquette and Jean Yawkey...Larry is just as bad.
