Bobby Valentine Fired; Do You Agree With the Call?

The Boston Red Sox fired Valentine after an unsuccessful year at Fenway Park.

The Boston Red Sox have fired manager Bobby Valentine after the team experienced the worst season in decades.

In fact, the 69-93 record was the team’s worst since 1965 and the first time the team has finished last in the American League East in more than a decade.

Valentine’s one season at the helm was full of losses and run-ins with players. Valentine, who led the New York Mets to the World Series in 2000, followed Terry Francona, a fan favorite who was dismissed a year ago after taking the team to two World Series titles.

We want to hear from you: Do you agree with the call? Was Valentine to blame for this year's horrible record? Who or what kind of manager would you like to see at Fenway Park?

Happened 14 hours after the LAST game. Should have happened 14 hours before the FIRST game. The guy was just a loser from the get go - and yet they let this stiff run for the entire season. The guy who should have been canned before Bobby V is Larry L....
