Red Sox Fire Bobby Valentine

Bobby V. Fired By Sox
In an official release from Red Sox Chief Operating Officer Sam Kennedy, the team announced the firing of Bobby Valentine this afternoon. Valentine was quoted as saying:

“I understand this decision. This year in Boston has been an incredible experience for me, but I am as disappointed in the results as are ownership and the great fans of Red Sox Nation. It was a privilege to be part of the 100 year anniversary of Fenway Park and an honor to be in uniform with such great players and coaches.  My best to the organization.  I’m sure next year will be a turnaround year.”

Here is the full official statement.
