John Henry, Red Sox Won’t Fire Bobby Valentine During 2012 Season

 

Positive Step Forward

So while this season may still be in shambles with the remaining difficult schedule, Monday’s win showed the potential for positives to be drawn from a lost year. Adding to the support of the team was the front office defending manager Bobby Valentine earlier in the day. With the struggles of the team, the manager had been under plenty of scrutiny by fans and the media, but principle owner John Henry declared that the Red Sox “are not making a change in manager.”

So there will be some stability to the remainder of the 2012 Red Sox. While the team may very well continue to hover around .500 or even dip below that mark, Valentine will remain at the helm of the team, and perhaps strong performances from the likes of Crawford and others can bring more hope for a better 2013.

Of course, this isn’t the 2003 Red Sox. With a large payroll and an underperforming roster, the idea of waiting till next year doesn’t sit well with most fans.
