Damn can't rep you for that great rant Brye. Must spread.
I've somewhat followed the Red Sox this year due to fantasy (Aviles, Ellsbury, Crawford), and it's definitely not Valentine's fault. I blamed him early, but that was mostly in jest because I'm not a Bobby V fan. Injuries have ravaged that team and for them to cry about bullshit...I can understand your frustration. Plus Lester and Beckett have been pretty bad.
Buchholz is the one guy I've stuck with on this team. Him and Aceves are the only two I really like now and Buchholz is still one of my favorite players in baseball. I'm glad he's had success this year after a rocky start. Still an Ortiz fan but even he's done a few questionable things.
Buster Olney (I believe it was him) reported there were 17 guys at the meeting so I'm curious who else had something to say.
I understand that Bobby V probably wasn't the best idea for the team but he's been far less a problem than the players have been. Boston media can turn someone coughing into a headline story and that doesn't help much either.
According to some guy that is close to the Red Sox said that Pedy was upset at how he was represented during the meeting and that he blamed everyone for their suckiness. I forget his name but he was on MLB Network after the game.
