The Boston Red Sox had their worst season (69-93) in 47 years under the leadership of Bobby Valentine, who was dismissed from the team on Thursday, October 4. Below is a snippet of Valentine's reaction to the firing:
: "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."
