Bobby Valentine is not the only part of the Boston Red Sox management team that needs to be placed on the hot seat moving forward. GM Ben Cherington has made some bold moves that free up some space for some free-agent spending, but what will he do with that money?
The potential to improve this team and make a playoff run is something that management needs to think about going into 2013. There can't be any bridge year; 2012 should be considered a building year.
Cherington needs to think about saving his job by making the postseason next year.
