The Boston Red Sox hired Bobby Valentine thinking he would bring some order to a team that was in desperate need of some. Yet, 10 months and 92 losses later, the question now is do they have to replace him already to start winning again?
The entire 2012 season has been filled with non-stop drama for Boston.
Most of it has been of Valentine's own doing. But a lot of the issues carried over from their collapse last September, and the revelation that the Red Sox clubhouse was basically a free-for-all.
Bobby V was supposed to erase those memories. Winning would have done that. However, he's now overseen the worst season in franchise history since 1965.
Everything's pointing towards Valentine being fired after one year as skipper. We're going to look at a few reasons why that needs to happen if the Red Sox hope to turn things around in 2013.
