Is Valentine the answer?




  1. A card sent on St. Valentine’s Day, February 14, to a person one loves or is attracted to.
  2. A person to whom one sends such a card or whom one asks to be one’s sweetheart.
  3. The number one topic of conversation in Boston right now.

This might be a short question. But it’s the one that has created the most conversation. Should the attention be on or off the field? Books and movies like moneyball might say yes. But when the score of the game is in your favor, this wasn’t the manager playing. 

But even so, I might argue that the countless hours put in from the coaches to fine tune these players might be a key to success. 

Right now, the Boston Red Sox are a sinking ship. At the bow of this ship is Bobby Valentine. The crew that once worked in harmony is rioting. But nothing can happen until an agreement can be made. Until then, the water will continue to fill the boat. 

I don’t necessarily think that this can be blamed on anyone. This, honestly, is a thing where a team needs to be a team. The Red Sox are a prideful organization – with 7 world series to their name and (or were) the prime location for many free agents. 

The mindseton the team may be hard to go through though. The team has shown large proportions of disrespect. They hadn’t really given Bobby a chance. And while things may look bleak, right now, there is no answer. Except for this; Win today, because yesterday is done.
