Quote of the day: Peter Abraham on dysfunctional Red Sox
In response to a report that certain Red Sox players tried to have manager Bobby Valentine fired, Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe emptied both barrels.

To review briefly ...
- Yahoo!'s Jeff Passan writes of what is in essence an attempted mutiny against Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine by certain players.
- Owner John Henry predictably issues a pro-forma denial.
And now here's Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe, dispensing with whatever pleasantries are left and unloading on what's widely perceived as a Red Sox clubhouse full of players who don't much care or, alternatively, care about the wrong things:
If Valentine gets fired, all it will be is more appeasement.
Then again, you might be doing him a favor. Then he can sit around for a season, collect on his contract and not worry about winning. In that sense, he would be just like the players he was given to manage.
