Well the Red Sox certainly wasted no time on that. The Bobby V era has come to an abrupt end in Boston. The club’s first move of the offseason came just hours after their last game of the dreaded 2012 season. No press conference or build up. Just a “Breaking News” announcement tweet via through Twitter. And just like that, Bobby V is a memory, one that will hopefully soon be forgotten.
Although I certainly think he played a role in the lack of success this season, I can’t put all the blame on him. This team was plagued when he took the helm. Granted he didn’t do much to fix it, it shouldn’t all be on his shoulders. But I’m not going to get into all that. Bobby V’s time in Boston has been up for a while and frankly I’m sick of hearing about it. Finally it will be put to rest. Regardless, the Red Sox clearly need change, and hopefully this is the first of many changes they make so we can finally enjoy watching baseball again in Boston.
