I don't know as much as some about baseball as some. I am not crazy about Valentine, but to me, the most embarassing thing that has happenned this season was the booing at Fenway yesterday. It is April, this guy was hired while Cherrington was interviewing other people. He has made some asshole statements, but for Chrissake I think Red Sos fans had more class. I was really taken aback and it bothered me all day.

I don't like the booing, but I really believe it's mostly displeasure with the way Tito was thrown under the bus. And that is boo worthy.

I disagree. I think that is why he is here.

???? He is here to get boos? I don't think he needs any ovation right now, and a some boos as the game went down the tubes wouldn't have been a big deal. But the loud loud continous booing, whenever he showed his face was, in imho, was innappropriate. I was embarrassed.

He's here to act as a magnet for the fans' anger and frustration. And then to take it with him once he's fired.

Yes, I'm feeling cynical today.

Looking at it from that angle, I'm with Macs - totally unfair.

Bobby seems to be a magnet regardless of why he was brought here, and he's not exactly lovable, but what goes around comes around and treating people fairly is one of those things that comes and goes.

I think turning on management goes back to early October and the trashing of Tito. Lucchino's never had any fans that I know of.

The jury's out on Cherrington.

I agree. Give the guy - and the team - some time. Fans don't boo their own team when they're struggling, they applaud them and show them that they are behind them.

It's tough to play well when you're worrying about the fans sticking a knife in your back.
