Felger and Massarotti are broadcasting live from the Ace Ticket Studio and are discussing the recent state of the Boston Red Sox.
Yesterday, the Sox fired pitching coach Bob McClure. What does this firing mean to the future of Bobby Valentine in Boston? Why fire McClure now?
How bad was the relationship between McClure and Bobby Valentine? Who’s to blame for the bad relationship?
“This is the part that, dare I say, concerns me. Is this some sort of indication now that Valentine’s got a chance of saying? I don’t know,” Mazz said. “Is it possible? Doesn’t that concern you? I was a little more certain before yesterday that Oct. 4, the morning after the season ends, [it would have been] clean-up time. Bobby V goes, coaching staff, everything overhauled. This is a peculiar time to do it.”
