Despite another disappointing season that Red Sox fans had to endure, many still took small comfort in knowing that the Red Sox would ending the season with back to back series against both the Orioles and the Yankees.

This would give the Red Sox something meaningful to play for with an opportunity to play the spoilers role and to be able to affect the outcome of the final standings.

So how did our 2012 Red Sox respond to that challenge? They did it in the same disappointing manner in which they displayed all season long with little passion and intensity leading to a dismal 1-9 record over their final 10 games of the season.

Other than a couple of exceptions, this team quit on its manager but even more importantly quit on their fans. At the same time, it appeared that their manager Bobby Valentine had also quit due to his lack of in game moves, puzzling lineups and strange comments.

While Bobby V clearly needs to be fired as eearly as tomorrow, that is not the single quick fix for this team. Before anything positive can happen, Management needs to come together and get on the same page with a plan that they can execute over the next few years in order to get the Red Sox back into playoff contention again. Otherwise it will be another very long season in 2013.
