Over the past few days a huge uproar has engulfed the Boston Red Sox, after a report on Yahoo! Sports claimed several of the team’s players had complained about manager Bobby Valentine to the team’s owners. Jeff Passan’s report said players blasted Valentine to owners John Henry and Larry Lucchino in a heated meeting after a text message was sent by a group of frustrated players.
Now Henry has vehemently denied that report and has publicly backed his team’s manager. He also wrote an email to media outlets that confirmed the meeting took place but denied that anyone took the position that Valentine should be replaced.
