With Bobby Valentine on board, the new Red Sox leadership is now in place. (RedSox.com Screenshot)
Something happened in September that I wasn't involved in, and I didn't see it first hand. You know I think that - reputation is something that other people think about you, and right now maybe this bunch of guys have a reputation that's not warranted. Because everything I've heard about the players that were in the uniform last year, and the coaching staff - says nothing but they have great character. There might have been a couple characters that kinda got out of line. There might of been situations that got spinning too fast - I don't know, because I wasn't there. But I can tell you that I am look forward to working with this group, and establishing a culture of excellence.
