Making his last appearance of the season on The Big Show, Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine said he was undermined by his coaching staff throughout the season.
Asked by Glenn Ordway if he felt the Red Sox' coaching staff and those around him have been loyal to him during the course of the season, Valentine responded, "No."
Asked why, Valentine said, "You asked me what I feel. That's what I feel."
Ordway then followed up by asking if he felt he was undermined by them, to which Valentine responded "Yes." Asked why, Valentine again said, "[It's] just what I feel."
Valentine didn't blame the organization for the picking of his coaches, saying, "I had a say. I interviewed everyone." Asked what went wrong along the way, Valentine said, "Just bad decisions" and that it was his job to try to "work through it" and "make it all functional."
Asked if he would want different coaches if he were to return next year, Valentine responded, "Some, yeah."
