No debate (or mercy): Yanks blow out Sox

NEW YORK -- The Red Sox saw their worst season in generations come to a humiliating conclusion on Wednesday, as the Yankees decimated them in a 14-2 blowout win that witnessed the Sox achieving several forms of horrible history. 

The Sox finished the year with a 69-93 record, their worst since going 62-100 in 1965. The Sox also finished in last place for the first time since 1992 and for just the second time since 1932. The team's season-ending eight-game losing streak was its longest since 2001. 

Daisuke Matsuzaka was shelled for five runs in just 2 1/3 innings, bringing to an end a horrible year that saw him go 1-7 with an 8.28 ERA. In the process, he set a record for the highest ERA by a starter in franchise history. The dreadful performance likely represented the final start of his Red Sox...

Nava to undergo wrist surgery

NEW YORK -- Red Sox outfielder Daniel Nava said that he will undergo surgery to remove a ganglion cyst from his left wrist. The issue first emerged on July 28, creating sufficient discomfort for the outfielder when he swung from the left side that he landed on the disabled list for more than three weeks. When he returned from the DL in late-August, he played in just two games before landing back on the DL until September. 

"In the long run, it's only a really minor thing. I think it should really help things in terms of my coming back and eliminating a lot of things we dealt with," said Nava. "In the big picture, they're not worried about anything at all in terms of recovery. It's not complicated -- just go in, take it out, allow the body to heal."

Though the pain did not go away despite pain-killing injections, and played into a considerable increase in the switch-hitter's strikeout rate, Nava managed to play in 21 of the...

Cherington: 'Don't know yet' about Sox in '13

NEW YORK -- Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington, surveying the wreckage of a 2012 season that has his team finishing in last place in the American League with a 69-92 record entering the final game of the year, said that he is "confident" his team will be better in 2013. However, he said that he could not say with certainty when the team will return to contention. 

"I'm confident we're going to be better. I'm confident we can do better. I think people are tired of hearing about how good we're going to be before the season starts," said Cherington. "We've talked a lot about that the past several offseasons and it hasn't worked out that way. I'm confident we're going to be better. I'm confident that, in time, we're going to be very good. I don't know yet whether that's going to be April 2013 or beyond or when, but I know we'll be back. This team will be back. There are too many good people here, too much strength...

Valentine: I was undermined by Sox coaches
By: DJ Bean

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...

Cherington: No Valentine talk right now

NEW YORK -- Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington chose not to confirm or deny a CBS report that the team has already decided to fire manager Bobby Valentine following the season. 

"I'm not going to talk about it," Cherington said. "We've said many times Bobby's the manager of the team through the end of the year and well talk about it at the end of the season. That's what we'll do."

Valentine said on The Big Show Wednesday that he feels his coaches and others around him in the organization have not been loyal this season and that they've undermined him. Valentine did not elaborate or give examples, and Cherington said he didn't know of any such occurrences. 

"He expressed his feeling and that's his feeling," Cherington said. "If he feels that way then I'm sorry he feels that way. It's hard for me to comment on it because I don't know any examples that would lead to that kind of feeling, but that...
