The home clubhouse at Fenway Park was not the most relaxing of places Saturday evening after the Red Sox blew a 9-0 lead to the Yankees in an eventual 15-9 loss, falling to 4-10 on the year.

“I think we’ve hit bottom,” first-year Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine said in his postgame chat. “That’s what I told them after the game. You have to sometimes hit bottom. If this isn’t bottom, then we’ll find some new ends to the earth or something.”

And then came these tweets from beat writers Evan Drellich (of, Gordon Edes (of ESPN Boston) and Sean McAdam (of’s RedSoxTalk):

Valentine will survive Saturday’s collapse, but the Red Sox are in the midst of a five-game losing streak and are struggling in quite a few crucial areas. It’s safe to wonder what will happen if things get any worse.

    The Red Sox made a huge mistake in letting Tito go especially replacing him with Valentine. Valentine is a horrible fit for the Red Sox as he has pretty much alienated most of the players in this short space of time. They should have kept Tito or hired Jason Varitek or Jim Palmer to manage the club. They need to get rid of Valentine now

    Things need to change in beantown fast or Bobby V will be fired before the all star break. Their pitching is really bad right now. I hope they change soon.
