Red Sox Players Angered by Accusations of Rift, Get Along ‘Fine’ With Bobby Valentine (Video)

When a report came out on Tuesday that Red Sox players had a meeting with ownership to complain about their manager, it seemed that a divide was growing between Bobby Valentine and his team.

But as the news continued to spill out before Tuesday’s game in Baltimore, the truth began to seep out beyond all the rumors.

It turns out that Jon Lester in fact knew that he would be pitching deep into the supposed problem game in which he gave up 11 runs against the Blue Jays at the end of July, as the bullpen was already overworked. And it also was revealed that the players meeting with management is also a common practice within the organization — just ask Terry Francona.

Nick Cafardo of The Boston Globe stopped by to chat with NESN’s Tom Caron about the incident during Tuesday’s Red Sox Gameday Live, presented by UNO.
