Valentine appreciates Henry’s clarification

Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine, whose dwindling clubhouse support was detailed in an explosive Yahoo! Sports report of a July 26 meeting in New York in which a divide between the players and the manager grew even wider, said he appreciated principal owner John Henry’s clarification of what was said in that meeting.

“As I said before, I regret the fact that he has to be out there,” Valentine said. “If we were 10 games over .500 or in first place [in the division], I don’t think he’d have to make any statements.”
