Red Sox Notebook

Bobby Valentine clarifies remarks on Red Sox roster

TORONTO — Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine Sunday tried to clear up the “weakest roster we’ve ever had in September in the history of baseball” comment he made Friday, saying that he meant “weakest” in terms of quantity, not quality.

“The other day when I made a comment about the September roster, that wasn’t meant to be a criticism of any players or anyone within the organization,’’ Valentine said before a 5-0 loss to the Blue Jays at Rogers Centre.
