Red Sox brass discuss firing, next steps

Bobby Valentine was relieved of his duties as manager of the Red Sox Thursday morning during a 90-minute meeting at the home of team president/CEO Larry Lucchino in Brookline.

Lucchino, principal owner John Henry, chairman Tom Werner, and general manager Ben Cherington were the firing squad. The team announced the dismissal only 14 hours and 14 minutes after Wednesday night's 14-2 season-ending loss against the Yankees in New York.
