The 2012 MLB season is not even a month old and already one team could look to make some major changes after a sluggish start.
Bobby Valentine was hired after a late season collapse by the Red Sox last year that cost the team a shot at the post-season, but after just two weeks of the regular season, things are getting worse and not better in Boston, and Valentine could be on the hot seat.
The team's new manager has questioned players motivation and work ethic, and it has already divided a locker room. Most of the veterans on the team have a World Series ring, and being questioned about their loyalty and motivation is a bad move by a manager looking for respect.
Valentine has turned around bad teams in the past, and he is a solid skipper, but with the start the Red Sox have had and a big series against the NY Yankees coming up this weekend, Boston could be on the verge of a total meltdown, and making a move this early in the season might not be such a bad idea.
Boston started last season very slow, but the team rebounded until their collapse in September. This MLB season has started much the same, but now the clubhouse and players are in disarray, and that could spell the end of the line for the veteran manager, unless the team decides to make several changes with players, which seems highly unlikely.
