After just one season, the Boston Red Sox has decided to let go of their head coach Bobby Valentine.

The Red Sox thought hiring the loud and outspoken Valentine would be a smart move in bringing the team back to the level play they had with former coach Terry Francona but instead Valentine went 69-93, the organization's worst season in almost 50 years.

"I understand this decision," Valentine said. "This year in Boston has been an incredible experience for me, but I am as disappointed in the results as are ownership and the great fans of Red Sox Nation. It was a privilege to be part of the 100 year anniversary of Fenway Park and an honor to be in uniform with such great players and coaches. My best to the organization."

 

Future Hall-of-Famer Peyton Manning has added another thing to his list of accomplishments, he's now a minority owner of the Memphis Grizzlies.

Peyton, his wife Ashley and former NBA player Penny Hardaway have all signed on to be minority owners for the team, joining Justin Timberlake and a couple of Memphis businessmen.

 

And for those who like to watch hockey, the NHL has canceled 82 games. The lockouts are real in sports!
