What to do about Bill James?

On "Uno Sports Tonight," Gary Tanguay and Michael Felger give their opinions on what the Red Sox should do about senior adviser Bill James, whose defense of Joe Paterno has stirred controversy.

The Red Sox distanced themselves from James' comments on Monday and told him to stop talking about the Penn State case.

Tanguay: "I'd fire him immediately....Furthermore, he's a moron."

Felger: "I'd fire him, too, but not for this. I'd fire him for Carl Crawford, Bobby Jenks, Julio Lugo, J.D. Drew, for this cold streak that he's been on."
