How much of the blame for this year falls on Bobby Valentine?
The answers run the spectrum, but is it enough to get Valentine fired before the season is even over?
Sean McAdam says short of a clubhouse uprising, Valentine is unlikely to be 'whacked' during the season. Although if he continues to inject unnecessary drama, ownership may decide to pull the plug.
Bob Neumeier, however, places none of the blame on Bobby Valentine for this season's malaise.
"It's all on Josh Beckett. It's all on Jon Lester. That's the reason the Red Sox are where they are," said Neumeier.
The crew agrees on one front, Bobby Valentine is unlikely to be the Red Sox manager in 2013.
