Boston Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington wouldn't comment on the rumor that manager Bobby Valentine would be fired as soon as the season is over.

Boston Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington would not confirm or deny the earlier report that manager Bobby Valentine would be fired as soon as the season ends. Cherington reinforced his previous statements that he wouldn't talk about Valentine's status until the end of the season.

While Cherington refused to speak on Valentine's status he did say that the team is already looking at ways to improve for next season. Cherington said he was confident the Red Sox would be better next year, but didn't want to set any specific expectations, saying, "I think people are tired of hearing how good we're going to be before the season starts."

This is the first season as general manger for Cherington, but he has been with the Red Sox organization since 1999. In his first season as GM Cherington hired Valentine to replace Terry Francona. The Red Sox enter the final day of the season at 69-92.
