David Ortiz Does Not Blame Bobby Valentine For Red Sox's Struggles

Though some members of the Boston Red Sox reportedly held a meeting with ownership blasting manager Bobby Valentine, it doesn't appear that David Ortiz is among them.

Ortiz doesn't believe that the much maligned Valentine is the problem -- and even went as far to say that Valentine is doing "great."

"I think Bobby's doing great, man," Ortiz said. "He had to deal with so many things through the season, a lot of guys' injuries. I guarantee if we don't have that many guys go onto the DL this year, history would be different this year, and all the talks and negativity that have come out against him, I don't think it would be there."

Unfortunately for all parties involved, and especially fans of the Red Sox, Bobby Valentine has been the story of the 2012 season.
