The only relevant question was, "Can Bobby Valentine lead the Red Sox to the playoffs and win in the playoffs, though perhaps not this year?"(*)
The correct answer was, "Yes."
We'll never know. He should have been supported in trying to weed out the pampered, emotionally brittle players he inherited. That would have been far better for the long-term success of the team than not supporting him and bailing after a year. The pampered, emotionally brittle players have now driven out two managers in two years. It's going to be very difficult for the organization to overcome that in the short and medium term and the short and medium term outlook for the organization would be better had they backed Valentine.
