Boston Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine isn't too confident about his team's roster coming down the stretch of the season.

Trying to assess what he has on the team's 40 man roster, Valentine didn't mince words when trying to describe the team's talent.

"Are you kidding?" Valentine said, according to ESPN.com. "This is the weakest roster we've ever had in September in the history of baseball. It could use help everywhere."

The Red Sox have lost 18 of their 23 games and among American League teams, only Cleveland and Minnesota have worse records.

Valentine said the Red Sox could add "one or two guys" from Triple-A Pawtucket in the upcoming week.

"If there are people who could be brought up, we should bring them up," he said. "But I don't know that there's a lot of guys left."
