Here's the audio from WEEI of Bobby Valentine saying the Red Sox will still be a playoff team this season (despite being 55-56 at the moment). ESPN.com transcribed the money quotes:

"I think we're a playoff team and I think we're going to be there before the season is over."

And

"I think it's realistic if we stay healthy. Right now we have some concerns in the bullpen. If that stabilizes I think there's big runs ahead."

Good luck with that.
