Hey, another Bobby Valentine rumor! This time: Milwaukee

Oct 14, 2010, 8:50 AM EDT

I think we’re gonna just start listing the jobs Bobby Valentine isn’t rumored to be in the running for, because it would probably save time. The latest: Milwaukee, as reported by Tyler Kepner.

The Brewers actually make more sense for him than Seattle. They have a better core of players and are way more likely to contend with a couple of tweaks than the Mariners are. Sure, Valentine isn’t necessarily past the point where he’d be able or willing to rebuild a team — he strikes me as a more energetic guy than your typical 60 year-old dude — but why make it so hard on yourself?

At any rate, I’ll believe that Valentine is truly a serious candidate for a job when he actually gets hired for one.

    I find it hard to comprehend how a world traveled sophisticate, bon vivant, restauranteur, inventor of the wrap, out of the hometown of Yale University would inhabit Milwaukee, city of the croaking mayor, home to a plethora of cookie cutter hofbrau hauses selling rubber schnitzel, dripping watered down beer and serving steroid fed mad cow cheese on soggy crackers or taffy pretzels, which most notably produced dribbling idiot Bud Selig (offset slightly by having once produced Golda Meier), without going stark raving out of his mind.
    .
    Seattle, on the other hand, is home to Boeing, Microsoft, Gary Larson, Cow Chip Cookies, Ivar’s smoked salmon fettuccine alfredo (Fredo sleeps wit da feeshes), a Lenin statue that presided over a real estate boom and, in its continuing spirit of innovation, houses the original “crapper” (actually Thomas Crapper invented the flush toilet in England, but they called him mad, so he went to Seattle where Doc Maynard let him install it in the basement of his saloon, figuring, correctly, that even if it didn’t work it was better to encourage his lumberjack and maritime patrons to piss in the basement than all over the floor).
    .
    The Mariners, Bobby. Go for it.

    “The Mariners, Bobby. Go for it.”
    Why would he waste his perfectly “made for TV” white teeth on being a manager when he can trash other skippers and get paid instead of being trashed for being a manager by some other guy with teeth almost as white as his? I don’t know, I bet he’s toying with everyone and he doesn’t go anywhere.

    Your choices for excitement are the Pacific Northwest or Wisconsin? – Shoot yourself.

    I’m hoping for the Mets. Just listen to him and the crap he says on TV. He spent too much time in Japan, is out of touch with the game and wherever he goes it will only lead to failure.

    He sure has a great PR guy.

    To Jonny5…that Seattle rain must have turned your brain to mush. The only thing more depressing that your weather is your pathetic Mariners. So after you get done pining over Kurt Cobain, why don’t you sober up with an $8 coffee at your beloved Starbucks and try and be a man. Milwaukee’s home to Harley-Davidson, Miller and Briggs & Stratton. Oh wait, that’s man stuff. Guess you and your cute fettuccine alfredo fascination wouldn’t know anything about that stuff.
