Two days ago Christopher Gasper of the Boston Globe wrote an article with the headline “Power Struggle May Weaken Red Sox” in which he wrote, among other things, that “a wedge appears to be forming between new manager Bobby Valentine and new general manager Ben Cherington” regarding several roster decisions.
Valentine responded to that article today, calling it “lazy journalism” and “an easy story to write” that has “no validity.”
I could have written it in on December 3. Are you kidding me? There are some guys who are lazy and some guys who are clever. It was a clever journalist that set that all up, too. It comes with the territory.
Valentine added that he speaks with Cherington “a few times a day.”
Of course, my mother speaks to my grandmother “a few times a day” too and I’m pretty sure they’re both completely sick of each other at this point. I’m not sure who’s Valentine and who’s Cherington in that scenario, but I do know there’s nothing clever about it.
