Sometimes I wonder if Bobby V. has stock in “Red Sox-Yankees Rivalry, Inc.”
ESPN-1050 has signed Valentine to do a weekly manager’s segment on “The Michael Kay Show.” Not only is 1050’s move unprecedented, but it has Kay, the TV voice of the Yankees, squaring off against Valentine, the manager of the hated Red Sox … The move will not sit well with a segment of Yankees fans who can’t stand the Red Sox and already despise Valentine. But ESPN-1050 suits are hoping these fans will tune into hear this man they love to hate.
That’s a big relief. Because I was worried that there weren’t enough outlets providing us with Bobby Valentine’s thoughts and comments already.
