You will not be surprised to hear that Kevin Youkilis‘ agent, Joe Bick, was asked about the Bobby Valentine comments:

“I will not dignify his quotes by responding to something so far off base on so many different levels”

Well, that is a response, but I suppose we’ll that go.

    Predictable and predicted: Valentine is a terrible manager. The losing streak to start the year masked the legitimate complaints that many of us have with his choices.

    And a little winning streak won’t change that.

      Wanna trade him for Slobbering Ozzie? How many Cubans do you have in Boston?

        Yeah but knowing Ozzie, .. if he got to Boston he’d likely find a way to piss of the Irish, .. which could be worse.

    Shocker. An agent said something ridiculous and completely over the top.

    Wake me when there’s some news to report.

      You type in your sleep?

    You would think he would have more of a tan under his arm-pits, with a batting style such as that.

      Hahaha! Well played Kiwi. Well played. LOL!

    2012: The year of “Managers Should REALLY Watch What They Say.”

    I thought “no comment” was not responding????

    Youkilis may want to change agents since his current one doesn’t seem to know the simplest of things…….

      The agent’s translation: “I won’t give an opinionated response beyond the fact that Bobby V is a moron talking out of his ass.”

      • cur68 - Apr 16, 2012 at 2:09 PM

        Yeah, pretty much this. We should have another quote from BV by the end of the day. Possibly 2. Oy.

      • Old Gator - Apr 16, 2012 at 3:14 PM

        You call out Kevin Youkilis without even once mentioning how ugly he is? Yeah, that’s a moron.

    A good manager would have approached Youkilis privately. He’s a guy with a track record for intensity and hard work. Who knows what his issue is. It could be some private or family matter. Public embarrassment, though, is just counter productive. Pedroia’s vocal defense of Youkilis shows too that Valentine’s lost some respect in the club house. Valentine had better change his approach or he’s going to have some problems.

    Valentine is a effing idiot, talk about causing the troops to turn on you….. Bobby go ahead and blast a few more players and see how hard they play for you. Talk about a jerk-off!

    Bobby, reference Cecil Cooper. The way things are headed, you won’t even last as long as he did in the head coach job.
