Bobby Valentine

Bobby Valentine sure is a busy guy.

He’s the athletic director at Sacred Heart University, he’s working a bunch of Mets games for SNY television in New York, he’s on NBC Sports Radio, he’s doing commercials mocking his firing by the Red Sox for CBS Sports fantasy baseball, and now he’s writing a book.

Gaylee Fee of the Boston Herald reports that Valentine has signed a deal with big-time publisher Simon and Schuster to write a book titled “Valentine’s Way.” According to Free it’ll be a memoir and includes “his perspective on last season with the Red Sox.” Fun!

Also, has any book title ever set itself up for easy, never-ending jokes more than “Valentine’s Way”?

    I hope he refers to himself in the third person throughout. And “Valentine’s Way” would better be “Way of the Douche”.

      More proof that you don’t actually have to be successful or win anything to make money in sports.

    200 pages describing how saggy his balls are.

    “Also, has any book title ever set itself up for easy, never-ending jokes more than “Valentine’s Way”?”

    Lenny Dykstra is considering writing another book in prison titled, “Memoirs of a Guy Who Writes Bad Checks to Hookers.”

    Bobby, how can we forget you if you won’t leave?

  5. kjericho43 - Apr 12, 2013 at 1:12 PM

    Given the fact that the Red Sox are playing decently, have no internal flaming strife, and all is seemingly good, you just have to assume that he was an asshole (that is…if you didn’t already think that). FU, BV.

    Go away already…nobody cares! I hope he doesn’t sell even one of them.

      Not even his parents will buy this one.

    • oldpaddy - Apr 12, 2013 at 2:05 PM

      I bet he sells a 1,000.
      The Globe, herald and weei will each buy one and he’ll buy the rest. V loves V!

        They won’t have to buy one….they’ll get free copies in hopes that they’ll publish reviews of it.

    This guy can’t write a lineup card. How in God’s name can he write a book?

    • oldpaddy - Apr 12, 2013 at 2:00 PM

      I wonder if there’s a ghost writer. Normaly that’s a no brainer, but v is so full of himself I can’t see him letting someone get in the way of his story.

    There’s already a book titled “How to Lose Friends and Alienate People.”

  9. oldpaddy - Apr 12, 2013 at 1:58 PM

    Items that I promise you are in his book:

    The fans loved him and it was a media conspiracy against him.
    He’s a genius.

    Also, what’s over/under the amount of times he contradicts himself within a chapter?
    I’m going with 3.

    Way? Way of what? Way you never reached a title in America but did it in Japan? He’s a damn joke of a manager. And his voice is retarded

    • tfbuckfutter - Apr 12, 2013 at 3:08 PM

      I can understand how he would reach a higher level of success coaching players who speak a completely different language.

    • pcpatti13 - Apr 30, 2013 at 4:04 PM

      AS a parent of a child who’s IQ is below “retarded” I am repulsed that you use the word retarded so loosely. I’ll drop my 18 yo son off to you for a week end & then let you use the word retarded willy nilly… after you feed him, change his diaper & wipe his mouth 6 times a minute. Your free use of the word “retard” shows how ignorant & stupid you are.

    Imagine having to be the fact checker for this book? What a nightmare.

  12. poprox13 - Apr 12, 2013 at 2:43 PM

    There is the right way and then there is the Valentine Way…….

  13. 13arod - Apr 12, 2013 at 2:47 PM

    its about how to get fired as a manger

  14. aceshigh11 - Apr 12, 2013 at 2:50 PM

    Sounds like Carlito’s Way…only really, really horrible.

  15. coloradostupid - Apr 12, 2013 at 2:59 PM

    Bobby:
    Just
    Go
    Away
    PLEEEEEASE?

    • oldpaddy - Apr 12, 2013 at 6:17 PM

      I’d like to see a public flogging first.
      I sharpened my pitch fork and have a brand new torch.
      Bring on the book signing!
