    Bobby Valentine

    This Boston Globe/Nick Cafardo interview with Bobby Valentine is going to get linked and tweeted about a lot today because, buried deep inside, Valentine opines that, had he stayed with the Red Sox for 2013, he thinks he could have turned the ship around.

    Bobby Valentine horizontal

    Yesterday TBS announced its postseason crew. Keith Olbermann will man the studio and with him will be Pedro Martinez and Tom Verducci. On merit alone that’s a solid studio team, assuming of course Pedro is as candid in his studio analysis as he is in interviews and public appearances. But it may have been more than…

    Sacred Heart University held a press conference today introducing Bobby Valentine as its new athletic director, Jerry Spar of WEEI.com was there to witness it, and not surprisingly Valentine said a few things that I’m sure Red Sox fans will love.

    Feb 21, 2013, 10:43 PM EDT

    Bobby Valentine

    Feb 12, 2013, 4:00 PM EDT

    Bobby Valentine

    I get piling on old Bobby Valentine all winter. The bad season still lingers. You have to assess what happened until at least the Winter Meetings, and then you have to talk about all the new moves with reference to why they were necessary in the first place. But you’d think that when the new…

    Bobby Valentine Reuters

    When Bobby Valentine was fired as Red Sox manager, I was slightly sad that I would not have Bobby Valentine to kick around anymore.  Now I really won’t have Bobby Valentine to kick around anymore.

    The first really public strife involving Bobby Valentine and the Sox last year came when Dustin Pedroia called him out in the media for making disparaging comments about Kevin Youkilis (“that’s not how we go about our stuff here”).

    Oct 26, 2012, 1:56 PM EDT

    Steve Phillips, Bobby Valentine

    It’s hard to imagine former Mets GM Steve Phillips ever getting another shot to become the general manager of a major league team, but if it happens, he’d consider hiring Bobby Valentine to manage. “I would consider Bobby to manage again, probably not this year.” Phillips said on WEEI’s Mut & Merloni show. “I think…

  20. On the silence from Bobby Valentine

    Oct 9, 2012, 2:00 PM EDT

    Bobby Valentine

    Buster Olney makes the following observation about the post-firing Bobby Valentine: Rival officials believe that Bobby Valentine’s relatively muted response to his firing may be tied to some kind of financial incentive, which is not uncommon in the sport. In other words, people are sometimes paid to not criticize. Yes, non-disparagement clauses are common. Of course, given…

    Sep 16, 2012, 4:41 PM EDT

    Bobby Valentine

    Bobby Valentine’s quotes and actions have gotten more erratic by the day. If he isn’t complaining about Alfredo Aceves and the rest of his “weakest roster ever,” he’s making a bizarre in-game choice, like inserting pinch-hitters mid-at-bat. That’s what he did in the seventh inning of a scoreless game today against the Blue Jays. Valentine…
