The Bobby Valentine Joke is getting old - a Bleacher Report article


I called for Bobby Valentine to be fired in April.
I wasn't wrong.

I'm not saying the Red Sox would have won the pennant if they did that, but correct mistakes earlier rather than later is what I say.

The Red Sox have an off day today. As I wrote in Bleacher Report. after the 1-8 road trip and his WEEI rant, there is no better time to fire him than now.

He has done worse than lose the respect of the team. He has become a punchline. And there's no recovery from that.

You can read the whole article HERE.

  1. Still confused as to who exactly thought the "former-ESPN analyst" was a good hire.

  2. I still can't think of much on the field that Valentine has done wrong. He bunts more than I'd like, but that's really about it. It's not his fault that the media is determined to create a circus around him. Why fire him?

  3. Let me rephrase that: what had Bobby done, apart from being a media personality, to get a shot at managing the Sox? His career record is right around .500. In 15 years he took 1 team to the WS. He was mostly known for being acerbic, cocky, and alienating players rather than on-field excellence.

    As for the media circus, Bobby V has ALWAYS helped anyone who was willing to put up a tent and cue the clowns to get things started. The media thing is a two-way street, and he's no victim here.
