Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. Ousted skipper Bobby Valentine created a stir Tuesday with comments to interviewer Bob Costas in which he criticized the team -- most notably David Ortiz -- and the media. Olney said that shouldn't be a surprise. "No, and I think it will continue," Olney said. "It's clear that Bobby was not happy with how it ended. He qualifies everything by saying, 'It's my fault, I should have done a better job.' But then he'll also in the same breath not hesitate to take shots at different people.  "The thing I'm going to be curious about is whether or not David Ortiz and others fire back. Or if they say, 'You know what, we know that if you get into this with Bobby, he's always going to be the one who gets the last word in.' David Ortiz, I thought the entire year, really he could have done incredible damage to Bobby -- and clearly he disagreed with him on some issues; he was in the middle of the thing with Mike Aviles in spring training -- and he held back. I'm really very fascinated to see whether or not he and others decide to go back at Bobby, or if they say, 'You know what, he's not the manager anymore, no point in continuing this." WEEI: Ortiz held back No. Please for the love of God, don't get into a war of words with Bobby Valentine. Just let it go. Now is not the time for this. Once the gag order has passed and Bobby V comes out with his tell all book, THEN you can go after him.  The whole interview shouldn't have surprised anyone. It was right in Bobby's wheelhouse and with Bob Costas lobbing the easy questions his way, it was nothing worth being riled up about. He said some things that were low blows like Ortiz quitting but one thing still rings true: that the clubhouse still feels entitled. The Sox are still in the process of getting those guys out of the clubhouse and hopefully it's different with Farrell here but that remains to be seen. David Ortiz is about to finalize the two year deal that he has coveted for the past couple of years. The Sox know you didn't give up, and they still think you can be the big bat in the lineup that you have been for the past decade. So be the bigger Papi man and just laugh it off.  Rest of the Links: Globe: Getting Farrell just the start 20 questions Costas should've asked Valentine | Herald: Another epic fail for Bobby V | Farrell set to pitch in | CSNNE: Cherington on Japanese pitching phenom Otani | Bobby V sounds off | WEEI: Into the unknown
