From ESPN Boston Starting today at 4:30 p.m., Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine will call in for a weekly segment on the Michael Kay Show on ESPN New York Radio 1050. Each week, we'll also promote the appearance right here on ESPNBoston.com and recap it with the audio clip and partial transcript. The time and day will vary from week to week, but we'll keep you updated. For starters, you can CLICK HERE to listen today at 4:30. Why isn't he doing it on one of the two Boston networks? Is Bobby still a slave to ESPN? Does this mean Mazz has more fodder to trash Valentine with? Will Curt Schilling somehow make this about himself? Does this affect Valentine's position as Director of Public Safety for the city of Stamford, CT? How many titles can I add a question mark to in one day? In the grand scheme of things this isn't a big deal at all. It's just Bobby earning a little extra cash in a much bigger market than Boston. I'm sure he'll still call in to the B...

Before the game, the 62-year-old manager said he could definitely feel the jitters of Opening Day...

Bobby Valentine's Short Leash

Love him or hate him, Bobby Valentine does not have a very long leash with Red Sox Nation.  He did not bring home two World Series Championships like Tito did so every move he makes is going to be looked at under a microscope.  When the Red Sox had a terrible start to the season last year there were not that many people calling for Francona's head, yet with one loss in Bobby...

Bailey Headed to DL

Andrew Bailey will miss the start of the season with a thumb injury and will be placed on the DL.  Bobby Valentine is going to go with one closer, not a closer by committee to replace Bailey but he did not announce who that might be when he met with reporters today.  Valentine's only update on Beckett was that he expects him to make the start on Saturday.

Bobby V on ESPN 1050 Each Week, What Do You Think?

In an interesting turn of media events, Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine has signed up for a weekly segment with Michael Kay on ESPN 1050. The news was broken by Daily News media columnist Bob Raissman. I have never heard of an out of town manager having a weekly segment on an opposing city’s station. In a way, this is a revolutionary move by ESPN. We all know that WFAN and Mike...

Andrew Bailey 'Possibly' Out for Months, According to Bobby Valentine

WASHINGTON -- The fortunes of the Boston Red Sox pitching staff took a detour Tuesday through Cleveland, where ace Josh Beckett and closer Andrew Bailey were both having second opinions on thumb injuries. Beckett is expected to OK, while Bailey could miss much of the season. "The good news for us is that their situations don't seem to be the same," manager Bobby Valentine...

Ben Cherington to Appear on Dennis and Callahan on Thursday Morning

The Boston Red Sox have seemingly been stuck in a state of chaos since the end of last season. First, it was clubhouse concerns during the end of the 2011 season. Then came new manager Bobby Valentine. And now, flashy new closer Andrew Bailey is down for a few months with a thumb injury and Josh Beckett could be joining him. Thankfully, general manager Ben Cherington is on the case...

Happy Opening Day! Er… Third Opening Day.

‘What’s to-day?’ cried Scrooge, calling downward to a boy in Sunday clothes, who perhaps had loitered in to look about him. ‘Eh?’ returned the boy, with all his might of wonder. ‘What’s to-day, my fine fellow?’ said Scrooge. ‘To-day?’ replied the boy. ‘Why, Christmas Day.’ — Charles Dickens, 1843 “Happy opening day,” Bobby Valentine says, and then he...

Curt Schilling undercuts Valentine

Curt Schilling has become one of the most bombastic former players ever. The former pitcher seems intent on flapping his gums and being as controversial as possible. He has become the Rush Limbaugh of ex-players. And that is just fine. It is a free country and people can say what they want. But what he recently said about his former team and the Red Sox' new manager went over...

David Ortiz Batting Cleanup, Ryan Sweeney Hits Sixth As Red Sox Open Season in Detroit

Bobby Valentine's first Red Sox lineup is short on surprises, and a little heavy on left-handed bats, as his club gets set to take on right-hander Justin Verlander and the Detroit Tigers on Thursday in the Motor City. Designated hitter David Ortiz will do something he did just 22 times last season, when he mans the cleanup spot for Boston against the Tigers. With Ortiz penciled...

Boston Red Sox 2012: Put CSI on Call

DATELINE: HUMOR! Experts that felt the Boston Red Sox were one of the all-time great teams during preseason last year have abandoned ship. This season experts are looking askance at the Boston Red Sox. Perhaps it has something to do with playing in a park that was dedicated the day the Titanic sailed into oblivion exactly 100 years ago. Experts may have also been put off by the...
