Well look who’s come crawling back as he begins his public relations cleanup campaign, Bobby Valentine. Apparently Bobby realized that all the negative publicity headed his way was, in fact, due to his own stupidity. Perhaps I’ve been a little harsh on the former Red Sox manager but it’s about time he realizes all those verbal tirades against his former team were doing more damage to his image than to the Red Sox. How does Bobby V. begin the process of redemption in Boston? He started by kissing the butt of his biggest critic both publicly and privately, David Ortiz. I've got a question for you Bobby: In the quizzical voice of one Pedro Martinez, who's your Boston "daddy" now? The answer: David Ortiz. In an interview on 'The Diehards' Thursday on Boston's NBC Sports Radio, Valentine had this to say about the long-time Red Sox first baseman/designated hitter.

Concerns about David Ortiz

David Ortiz has appeared on these "pages" more than just about any other player. For four straight years there was the ongoing debate about whether the Red Sox should extend him or not.

Red Sox Shouldn’t Panic About David Ortiz’s Status, But Offense Far Less Daunting Without Slugger

The No. 1 rule of spring training is to not get too high or too low on individual performances, as the games bear little resemblance to regular season action.

The Red Sox are still optimistic that Ortiz will be ready for Opening Day...

That...
