It's safe to say Joe Maddon and Bobby Valentine probably won't be grabbing a beer together when the Red Sox visit the Rays down in St. Petersburg in a couple of weeks. Maddon and Valentine already exchanged pleasantries earlier this season, and the two were back at it on Wednesday, albeit in a much tamer way. Valentine fired the first "shot" during a rather bizarre interview with Glenn Ordway and Michael Holley on WEEI's The Big Show after being questioned about showing up "late" to one of the Red Sox' recent games in Oakland. The Sox skipper arrived to the...

Bobby Valentine's true colors revealed in tense radio interview

It's crazy that it took this long for most people to realize that Bobby Valentine isn't some incredibly talented manager and is, in fact, just an arrogant jerk.

He's goofy because...

Red Sox News & Notes - 9/8

New day, same old suck from the hometown team. But I will say this. They didn't go quietly. The Toronto Blue Jays got out to an early 4-0 lead and then held on to beat the Boston Red Sox 7-5 in front of 37,156 rain-soaked fans. I say that only because there was a one hour and 28 minute rain delay before the game. It was funny too because the one storm cell that passed over...
