Terry Francona sees Bobby Valentine’s bike riding and raises him a scooter.
The former Red Sox managers may share an affinity for alternate modes of transportation, but no injuries occurred for Francona while he was riding his scooter throughout Arizona. During spring training, the Cleveland Indians skipper has been foregoing a vehicle with four wheels, and instead opting for one with two.
Francona even half-joked about riding his scooter to Progressive Field when the regular season starts because his home is closer to the ballpark than his parking spot is.
Check out Francona’s sweet wheels in the video below.

GOODYEAR, Ariz. New Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona doesnt yet know all the ins and outs of his team, but the one thing he knows for sure about it is that he has two productive pieces in Jason Giambi and Nick Swisher, players the Tribe acquired in the off-season.
Francona has a history with Giambi and he expects positive vibes from the 42-year-old veteran of veterans. He...
Indians skipper Terry Francona had only nice things to say about Jason Giambi during a recent interview, saying, "I’d be lying if I said he’s not special."
HIRE OR FIRE?
Well, if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em — or, if you’re Bobby Valentine, put on imitation MLB jerseys and laugh along with those who have enjoyed seeing you get fired throughout the years. Valentine is the star of a new CBS Sports Fantasy Baseball commercial, where he — described on-screen as a “famous baseball manager” — recounts how he’s been fired a lot in his...
New Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona believes that Jason Giambi is a manager-in-waiting.
Say what you will about Bobby Valentine and his inability to hold a job in professional baseball, but the man clearly has a sense of humor. Valentine’s career with the Boston Red Sox lasted about as long as most of us expected and went about as well as we would have imagined, so he decided to take a safer job as the athletic director at Sacred Heart University this year. It would...
Indians manager Terry Francona has picked Zach McAllister to be the club's No. 4 starter.
McAllister came to camp as the favorite, and the right-hander has not disappointed during workouts and exhibition outings. The 25-year-old, 6-8 in 22 starts for the Indians last season, will be in Cleveland's rotation behind Justin Masterson, Ubaldo Jimenez and Brett Myers. The Indians...

Correspondingly, according to The Plain Dealer’s Paul Hoynes, Tito also said that left-handed starter David Huff will now...
Tell Bobby he's been fired. Got to love it.

Say what you want about Bobby Valentine, but at least he's got a sense of humor? I have a feeling a similar phone call will be coming from Sacred Heart in about a year.

Former Boston Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine recently became the new athletic director of Sacred Heart Univeristy in Fairfield, CT, but he is also a pitchman for CBSSports fantasy baseball. He filmed this short online commercial to promote the product, while poking fun at his past failures: I like the cameo of “President Bush.”
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...
Miguel Cabrera and Mike Trout turned last year’s American League MVP voting into a two-horse race, but former Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine thinks someone else was in the discussion before an injury derailed his season.
Valentine spoke glowingly of David Ortiz in an interview on Boston’s NBC Sports Radio on Thursday, making it clear that he thinks Ortiz is as good as they come...
