BOBBY VALENTINE RUMORS

Sox Shouldn't Pop Any Corks Over Next Win

No Sham-Pag-Knee For You!When (and if) the Red Sox win one more game it will signify that they have passed the Bobby Valentine Win Barrier of 69—brilliantly achieved in the 2012 season. However, to paraphrase Pulp Fiction's Winston Wolf, "Well, let's not start getting too excited quite yet." Indeed. Getting 70 wins the year after winning a World Series Championship is nothing to...

Can Sox Get Nine Wins Over Last Twenty-Two?

Your 2014 Carmine Hose still need to win nine games to eclipse the Bobby Valentine Win Threshold of 69. Can they do it? They only have to win at a .409 clip—but do you really have a lot of confidence that they can even do that? Let's look at the remaining schedule. They have more than 50% of the games (12) at home. That's a good thing, right? Well, so far they are 29-40 at America...

Breaching The Valentine Line No Longer Easy

Before the Red Sox lost seven straight, it seemed like a cakewalk for them to surpass the 69-win threshold so valiantly put up by Bobby Valentine's 2012 squad. Now, not so much. With just 33 games left in this miserable season, they still need 14 wins to get to 70. That's a .424 winning pace—and they're currently winning at a .434 clip. Also, as we pointed out before, they are...

The Road To Breaking The 'Valentine Curse'

Your 2014 Carmine Hose have 38 games left to play in this dismal season. In order to surpass the win total of the 2012 Boys of Bobby Valentine, they will have to take at least 14 of those games. Seems like a pretty easy task, right? Except the eight teams they will face until the end have a combined .537 winning percentage—and only one of those teams is under .500 (Tampa Bay)....

Summer Camp, Red Sox Style

If there’s one thing that really set the 2013 Red Sox team apart, it was the lack of controversy. After the 2012 Bobby Valentine show, it really looked like the guys just put their heads down and did their jobs. No dead grandmothers, no contract BS, no chicken and beer. This season may not go quite that smooth. Apparently, hijinks have begun. The only man in Boston more critical...

Bobby Valentine ‘Pulling For’ Jacoby Ellsbury, Calls Him ‘One Of The Best’

Bobby Valentine is a fan of Jacoby Ellsbury. The former Boston Red Sox manager showed some love for the New York Yankees’ new center fielder on Thursday, calling the longtime Sox leadoff hitter “one of the best.” Ellsbury played just 74 games for Valentine’s Red Sox in 2012 due to a shoulder injury. Ellsbury kicked off his Yankees career on Wednesday by reaching base in all...

Valentine alleges someone told him to ignore possible PED use by Rangers

Bobby Valentine alleged on Thursday that someone instructed him to ignore possible PED use during his time as manager of the Texas Rangers.

Bobby Valentine, Brian Cashman Set to Once Again Rappel Down 22-Story Building in Stamford, Conn.

The Yankees aren’t done making moves just yet, as general manager Brian Cashman may be taking the riskiest one of them all on Friday. Cashman won’t be making any more splashes with free agents, however, as he’ll be far too busy scaling a 22-story building in Connecticut with former Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine. Cashman is no stranger to the activity and rappelling down one...
