BOBBY VALENTINE NEWS

The Dumpster Fire Burns On Strong

I asked the question almost two months ago and boldly stated that Red Sox fans would have no meaningful games after the 4th of July. And here we are, watching a Bobby Valentine-esque bunch of guys who just don’t give a **** being led into battle by a manager who wishes he knew a fraction of what Bobby V knows about baseball. And the pythagorean theorem or making wraps for that...

Willie Randolph Deserved Better From Mets

It was nice to see the Yankees honor Willie Randolph, but it was also a reminder of how shabbily he was treated by the Mets during his short tenure as manager. Randolph’s lifetime 302-253 record is the third highest record among Mets’ managers, behind Davey Johnson and Bobby Valentine. RANDOLPH: Back stabbed in the end. (AP) The Mets were on the verge of becoming a National...

Thursday Links: Here we go again…

Photo by Aunti Juli We’ve reached a point in the season that Red Sox Nation should be all to familiar with in recent years. The point where on-field play is an afterthought, and the fans and media have grown tired of complaining about the players, coaches, and front office. I’m talking, of course, about the point of the season where a non-story becomes front page news. In the...

Collins Passes Gil Hodges For Third All-Time In Franchise Wins

Terry Collins won his 340th game with the Mets last night, surpassing Gil Hodges for the third-most managerial wins in team history. Only Davey Johnson (595) and Bobby Valentine (536) have more victories. While this is a nice milestone for the Collins, he has yet to manage the team to a winning season. He started his tenure in New York back in 2011, and his overall winning percentage...

Trade options galore for the Red Sox

Following a disheartening walk off loss at the hands of the rejuvenated Josh Hamilton and the Texas Rangers, the slumping Boston Red Sox fell to a season low seven games under .500 at 22-29, good for last place in the unimpressive American League East. The struggling Sox averaged just a shade over 2.8 runs per game in the month of May. Their 10-19 record on the month is the team’s...

Andrew Miller Benefited From Red Sox’s 2012: ‘Bobby V Was Good For Me’

Bobby Valentine’s disastrous one-year tenure as manager of the Boston Red Sox helped at least one player: Andrew Miller. Miller, who signed a four-year, $36 million contract with the New York Yankees over the offseason, looked like a first-round bust until Valentine converted the left-hander from a starter into a full-time reliever in 2012. That fact isn’t lost on Miller, who...

But while Miller deserves every cent he’s about to receive and the Red Sox need a left-handed reliever, the 29-year-old’s price tag should be enough for Boston to reconsider a potential...
