|Manager Bobby Valentine|
IN THIS CORNER
Manager of the Red Sox and confirmed squirrel, Bobby Valentine...
AND IN THE OTHER CORNER
SECRET MEETINGTurns out last time the Red Sox were in New York, 2/3 of the players had a secret meeting with the owner about Mr. Valentine among other things. Now that the secret meeting has become public knowledge and things are awkward in Bean Town.
Who am I betting on?I'd like to give Bobby Valentine a puncher's chance but the Red Sox would have to win the world series and I don't think that's gonna happen. They have a lot of money invested in Pedoria and Gonzales so I don't think Mr. Valentine has any leverage. He might last the entire season, but once we go to the judge's card, he's done.
This isn't even a good bout, which brings us to the real problem, who set this fight up?
Oh I remember. It was the owners who hired Bobby Valentine in the first place.

I'm going to need you to show your work because I never understood the logic behind this. Don't get me wrong, I think it was wonderful that Mr. Valentine left Sunday Night Baseball because I found him annoying, but it seemed like a bone-head idea to have him manage Boston.
I could see a hard ass like Larry Bowa but Mr. Valentine just seems like a guy who likes to be the focus of things and I don't think the Red Sox needed that type of manager. Again, I'm a comedy writer but even I knew this wasn't a good move. But hey, it's not my team or my millions and millions of dollars being spent.
Good luck next year Boston with Lou Pinieilla.
