It’s great news for Boston fans that Bobby V is headed north to be their manager. He’s the perfect guy for the job as he’ll bring the swagger and confidence back to Beantown.
An added bonus is this will allow me to watch the Yanks/Sawks games again - something I haven been able to do for about 3 years now.
I would’ve taken Valentine back in Queens but as I told my Sox buddy, Bobby will be fantastic for the first 2-3 years but then his act might start to get tired. Still though your teams will play to or above their ability while he’s in the dugout so you take that deal no questions asked.
Who cares that Broxton didn’t sign with the Mets - he SUCKS. I’d mug rather have Francisco Cordero closing games for us anyway.
Word is Dotel is high on the wish list. Sorry, but I can’t get very excited by this… At all. He did bounce back to have a good season last year but he’s 38 and clearly well beyond his best days.
Jack Wilson is another guy who generates ZERO excitement for me. OK so he’s a great/versatile fielder - he doesn’t hit. I’m not interested in his .243 avg and .274 OBP in 79 games last year.
…Sorry, I’m just not.
