As many of you know, Bobby Valentine is the new athletic director at Sacred Heart University (smooth move Sacred Heart). During his introduction, Valentine made a statement that consisted of some absolute nonsense.
“I thought I did a hell of a job in Boston,” Valentine said. “I thought what had to be done there was done except for winning a pennant. But Connie Mack wasn’t going to win with that team.”
Added Valentine: “It’s six months of a 62-year life. It’s six months of a 42-year career in baseball. It’s a blip, a little spot on the radar, as far as I’m concerned.”
In an interview with the Connecticut Post on Monday, Valentine insisted he’s not taking the job for the publicity.
“Why would I need the publicity?” he said. “I wouldn’t understand the question and I wouldn’t dignify it with an answer.”
Valentine also chatted with Boston Herald columnist Steve Buckley on Monday, telling Buckley that he had no interest in rebutting some of the critical remarks made about him at Red Sox spring training.
“I don’t want to comment on stupid things that stupid people say,” Valentine said. “I’m not going to comment on any of that.”
WHAT? Bobby, you are out of your (insert custom expletive) mind! Somehow, he made an absolutely screwed up situation beyond worse.The team had talent and potential that didn't click. It never would have clicked under his management.
If we saw things the way Bobby does, The Royals have been doing a hell of a job, they just haven't won any pennants.
Valentine ended it nicely, referring to members of the Red Sox as stupid people saying stupid things. Nice job keeping this shit show going.
