When we see Bobby Valentine in the Sacred Heart food court and my dad gets excited
Excitement, along with plenty of expectations, came with the 2012 Boston Red Sox! The team had a collective chip on its shoulder after a September collapse the year before cost them a trip to the playoffs...right after the 2011 season, the Red Sox signed Bobby Valentine to be their manager; he had been successful elsewhere in the Majors and also won a Japan Series championship! Also, excitement surrounded the 2012 season as it would be the 100th anniversary of historic Fenway Park! Once the season started, however, the excitement quickly wore off; Boston started out by losing 5 of its first 6 games! There were reports early on that Valentine wasn't getting along with some players, specifically Kevin Youkilis...more on Youk in a bit! Meanwhile, back on the diamond, injuries began to mount...Andrew Bailey, Kevin Youkilis, Jacoby Ellsbury, Dustin Pedroia, David Ortiz, Carl Crawford, well, you see where I'm going with this, these and a number of other players missed at least some time with injuries! A number ...
The Red Sox clubhouse feels "eleventy-billion times better" than it did in 2012, writes John Tomase of the Boston Herald. The team's decision to replace Bobby Valentine with John Farrell is part of that, Tomase argues, but so is the fact that new additions Ryan Dempster, Shane Victorino, Mike Napoli, Joel Hanrahan, David Ross, Jonny Gomes and Stephen Drew weren't around during the Red Sox's ugly 2012 season.

Keep repeating this to yourself: It's only one game. But it isn't, is it? It's more than that. It's a retuirn to those not so thrilling days of yesteryear. And while the Penguins must move past it, they shouldn't forget it. As they apparently forgot the playoff results of last season. I want your analysis of the game, and we'll talk to Phil Bourque about it at 1:00. Is it necessarily a bad thing when a teammate calls out another...in public? Especially when it's the truth? We'll play Antonio Brown's reaction to the incident. Pirates open exhibition games tomorrow. Bob Nutting tells Pirates to winn a title. Really? We'll talk to Bobby Valentine about MLB at 1:30

Oh snap! Daniel Bard throws Bobby Valentine under the bus w/comment re: manager he "can trust."
FORT MYERS — Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington did a good job this offseason. He blended a repertory company of solid, professional, “good clubhouse guys” with the survivors of the Bobby Valentine era, and in doing so he didn’t have to give up any of the organization’s top minor league kids.

Bobby Valentine is out, John Farrell is in, and there has been plenty of change. Are these "new" Red Sox better or is it all a smokescreen?
Just thought it might be a little fun to mention some of the sports guys out there that have a name connecting them to Valentines Day - feel free to throw some at me: Bobby Valentine - manager of Red Sox last year; Pete Rose - all time hit leader in MLB, Ron Darling - pitcher for the Mets; Kevin Love - forward for Minnesota; Chocolate Thunder Daryl Dawkins of the old Sixers: your turn!
Well, at least Bobby Valentine is not the Red Sox manager any more.
So wait, there's a whole day dedicated to former New York Mets and Boston Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine?
Bobby Valentine is the winningest manager among Valentines because he's the lone Valentine who has managerial experience.
By Ellie Musgrave – Monday February 11 2013 VENICE— Shortly after resigning from the Popedom this morning, His Holiness Benedict XVI received a call from Ben Cherington, GM of the Boston Red Sox. The non-denominational American baseball team has faced more than its fair share of tough seasons, explained Cherington, and after hours of deliberation among the front office, they decided to “shoot for the moon” with their new management choice. “You’ve got to understand, someone big has to make up for our last manager,” says John Farrell, a former pitcher who was scheduled to manage the team for the upcoming 2013 season. Farrell is referring to Bobby Valentine who, after functionally driving the team into the ground by trading beloved stars like Kevin Youkilis and Josh Beckett and failing to understand the importance of player order, was noted as “the worst person ever” by ESPN. The public seems to agree—in a matter of milliseconds, Google will auto-complete the phrase “Bobby Val ...

'A metaphor extension'... On November 7, 2012. Barack Obama has been re-elected president of The United States. As far as I'm concerned, extending his presidency for 4 more years makes about as much sense as giving Bobby Valentine a 4 year contract extension after The Red Sox finished in last place. No, Mr. Obama isn't solely responsible for all of America's problems... he had help. A lot of help. But it was his ultimate responsibility to make sure that things went well and they haven't. They haven't gone well at all. On his watch... things have stopped working in Washington D.C. and now America is paying a very, very, very heavy price for all of the dysfunction. In much the same way, Bobby Valentine wasn't responsible for all of The Red Sox dysfunction this year... but just like Mr. Obama, he was an important player in the negative scheme of things. Deciding not to bring Bobby V. back was an easy decision to make. All The Red Sox had to do was pay him his salary... and tell him to go away. Like it or not ...
The Fenway market is a much better product than the Red Sox. Three very good produce sections, a pita shop, numerous other little shops, and the best guacamole dip I have ever purchased. On the down side the meat market was overpriced, but overall I was very happy. Certainly a way better deal than Carl Crawford, John Lackey, Stephen Drew, J D Drew, or most of all Bobby Valentine.
