Bobby V   Sorry Red Sox nation. Maybe he improved his managerial skills overseas but this is a REALLY STRANGE hire

Having Bobby V  AND Buck Showalter here in TEXAS I wasn't very impressed with either of them. Similar style managers, unlikable pricks

Yankees and Rays fans should be ecstatic at this hiring.  Valentine has a career 51% winning record (49% with the Rangers and 53% with the very talented Mets). And he won 1 lousy NL pennant in those 15 years. The Red Sox would have done much better rehiring Grady "Chicken" Little than this farce of a manager. Enjoy many years of mediocrity, Red Sox fans, as Francona was a GREAT manager.

I guess all you have to do is get air time on ESPN after being fired for ineptness, do a pathetic job analyzing Sunday night baseball, then you become a hot commodity again.

What really sucks is that ESPN will be riding him all season for whatever success he has.

Glad I watch the MLB Network.

According to a report, Boston players are not happy and upset with the hiring of  Valentine.

I think it's because he's against the whole "Chicken and Beer" philosophy.

I think Valentine is a good fit for those wacky red sox.  2012 baseball is going to be really interesting

I really like Valentine because I like his made for TV personality but I dont think he's a good fit for the future of the Red Sox organization and if what I hear is true, their current players.  Sooner rather than later they are going to expect Boston to win and that's just unfair because the coach-player chemistry isn't there. Also, if what i hear is correct, Valentine wasn't even in the running about a month ago so this points to really impulsive signing by the Red Sox. That's just my opinion. I will have to check back on this post in three years.

Wrong about the # of years but right about everything else.
