Valentine came out and complimented soon to be retiring Red Sox captain Jason Varitek for “beating up A-Rod” – of course Bobby made no mention of the fact that Varitek actually didn’t win that fight. He also neglected to bring up the fact that Varitek used his glove to fight A-Rod – ooh so tough – and that he also grabbed Alex’s gonads in the skirmish.
Then Valentine brought up Derek Jeter’s flip play from the 2001 Division Series against the Oakland A’s. He said the play wasn’t necessary and that he doesn’t believe the Yankees ever practiced (the play). He also thinks Jeremy Giambi was safe. He very well may have been safe but Giambi was called out. Also, the A’s had two more games to put the Yankees away in that series and they didn’t.
What year are we in right now? Right, it’s 2012 and Bobby Valentine is bringing up events from eight and 10 years ago respectively.
So yes, have fun with him Red Sox Nation. I’m pretty sure you’ll want Valentine and his big mouth gone by June.
