Poor, poor sox. Such a shame. My prediction for their new mangager is Bobby Valentine. I think he'd fit in perfectly with the circus atmosphere up there. Ha!

Bobby V would be hilarious and maybe fitting.

Bobby V? As if I need another reason to hate Boston?

3) See, and that's why it'd be kind of perfect.

I looked at the Mets' new uniforms. I'm sorta surprised they don't look more like this:

Bobby Valentine would be fun in Boston. I think Boston fans would turn on him for being too much about Bobby V and not enough about the Red Sox but he'd fine for the first 2/3 of his run, which about all you can ask of anybody in baseball.

Any readers in Japan have any Bobby V thoughts? I think the best part of his resume is his baseball experience in Japan. He's got to be one of the most prominent baseball figures in history to go from the US to Japan in the middle of his career. I love that he even thought to go.

joejoejoe , there is a great multiparty article by Robert whiting about Bobby V And his time in Japan, from the Japan times newspaper. Really interesting.
He is still a god for many MArines fans, he won a championship with a team equivalent of the royals. But he burned a lot of bridges too. Still a shrine to him near the stadium I think.
