A Conversation with a Chair, I mean Red Sox Mgr., Bobby Valentine


A Conversation with a Chair, I mean Red Sox Mgr., Bobby Valentine

  • 1 Pin

So I’ve got Mr. Bobby Valentine sitting here. I was just going to ask him a couple of questions..... So I remember when we had Terry Francona as the Boston Red Sox Manager. Everyone was crying when he helped us win two World Series. And then all hell broke loose over a chicken and beer, and overweight ballplayers scandal, and then you came along, and talked about hope and change, hope and change, hope and change.

    And then I found out that your players hate you. Now that is something to cry about. I mean you haven’t done enough ~ ownership has not done enough to cure that. Whatever interest they have is not strong enough. So, I think that possibly, maybe it is time for someone else to come along and solve the problems. What do you think? So, Mr. Valentine, how do you handle promises that you’ve made to turn around the Boston Red Sox? I mean how do you handle it? I mean, what do you say to your lineup? ~ Oh, I see. You don’t.

    I know even some of the people in your own clubhouse are very disappointed in you. So much so that they held secret meetings with ownership to get you fired. What do you think about that? ~ What? What do you mean shut up? I’m not going to shut up! It’s my turn! What? What do you want me to tell the players? I can’t tell them to do that. They can’t do that to themselves! You’re absolutely crazy! You’re getting as bad as Lackey. Of course we all know that Lackey is the intellect of the Boston Red Sox! Kind of like a grin with a body behind it. (Continued below.)

    Now Mr. Valentine, Red Sox Nation is hurting. I mean hurting man! What do you have to say to RSN? I mean come on man! They deserve an explanation. They want you gone! They call you an a_s clown! ~ What? If I told them to do that to themselves, this world would be a very happy place! You see, I never thought that it was a good idea to bring you on anyway. I think it’s maybe time..... What do you think? For maybe a business man to come on board. A stellar business man! And I think it’s that time, and you step aside, so that Mr. Francona can take over again. (Continued below.)

    Anyway, I’m sorry. What? No, I can’t do that to myself either. There is something that I think is very important, is that you, we, we own this Red Sox Team, and it’s not you owning it, you are an employee. And when somebody does not do the job, we’ve got to let them go.
