Go take some more "tainted vitamins" and complain about the official scorer.
Valentine was a joke. Just because the club fired Tito didn't mean they needed to hire a joke. An unqualified, glory-hound joke of a manager. I completely expected, and am happy to see, that the players were insulted by that. I realize a few players abused their situation the year prior, but the professional response isn't to make a spite hire who can't handle the job.
Moreover, when Bobby V. questioned Ortiz' willingness to come back from injury, he asked for it. I'm happy for Ortiz. I wish he was even more critical. Valentine was a sham. Frankly I think the ownership got off easy. The players could have made it even uglier.
