I don't know how he did in grade school back in Japan, but he earned a big fat "F" from the Twins in Baseball Basics. And that's despite a battery of tutors. No instruction ever seemed to stick with him and, as a result, this whole experiment has turned out to be an expensive disaster.
Man hates the Yankees. Has just been mouthing off about them all off-season and all spring training. I know you manage the Sox, but, come on.
Bobby V already pissed off Ozzie G this spring. The game that Ozzie got ejected he waved goodbye at Ozzie. Ozzie did not see it but he said had he seen it he would have told Bobby V to go **** himself!
I do really feel bad for Joba though. A lot of people are ripping him because he got injured in such a ridiculous way, but he was just trying to play with his son. You hate to see a guy lose back to back seasons.

i'm already tired of him. i understand the purpose he serves as a mouthy idiot. but it's march 23. the ****ing season hasn't started yet. eat a wrap and shut the **** up bobby.
Valentine has had a huge chip on his shoulder about the Yankees since he was the manager of the Mets (when most of NYC ignored his title contender since they fell in the middle of the Yankees dynasty.)
It was obvious when he was working for ESPN (remember that game where he criticized A-Rod for like 3 innings because he wasn't taking a wide enough turn around 3rd base?) and it's obvious now. If you think his whining is annoying in spring training, just wait until Sabathia or Rivera gets a reputation call against the Sox.
The one saving grace for Red Sox fans is that, if Boston struggles at all, Bobby V will probably get thrown under the bus almost instantly.
