Former Boston Red Sox Manager Bobby Valentine still holds a grudge with the Boston media about the way they treated him during his one and done season that ended with a dismal 69-93 record, the team’s worst record since they went 62-100 in 1965, reports Bill Baer of HardballTalk.com.
Valentine, Via CBS Boston:
“All the Boston [media] ever wanted to do is prove that they were a tougher media than New York,” Valentine said. “And I don’t paint everyone with the same brush — I think some of those guys are absolutely terrific people. And a good group of ‘em are absolute horses asses who are unprofessional, lazy and should not be in the business up here, in my opinion.
“I had one guy never talk to me the whole year because he said to me he didn’t like the answer I gave him in spring training,” Valentine continued. “He covered my team the whole year! I think the New York media knows more about baseball and is more professional.”
Geesh Bobby, why don’t you tell us how you really feel?
