Will This Go Down As Valentine's Day In Red Sox Nation?
Today, the Red Sox formally introduced Bobby Valentine as their next manager. Valentine reportedly signed off on a 2 year deal earlier today and will definitely be the next manager. There have been mixed reviews about Valentine's hiring. I have seen many reports saying how great a move this is and how it is a ticking time bomb waiting to explode in the face of Red Sox nation. To be honest, I'm just glad that the whole managerial interview process is over. However, I am excited about Valentine. He brings a personality that I like to the table as he is colorful but firm-- something this clubhouse is in dire need of. I look forward to seeing how Valentine performs as the Red Sox manager in 2012 and (hopefully) beyond.
