    BOSOX1942 thinks they would have won more games because he would handle the bullpen better.

    Everytime something goes right for the Red Sox this year, he always get involves.  Why the world NESN still interviewing him?

    Stay away from that guy.

    Better question is whether John Farrell manages the Red Sox to a WS, last year. 



    As pointed out by the Dodger, a team built around Gonzalez just can't win.

    I do not know what he was supposed to say.  But, I do know that there is no way for it to refelect positively on him to say "I coulda done that!"  It's the funniest/worst kind of 5 year old jealous/sour grapes response.  In fairness, it is very consistent with his character, so I suppose it was inevitable that he would say this when prompted.  Gotta hand it to him, awful manager but fantastic soundbite.

     awful manager

    In 1995, Valentine began his first stint as manager of the Chiba Lotte Marines in the Japanese Pacific League. That season, the team surprised most Japanese baseball fans by finishing in second place (69–58–3), a remarkable feat for the Marines who had not won the Japanese Pacific league pennant since 1974.

    Valentine led the Mets to a record of 97–66 and a wild card playoff berth in 1999. The Mets beat the Arizona Diamondbacks in four games (3–1) en route to the National League Championship Series, where they eventually lost to their division rival the Atlanta Braves in six games (4–2).

    The Mets returned the following season, finishing the year with a 94–68 record and another wild card playoff berth. This time, the Mets would not be denied the pennant, winning the 2000 National League Championship Series by defeating the St. Louis Cardinals in five games (4–1). The Mets run would end during the 2000 World Series as they were beaten by their crosstown rival New York Yankees in five games (4–1).

    In 2004, Valentine began his second stint as manager of the Chiba Lotte Marines. On October 17, 2005, he led the Marines to their first Pacific League pennant in 31 years after emerging victorious in a close playoff with the Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks. Nine days later on October 26, the Marines won the Japan Series in a four game sweep of the Hanshin Tigers for the first time since 1974. On October 27, 2005, Valentine issued a challenge to the World Series champion Chicago White Sox on behalf of the Chiba Lotte Marines. Valentine called for a seven-game World Series to be played between the American and Japanese championship teams. Unlike the World Baseball Classic, a competition featuring sixteen national all-star teams, a World Series-styled tournament between the winners of both the American and Japanese championships has never been played.

    Following their Japan Series championship, the Marines won the inaugural Asia Series by defeating the Samsung Lions of the Korea Baseball Organization in November 2005.

    Valentine won the 2002 Branch Rickey Award for his donations and personal work with survivors of the September 11 attacks


    Space, easy to expose poor character like you. Valentine's career as a manager has been good. His character is judged in deeds, not words. Unfortunately, American culture is a culture of poor character and words, which reflects character like you.

    Not in his wildest dreams could he have managed this team to the WS. I could not believe my eyes when I saw the big writeup on the front page of the Globe's sports section this morning. What was BDC thinking? Valentine should not even be part of this conversation. He was probably the worst manager I've ever seen in my lifetime last year. He was divisive and the players did not like him. I doubt you would have seen the kind of comraderie that is key in why this team is doing so well.

    It is humorous that someone like Softy, a vile person with repugnant character can question anyone else. Did you mother ever teach you about glass houses?

    A WS and a Japanese league title and 911 Service award aren't "links", space. You have manifest bad character. 

    [/QUOTE]

    Always good for a chuckle Tito.  Allow me to redeem myself after demonstrating 'manifest bad character':  Valentine was a solid manager back in the day, was a really good manager in Japan, is a very smart baseball guy, and an overall swell dude ... but last year, he was an absolute horror show from beginning to dismal end.

    Farrell does owe a good portion of his success to Valentine.

     

    If Valentine had not turned a 90 win team into a 69 win team so unbelievably quickly, would we hold Farrell in the same regard?

    Maybe admit that he did a bad job?

    Maybe not pretend the a lie is the truth?

    Maybe don't say anything at all?

    I could go on.

    I was a Bobby V supporter and thought he was hired to turn this talented team around in 2012 after the chickengate nonsense....well he failed, and did so spectacularly....yea he was undercut by whiny players like Pedroia and not supported by Ben who never wanted him in the first place. However at the end of the day you must own what happened...he has not and that only makes me think Ben was right 100% about not wanting him and wanting Farrell.
