    Let's get this out there right now....

    The past  few years we have heard about the Francona Factor.Well here is the new one for all you Francona haters who will ultimately hate Valentine by the 10th game of the year.
    The Valentine Vacumn. The other teams count on him entering it in the 5th inning.

    Be ready to watch real baseball this year. No more having to win "In Spite of Francona". No more Sitting and Spitting. The Sox have a real manager, finally.

    Second guessing the manager is as old as baseball itself. Maybe not always fair , but it can be fun.

     Amazing how Franconians completely like to forget what happened the last 3 seasons... Good thing John Henry, the only guy who's opinion really matters, Didn't !! The TV Booth may just be the best place for Good Ole Tito, I wish him the best !! Anybody managing the Sox Not named "Tito" Is good enough for me !! Finding "Other Duties" for Bogar has to be near the top on Bobby V's List of things to clean up.

    I guess Sitting and Spitting will be replaced by Standing and Swallowing.

    Obviously you know nothing about his past accomplishments or should I say unaccomplishments. Some numbers don't show up here but TF has a much higher W% and a 100 game lead in Ws over .500 in less years as a mgr. BTW Japan does not count in MLB.

    TF 2 WS                          BV Zero

    Before Tito there were zero WS rings in how many years?
    Tito was here 8 years and won 2 World Series championships....what else do you really have to say? The Sox had great players before Tito too....How did Bubba Little do before Tito?

    This is good.  The shoe is on the other foot.  You have already set yourself up as a Valentine apologist.  When he makes mistakes, you'll be one of the ones who has to defend him.

     Nice.  Love turnabout.  It is fairplay, afterall.  I personally am on board the Valentine express.  But, I may try out some annoying, repetitive, one note, broad-stroke criticisms of him this year, just to make Bosox defend him.

    I don't chirp. I was only programmed to say " Francoma is a bum"
    Awk, Awk Francoma is a bum. My owner Bosox1941 got me at Walmart.

    Re: Let's get this out there right now....

    Valentine coming in to yank failing pitchers is great with me . . . in any inning. Imagine watching a RS team that doesn't have to overcome a six run opponents' lead because Francoma doesn't want to damage the confidence of an overpaid professional athelete.

    Can't wait. Hey, BobbyV, yank at will. Can't wait to see RS managed by a first-class baseball mind. I figure he's good for 10 extra wins a year.

    A guy can dream in December, can't he?

    Ha ha, yeah, sure thing, Bobby V will be yanking starters at the first sign of trouble.  Third inning, fourth inning, whatever.  So the bullpen will be totally fried by the All-Star break.  Now that's smart managing.

    It's going to be interesting to see who the Francona haters blame this season.  By their own logic, this team allegedly improved with his departure.

    So who are they going to turn on when the slumps begin?

       With the garbage that Bobby V currently has in his bull-pen, his hook might not be as quick as you like, unless you enjoy watching Albers, Jenks, Doubront, Atchinson, Morales, and those are the good arms, coughing up big leads.
