In response to SindarinEribor's comment:
"Pedroia told Valentine that he would have liked for him to return as manager."
"It's in the article titled "Pedroia doesn't regret backing Youk"."
Where is the connection between these two statements?
Without the source or quotes, this is all BS. No logic here.
Pedroia said it was in that discussion that the two touched on Valentine's uncertain future with the team, with Pedroia telling the manager he would have liked for him to return.
"He kind of told me, 'Listen, I don't know if I'm going to be back next year, but I hope I am. I hope we can give this another try. We'll do a lot of things differently,' and I said the same thing. I said, 'You know what? So would I.' That was kind of the last time I spoke to him.
"After they made the decision to fire him, I texted Bobby and told him thank you for the year and sorry that we didn't accomplish our goals, but I just wanted to tell him I appreciated the things he said to me to make me a better player."
Thanks, zac ..
