Bobby V hammers a question out of the park

FORT MYERS, Fla. — Bobby Valentine was asked his impression of Jason Varitek, who will officially retire on Thursday.

“From afar, he was everything that you want in a guy who wore a ‘C’ to be. He was a man’s man. He was a big hitter when needed. He was the leader of the pitching staff. He was able to beat up Alex. All that stuff is good stuff. He was exactly what he was supposed to be,” Valentine said.

He was able to beat up Alex. Priceless.
