FORT MYERS, Fla. — There was a funny moment after the game today during Bobby Valentine’s post-game press conference.
He was asked what he heard about the performance Felix Doubront, who pitched in a minor league game at the same time the major league game was going on.
Valentine started scrolling through his iPhone looking for the report that was supposed to be e-mailed to him. But it wasn’t there.
“He threw 84 pitches,” said media relations director Pam Ganley.
“He told us he was very happy,” added Rob Bradford from WEEI.com. “Six innings, no runs.”
With that, Valentine put down his phone and looked out at the reporters.
“He pitched very well today and he was happy about his performance,” the manager said, laughing.
