Bobby V Flips Out

Bobby Valentine has been under a lot of stress this year. He is the manager of one of the most popular teams in the world, they stink, and the players don’t like him. So when a radio host asked if he had “checked out” of the season, Bobby didn’t take it too well:

“What an embarrassing thing to say. If I were there right now, I’d punch you right in the mouth. Ha, ha. How’s that sound? Is that like I checked out? What an embarrassing thing,” said Valentine. “Why would somebody even, that’s stuff that a comic strip person would write. If someone’s here, watching me go out at 2 o’clock in the afternoon, watching me put in the right relief pitchers to get a win, putting on a hit-and-run when it was necessary, talking to the guys after the game in the food room — how could someone in real life say that?”

It’s nice that the players have a “food room”.  Apparently the question arose after Bobby was late for a game. Valentine said it was due to his son being late at the airport, whom he was meeting and hadn’t seen all season. You can read the full article here.
