I'm glad Valentine is back to managing.

I couldn't listen to him as an analyst.

I see Terry Francona actually replaced BV on ESPN, which means that the Red Sox essentially traded Francona to ESPN for Valentine!!!..I thought maybe they might have got a minor-leaguer in the deal as well, somebody like Joe Morgan :-) Though Valentine - and his no nonsense attitude - might be exactly what Boston needs right now....well, either that or he will totally destroy that organisation. It's guaranteed to add even more heat to the Yankees v Red Sox rivalry, could be some nice smackdown bench clearances with those guys this summer :-)

relationship with the GM already in shambles. the players will grow tired of his All About BV attitude quickly. there is a reason he has been a flop as a manager in the Majors

Flop as a manager in the majors? He's got a winning record after over 2000 games. Top 5 in the manager of the year voting 4 different times. And he just got hired by one of the best run organizations in the game. The Red Sox are what the Mets (and this fan, at least) wish they were.

Off to a slow start. Whatever. Trying to say Bobby V was a flop as a manager is complete bullcrap and you know it.

good manager in Japan and for a young team where his ego can overshadow everyone and he can bully people

a flop in the big markets with headline players- can't deal with them, they can't deal with him

Bobby V is a very smart baseball man. He has the ability to be a great manager, but the team has to be right. While that could be said for probably everyone except Jack McKeon, it is especially true for Booby. He makes himself the story. That is great for a team with youngsters or problem children. It deflects the media away from them. It doesn't work well with veterans or in markets that are looking for a negative story, ie NY, Boston. Bobby probably would have been very good in Miami, even better in Chicago. Boston fans do not want the manager to be the story. They want big stars with big wins. Bobby has already openly questioned management. He has publicly mentioned short comings of particular players and called out the team's chief rival. If the Sox have slow start, fans will be calling for his head. If he speaks his mind about how the team should have been built and wasn't, management will hand it to him. If the team wins, nothing he does will be wrong.

I actually recall praying that we got Bobby V back before they appointed Collins, in fact come to think of it I did the same before they appointed Manuel. I hope he does well in Boston, if only to irritate the NYY.
