    I would really like to see Dave Martinez get a shot with a good franchise.

    On another note... I caught 2 flies (flys?) with my bare hand today. 38 years old and I still have cat like reflexes. LOL
    I'd be even more impressed if you had caught one in your hat.

    Two separate instances. About 45 mins apart. You would have thought the first fly would have taken the hint. If I catch 2 at the same time I will apply for world class status.
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    Wasn't Valentine a third base coach here for a short time?

    I believe it was after Tony Perez was fired. Valentine and Davey Johnson had been hired as consultants to start the season, which many interpreted as a sign that Perez wasn't going to be manager for long. When he was fired, Johnson became manager and Valentine was hired as third base coach.

    This guy just will not shut up and/or go away. He really is awful.

    Bobby V is no longer the Red Sox' manager—this alone is cause to break out the duck boats. But he is still talking, and saying inflammatory things, and people are listening because this is the sort of thing that happens every October in Boston...

    I honestly think he has mental problems. From the sunglasses episode to this, the dude is just off.
