This could go under the other Bobby V thread but I think this is to good to not deserve his own thread.
---------------------

A Boston Red Sox official told at least one player at the beginning of the managerial search that they "weren't going to hire Bobby Valentine or someone like that," a clubhouse source told ESPNBoston.com last week.

The conversation suggests that Valentine, known as a no-nonsense manager in stints with the Mets and Rangers over 15 years, was perceived by some as a darkhorse candidate who would not be popular with some players.

"They're going to have a mess on their hands," the source said when asked what would happen if Valentine, who at that time was just one of several candidates, was hired.

According to ESPN's Buster Olney, inside sources are saying that "some Red Sox players have been upset (about the choice of Valentine)" and that there have been "grumbling to each other, through texts and phone calls."

Of course they aren't happy.  He won't put up with their garbage.

Good, that means they'll be too busy fighting to be a good team again.

Cleese,


Please post this BlowSox stuff in the MLB Forum where it belongs. This a non Yankee related thread.
