Red Sox take risk with Bobby Valentine

 

Boston Red Sox finalized a deal putting Bobby Valentine at the helm of the team, with Valentine expressing his great desire to take the job. He is to succeed Terry Francona at the post but pundits claim that such a move poses great risk because Valentine is considered to be intense and volatile. In addition, Valentine has never won a division title while managing  the teams of the Texas Rangers and New York Mets for a total of 12 full seasons.

Red Sox Bobby ValentineHe has not managed in the United States since 2002 but led Japan’s Chiba Lotte Marines to their first title in 31 years, winning also the Asia Series. Nevertheless, his successes in the U.S. include only two wild cards and one National League pennant.

Former general manager of New York Mets, Steve Phillips, said the Sox can only benefit from hiring Valentine, describing him as an experienced manager who is opinionated, reads stats well, and numbers mean something to him. He is the best fit for the team, according to Phillips.

Valentine has returned from Japan to sign his contract, commenting that the Red Sox are a great team and the opportunity to manage them is fabulous.
