So yesterday Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine goes on sports radio and among the tidbits drops a bomb.
During a game a rookie named Middlebrook committed two errors in the same inning. Upon arriving back to the dugout he was greeted with a sarcastic “nice inning” from Valentine. Soon after the manager he was rebuked by “ownership” for uttering that unkind remark at a player.
How did it get to ownership? The snitch lives. I told you so. And he’s not the press’s snitch, he’s Larry’s snitch.
You can say what you want about Bobby V but it is hard not agree that ownership (lLarry) is either setting him up or watching as others set him up to be a joke.
Stay strong Bobby. The fans are with you. It’s not about your managerial skills or your over the top Fabian image. It’s about how the a-holes, including many in the media, are treating you.
Good for you Booby by letting this out as an illustration of the day to day shit Larry is saddling you with.
Listening to Dennis and Callahan this morning you would suspect there was a bag man involved somewhere. Seriously, did anyone hear them this morning. They were like Bagdad Bob playing to Lucchino’s Saddam. They blamed everyone but Larry and when callers suggested some fault in the Red Sox mess should be aimed his way D and C ridiculed them.
Seriously, their loyalty beyond what is expected from the flagship station. Plus they assigned blame to Henry and Werner. Also Cherrington, Epstein, and maybe even Dick O’Connell (blast from the red sox past). It was bizarre.
Anyway rather than mentioning the governor’s choice between two lousy ones re: the crime bill, I thought I’d just remind everyone that Larry Lucchino is still a dick.
