Last Friday, I mentioned Bobby Valentine was going to bring dysfunction to college athletics when he accepted AD position at Sacred Heart University. Today he appeared at news conference where he promised that his new job is a challenge he is taking very seriously.
When posed with questions about his time with the Red Sox, Valentine responded with the following…
I thought I did a hell of a job in Boston. I thought what had to be done there was done except for winning a pennant. But Connie Mack wasn’t going to win with that team.” Valentine, went on… “It’s six months of a 62-year life. It’s six months of a 42-year career in baseball. It’s a blip, a little spot on the radar, as far as I’m concerned.”
Memo to Bobby V: Connie Mack had a record of 3731-3948, resulting in a winning percentage of just .486. That’s like a team winning 79 games per year. That’s awful!… Oh, that’s right, you only won 69…
