BOBBY VALENTINE RUMORS

Will Red Sox Surge Push Run Total Past 2014 Levels?

(Getty Images)With their recent gaudy run production, the Red Sox are on pace to blow away their 2014 run totals. In fact, as of today, they are projected to score 734 runs—exactly 100 more than they did last year. Of course, The Carmine Hose could slip back into another offensive funk, but it still looks like they will easily surpass last year's totals. To put this in perspective...

Bobby Valentine Says Mets Could Win World Series

In the last three weeks, the conversation has largely shifted from if the Mets make the postseason to when. The question still remaining however, is whether this is a team capable of playing deep into October or not. Bobby Valentine, who knows a thing or two about quality Mets baseball, believes this year’s club could […]

The Dumpster Fire Burns On Strong

I asked the question almost two months ago and boldly stated that Red Sox fans would have no meaningful games after the 4th of July. And here we are, watching a Bobby Valentine-esque bunch of guys who just don’t give a **** being led into battle by a manager who wishes he knew a fraction of what Bobby V knows about baseball. And the pythagorean theorem or making wraps for that...

History Shows Red Sox’s No. 7 Draft Pick Could Yield Big Name (Photos)

This embed is invalid" /> The Boston Red Sox will pick seventh in the 2015 Major League Baseball first-year player draft. It’s a bad thing for the Red Sox because it’s a product of their failed 2014 season.

Breaching The Valentine Line No Longer Easy

Before the Red Sox lost seven straight, it seemed like a cakewalk for them to surpass the 69-win threshold so valiantly put up by Bobby Valentine's 2012 squad. Now, not so much. With just 33 games left in this miserable season, they still need 14 wins to get to 70. That's a .424 winning pace—and they're currently winning at a .434 clip. Also, as we pointed out before, they are...

The Road To Breaking The 'Valentine Curse'

Your 2014 Carmine Hose have 38 games left to play in this dismal season. In order to surpass the win total of the 2012 Boys of Bobby Valentine, they will have to take at least 14 of those games. Seems like a pretty easy task, right? Except the eight teams they will face until the end have a combined .537 winning percentage—and only one of those teams is under .500 (Tampa Bay)....

Summer Camp, Red Sox Style

If there’s one thing that really set the 2013 Red Sox team apart, it was the lack of controversy. After the 2012 Bobby Valentine show, it really looked like the guys just put their heads down and did their jobs. No dead grandmothers, no contract BS, no chicken and beer. This season may not go quite that smooth. Apparently, hijinks have begun. The only man in Boston more critical...
