Former Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine lost out on a gig as a studio analyst with TBS in part because of comments he made about Sept. 11, according to a Newsday report.It turns out Bobby Valentine was full of shit with those comments. While it may have been true that no Yankee was literally at Ground Zero (while he was there), implying that they didnt do anything was bullshit. He basically wanted to spew some hatred towards the Yankees and made stuff up. Im not surprised.
Valentine was a candidate for an analyst job during the upcoming MLB playoffs, but recent comments about the conduct of the Yankees organization during the 9/11 attacks on New York city reportedly helped cost him the job. Valentine was manager of the New York Mets at the time.
“You couldn't find a Yankee on the streets of New York City,’’ Valentine said on WFAN radio. “You couldn't find a Yankee down at Ground Zero, talking to the guys who were working 24/7."
The guy has a knack for spewing unfounded bullshit and pissing people off. Remember this is the same asshole who called out Kevin Youkilis publicly, saying that he wasnt "physically or emotionally into the game" and turned the 2011 Red Sox into a shit show. But I digress.
Anyway, so we wont have to hear his annoying Ray Romano / Kermit The Frog voice this fall. Thank you, TBS, for sparing us the pain and suffering.
