Could the Boston Red Sox season get any worse?
Apparently, not, as manager Bobby Valentine on Wednesday morning threatened to punch a radio talk show host in the mouth.
Now, he says he was kidding around he made the comment. He made the comments during an interview with WEEI hosted Michael Holley and Glenn Ordway.
When Ordway questioned a newspaper report that said Valentine arrived later than his normal time. The incident happened last week against the Oakland Athletics.
“What an embarrassing thing to say. If I were there right now, I’d punch you right in the mouth. Ha, ha,” Valentine said. “How’s that sound? Sound like I checked out? What an embarrassing thing. Why would somebody even, that’s stuff that a comic strip person would write. If someone’s here, watching me go out at 2 o’clock in the afternoon, working with the young players, watching me put in the right relief pitchers to get a win, putting on a hit-and-run when it was necessary, talking to the guys after the game in the food room – how could someone in real life say that?”
Valentine is just weeks away from being fired at the end of the season. The mistake is going to be rectified after one miserable season.
He signed a two-year contract with the Red Sox before this season. But the Red Sox say no decision will be made until after the season.
Valentine wants to return for the second year.
“It’s turned out to be not what I expected,” said Valentine. “It’s been a little misery, yeah. I’m not sure it’s 24/7, but I would think after a loss I’m miserable. … It’s been adventurous, challenging.”
