Generic viagra india Murray Chass The Jack Ass-curotsy of pitchershiteighith.com

Generic viagra india I received a link today of a post that Murray Chass (the big dumb ass) wrote about Bobby Valentine and how he can’t stand BV and BV couldn’t stand him either. Generic viagra india Chass it seems felt it was his duty to call Larry Lucchino the Red Sox CEO, generic viagra india to find out how the Sox managerial search was going. Generic viagra india I guess after screaming at his grand kids and staring out the window for hours making sure no one parked their car in front of his house, generic viagra india Chass decided he needed to know if Bobby Valentine was THE GUY the Sox were ready to hire as their field boss.

Generic viagra india From reading the post it’s clear Chass has an agenda, generic viagra india in fact since Chass was canned by the NY Times he’s had a hard on for lot of people and he’s in denial that he has gone from being the National baseball writer for the Old Grey Lady to a blogger . Generic viagra india Chass will never identify himself as a blogger but that’s all in the denial side of his old ass life. Generic viagra india Anyway, generic viagra india Chass has gone and dug up gossip and innuendo from Valentine’s days as Mets manager using the one player that Valentine really had no use for, generic viagra india Todd Hundley to make his case but back to Chass calling Lucchino. Generic viagra india The Sox CEO told Chass that Valentine had a great interview and then wanted to know what Chass thought of BV, generic viagra india I’ll let Chass tell you in his own words his feelings on Bobby V:

Generic viagra india I would rather not have people I am interviewing ask me questions. Generic viagra india In this instance what I thought about Valentine or any other candidate shouldn’t matter. Generic viagra india I am not the one hiring and paying the new manager.

Generic viagra india On the other hand, generic viagra india Lucchino asked a reasonable question, generic viagra india and the primary problem I had with it was whether I should offer some vague, generic viagra india non-committal comment or answer honestly. Generic viagra india Of course, generic viagra india I chose honesty because I expect honest answers from the people I question.

Generic viagra india “I have found him to be the most disliked man in baseball, generic viagra india” I said. Generic viagra india And I added, generic viagra india “He doesn’t like me and I don’t like him.”

Generic viagra india I didn’t offer any details, generic viagra india but if Lucchino wants to know why I made those statements, generic viagra india I will enlighten him here, generic viagra india which is a more appropriate place for a reporter or columnist than the telephone. Generic viagra india

Generic viagra india One thing we know about Valentine is there is no middle ground when it pertains to how people feel about him. Generic viagra india I admit to be being a big fan of his but I can see how his personality could grate on one’s nerves if you had to deal with him on an everyday basis but what I take issue with Chass is his view of Valentine is personal not business. Generic viagra india  No place in his column does Chass give Valentine credit for being an outstanding bench manager. Generic viagra india  You can hate the guys guts but you lose credibility when he don’t acknowledge that Valentine gets more out of what he’s given than anyone in baseball. Generic viagra india   

Generic viagra india Chass really embarrasses himself when he critiques Valentine’s managerial record by harping on the fact his teams never had a first place finish:

Generic viagra india Valentine undoubtedly talks a good game; that’s why ESPN hired him. Generic viagra india But ESPN doesn’t have to worry about a won-lost record. Generic viagra india While it’s a fact that Valentine managed the Mets to two consecutive wild-card berths in 1999 and 2000 and the World Series in 2000, generic viagra india it’s also a fact that in 14 years with the Rangers and the Mets he never managed a team that finished in first place.

Generic viagra india  

Generic viagra india Presumably, generic viagra india the Red Sox, generic viagra india who have not participated in post-season games the last two years, generic viagra india have studied Valentine’s history (and not just tested his knowledge of Jamesian sabermetrics) and know that he ranks third in history among managers who have managed the most games without finishing in first place.

Generic viagra india  

Generic viagra india Valentine took over a Mets team in 1996 that had stopped to listening to Dallas Green whose method of motivation was to scream at his players “to look in the mirror” and man up. Generic viagra india Valentine’s main strength was getting the most out of his 25 man roster but he had to deal with a few clubhouse lawyers who became very comfortable living the high life in the Shea Stadium clubhouse one in particular was Todd Hundley. Generic viagra india I’ll get to Hundley in a minute, generic viagra india Chass just kind of glosses over the fact the Valentine won a pennant with the Mets and if not for the shit the bed performance by Kenny Rogers would have had back to back pennants under his belt. Generic viagra india Someday Chass should let us know what he thinks of Bobby Cox whose teams finished in first place 14 times but has one World Series flag to fly? What about the greatest manager to ever put a pen to a lineup card Tony LaRussa, generic viagra india winning a World Series with a wild card team?  What Chass doesn’t get is all you have to do is get in the tournament, generic viagra india who cares how you got there? I’m sure there isn’t a Cardinals fan out there complaining how their favorite team got to post season as they are reveling in their successful post season tour.

Generic viagra india Back to Todd Hundley, generic viagra india it was no secret back then that Valentine wasn’t a fan of Hundley and Hundley felt the same about BV.  Hundley talks about his relationship with Valentine:

Generic viagra india  In Hundley’s view, generic viagra india the problem with Valentine began when the manager appeared to be jealous of the player’s standing with the fans. Generic viagra india ”He comes into a whole new situation and goes right after I guess the most popular guy, generic viagra india” Hundley said. Generic viagra india ”It’s not my fault I’m the most popular guy.”

Generic viagra india Hundley was especially upset at the timing of Valentine’s comments on his sleep habits because his mother was being treated for cancer and his wife was pregnant.

Generic viagra india ”I’m talking to my mom while she’s going through chemotherapy, generic viagra india” Hundley said, generic viagra india ”and I’m helping my wife with taking care of our two kids and he’s saying I’m out and about.”   

Generic viagra india  

Generic viagra india It’s true that Valentine gave a”wink-wink, generic viagra india nod-nod” statement about Hundley not getting enough sleep which was Valentine speak for Hundley being a hard partying guy. Generic viagra india I have no proof that he was or wasn’t but I’m sure it was the manager sending a message to a player and the player reacted negatively. Generic viagra india If it’s true that Hundley wasn’t getting sleep due to worrying about his mom and wife then Valentine was dead wrong to bring that up but what we saw with Hundley was he was not a true team player. Generic viagra india When Mike Piazza was brought over from the Marlins it was Hundley who was affected the most and it hurt Hundley to no end that Piazza was coming to the Mets and was the new starting catcher. Generic viagra india Hundley felt he was the most popular Met (I think Bernard Gilkey, generic viagra india Lance Johnson and of course Edgardo Alfonso were right there as popular Mets) but now with a super star like Piazza on the team he had to take a back seat in fact he had to find a whole new place to play, generic viagra india as Hundley was exiled to left field. Generic viagra india  That’s when Hundley ceased being a Met. Generic viagra india His play on the outfield was one of indifference; you knew his Mets days were over. Generic viagra india Was Valentine the reason? Maybe part of it but the mostly it was the acquisition of Piazza that was Hundley’s problem.

Generic viagra india Without a doubt Valentine is a very polarizing person, generic viagra india but he has a track record of turning teams around when he occupies the mangers office. Generic viagra india I’m not sure that Valentine is the guy to run the Red Sox bench as I feel their problems run a lot deeper in that clubhouse but you know the Red Sox will be prepared and they will be interesting. Generic viagra india  Valentine vs. Generic viagra india the Boston Media will a show all by itself.
