    Valentine is a good manager but at times he acts like a lunatic. If people thought Boston was dysfunctional last year they haven't seen anything yet. Wonder if he is packing a new supply of fake mustaches for the Yankee series this year.

    Sunglasses and a fake moustache. I always wondered if he just had a fake moustache in his office just in case.

    Valentine is tough to quantify. He's an excellent in game manager, gets the most out of his bullpen and platoon guys. On the other hand he has a huge Ego, and really rubs some players the wrong way.

    It will be boom or bust, I could see him taking that Boston team all the way, but then again I can easily see his ego rubbing people the wrong way.

    Just have to love Cashman..still the worst GM in the history of baseball.

    http://hardballtalk.nbcsports.com/2...y-expectations-are-low-for-hiroyuki-nakajima/

    "Heard Nakajima’s bat could be better than Twins’ Nishioka, but not as good a fielder."

    “Nishioka” would be Tsuyoshi Nishioka.

    So that opinion suggests Nakajima’s bat “could be better than” a guy who hit .226 with zero homers and a .527 OPS. And he’s “not as good a fielder” as a guy who broke his leg playing second base largely because he didn’t know how to properly turn a double play and was completely overmatched when switched to shortstop.
