With all the talk of performance enhancing drug allegations hindering the credentials of players up for Baseball Hall of Fame consideration, former major league manager Bobby Valentine dropped a bit of a bombshell on Thursday.

Randy Levine says Bobby Valentine “should be silent and remember” after the former Mets manager claimed the Yankees were nowhere to be found following the terror attacks of September 11, 2001.

The brash and supremely confident manager was fired on Thursday, the day after the finale of a season beset with internal sniping and far too many losses.
The baseball gods certainly have a cruel sense of humor.
