If you think New York won’t be looking to spoil the party in a big way, well, buckle up.
I would be surprised if Granderson hit 40 or more home runs again, but since he has demonstrated the power is there I would be disappointed if he didn’t hit at least 30. I shared that thought with hitting coach Kevin Long and asked for his reaction.
Valentine said yesterday he doesn’t believe the Yankees practice Jeter’s famous flip from 2001. Well guess what was on the schedule today? Cutoffs and relays.
Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine has spoken: no more alcohol in the clubhouse.
As a native New Yorker, who loathes all things Massachusetts, from the Red Sox to Bill Belichick to Ben Affleck, I must say Bobby Valentine, though sometimes a mutinous manager, is also a brilliant baseball man and a dangerous addition – particularly for the Yankees.
Yankees fans, you’ll have to get used to rooting against Bobby Valentine yet again.
When Terry Francona left the Red Sox, he said they needed “a new voice” in the manager’s office. Well, they’ve certainly chosen a brash one. Right, Mets fans?
Bobby Valentine’s unique charisma and managerial acumen makes him a wise choice to handle the pressures of managing the Red Sox.
The Boston Red Sox have picked Bobby Valentine to be their next manager and the sides were working to complete a contract, a person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press on Tuesday night.

When it comes to beating Bobby Valentine, the Yankees have been there, done that. (2000 World Series, anyone?)
Valentine has met with at least one owner and will meet with others. Majority owner John Henry did not return an email Friday seeking comment.
According to David Ortiz, all the Big Papi-to-Yankees talk last week was much ado about nothing.
Theo Epstein and Terry Francona – the twin faces of the Babe’s broken hex – have been jettisoned from Fenway. We can parse the particulars, but the truth is that the remains of a once-brilliant ball club are buried, along with Ruth’s ghost.
The Yankees are better off without the services of free agent slugger David Ortiz. A mix of controversy, age and lineup inflexibility are reasons why he shouldn’t don pinstripes.
