And if you had today marked on your calendar as the date that we would hear that Red Sox players are beginning to hate new manager Bobby Valentine, you were also right!
Well, if you want to really believe what Schilling had to say in an interview with WEEI.
Former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling, who now provides analysis for ESPN, voiced serious concern about new Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine during an appearance on Tuesday’s Mut & Merloni show.
Schilling said, “I like Bobby. I like him a lot,” after working with Valentine at ESPN last season. However, Schilling said, “I thought that the manager that managed the Mets that I was not a big fan of was now going to be a different manager, and I don’t think there’s anything different at all. And I don’t think that that is going to be conducive to doing well here. There’s a lot of things I think that are happening not just from his perspective, but when you talk to these guys — and I’m still talking to some of these guys — I don’t think this is going well. And I think it’s going bad quicker than I expected it to.”
Curt Schilling loves stirring the pot. Now granted, we know Bobby Valentine isn’t the easiest person to get along with, but Schilling just needs to sit down somewhere.
