Bobby Valentine resides in his own world. No matter what’s going on around him, Valentine is only concerned with his own little world. So the thoughts and beliefs of the world we all reside in matters not to Valentine.
Case in point: when Valentine got fired by the Red Sox, what did he do? He went out for a bike ride. Why? Because that’s what you do in Bobby Valentine’s world after getting fired.
Though it’s clear to everyone in our world that Valentine’s time in Boston was an utter disaster from the very start, Valentine, in his own little world, believes he did a “hell of a job”. And Valentine said as much during his press conference announcing him as Sacred Heart’s new AD. Which is another conversation in itself.
Valentine, 62, managed the Sox for one season, getting the boot last fall after a disastrous 69-93 campaign. However, he said he doesn’t view his performance as a failure.
“I thought I did a hell of a job in Boston,” Valentine said. “I thought what had to be done there was done except for winning a pennant. But Connie Mack wasn’t going to win with that team.”
Added Valentine: “It’s six months of a 62-year life. It’s six months of a 42-year career in baseball. It’s a blip, a little spot on the radar, as far as I’m concerned.”
You see, in Bobby Valentine’s world, a complete disaster of season is only “a little spot on the radar”.
