The Red Sox 45th Manager Will Be Bobby Valentine


Red Sox Nation can take a collective sigh of relief as the new manager of the Boston Red Sox is set to be named.  And the man to lead this group is none other than 61-year old Bobby Valentine.

As first reported by ESPN’s Karl Ravech, the Red Sox have gone the route of Bobby V and decided to eliminate Gene Lamont from consideration.

Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe reports that no contract is in place as of yet, but a verbal agreement has been reached to make Valentine the 45th manager in Red Sox history.

Valentine, who was recently in Japan, made his way back to the U.S on Tuesday.  He has said all along that he is excited, eager and anxious for the opportunity to manage the Sox.  Well Bobby, it looks like you are going to get your chance.

Welcome aboard Robert John Valentine.  Now, maybe finally the Red Sox brass can get down to business and address other areas of need such as starting pitchers, right field and perhaps a closer.

The winter meetings next week should bring a lot of excitement, news and announcements and as always you can look no further than BoSox Injection to provide you with the latest updates as they happen.
