I may be in the minority here, but for sheer entertainment value, I really miss this guy.

1 Hahahaaaa! As far as punches go, you beat me to it.

Bobby is more of a Lookatme! kinda guy, I see him in Chi-town if anywhere around here.

Bobby V has his own blog.(via Mike Plugh's excellent Baseball Japan).

I've been thinking about Bobby Valentine a bunch over the last week, especially considering the Yankee soap opera that Cory Lidle's awful accident erased from the headlines. I think Valentine's strengths as a manager outweigh his weaknesses.

I loved Valentine and always thought he got the shaft and even looked upon poorly despite basically runing the relief effort from Shea for at least a whole week before the government got off their ass post-9/11. Which has NOTHING to do with his managerial skills.

I wasn't really the same fan back then so I'm not sure how accurate my judgment of him as a manager would be.

That being said, I have a hard time imagining Jeter doing a single thing Bobby tells him too.

Bobby V. is one of those guys who I ranted against while he was in town, and then instantly missed the moment he left.

He's sort of like Billy without the violent alcoholic rage.
