Bobby V learns David Ortiz’ name. And other news.
Everyone’s favorite (see my optimism?) Bobby Valentine’s in the Dominican Republic today- visiting soon to be re-signed (optimism!) DH god David Ortiz. Reportedly, he hit up Ortiz’ golf tournament.
Ortiz has until Wednesday to accept salary arbitration… Bobby V: Get. It. Done. And Papi, stop that crazy talk.
Speaking of the word “done,” this Bobby V thing- it’s kind of done. I mean, it’s not like we can un-hire him. So the constant Google news updates (so and so has an opinion on Bobby V! Guess who doesn’t like Bobby V?! The horrible hiring process of Bobby V!)- kind of irrelevant. Kind of annoying. Kind of the opposite of where we need to be right now. Where we need to be right now? Filling the holes. Filling the fricking holes, America.
So, I have decided to be the change I want to see in the world. I have decided to be an optimist.
And to be thrilled about the Bobby V hire. You heard me. THRILLED.
It’s what Ghandi would want me to do.
So SHUT UP, Brian Cashman. NO ONE WANTS TO HEAR WHAT YOU HAVE TO SAY.
And “anonymous player source,” SHOVE IT.
Because me and Bobby V (think to the Bobby McGee tune)? We’re going all the way to the World Series. And you can jump on the train. Or you can jump off. And Brian Cashman, YOU ARE NOT INVITED.
Dave Magadan, you ARE invited.
Soxies? Up to you. But the Bobby V train is leaving the station.
