Forum: sports Subject: Re: Red Sox Update: Bobby Valentine the New Skipper

I'm very happy for Bobby. I've met the man many times, and he is one of the kindest and most liked people in all of baseball. I used to go to spring training in Port St. Lucie, FL every year when he was the Mets skipper, and met a lot of the Mets on several occasions. I think I've mentioned before that Al Leiter is a second cousin of mine. Other than Al and Bobby, John Franco was the next nicest ballplayer I met.

I think he will be a perfect fit for the Bosox, and will be much more respected by players than Terry Francona was. They will be a fun team to watch, as usual.

Also, how about Ventura as the White Sox manager? Another great guy for sure, but he I'm not sure if he'll have good managerial skills. I hope so.
