The “Real Life” workload is high today, so just a few top links to get to.
Mike Lynch of WCVB Channel 5 had the news last night that Bobby Valentine would be the 45th manager of the Boston Red Sox, having been offered and accepted the job while he was in Japan. Dan Shaughnessy in his appearance with Gresh and Zo yesterday was incensed that Valentine was in Japan while still a candidate for the Red Sox job. I guess it worked out.
Bobby Valentine’s one of a kind - Toucher and Rich were making fun of this fawning Valentine piece from Tim Kurkjian on ESPN.com.
Major piece put in place - Nick Cafardo, who was one of the first to be out in front of the Red Sox interest in Valentine, says that now the Sox can get down to business.
Bobby Valentine will change Sox - Gordon Edes says this is a risky pick, but Valentine will certainly change things up.
If Celtics want Chris Paul, now is the time - The other big talk from last night was trade rumors involving Rajon Rondo. Paul Flannery says that if Danny Ainge truly wants Chris Paul, he needs to make his move now.
Three cheers for this win - Greg A Bedard says that the Patriots played a very good all-around game in wiping out the Eagles on Sunday. Wait, Tony Mazz has been telling me all week that the Patriots still SUCK, and that they only won the game because the Eagles SUCK more and Vince Young SUCKS even worse. I’m so confused.
