Bobby Valentine has some unflattering things to say about the Red Sox
The way Valentine talks though is as if the Red Sox are headed for a last place finish.
"I have great expectations with this group,'' said Valentine Thursday. "(We're) not the 'best team ever assembled' this year. I don't know if that's good or bad. I know that, over history, that's been good for some and bad some for some.
"It's just what it is.''
I can't translate this one. But here's what I take out of that statement. I have expectations just like the fans. I want to make the playoffs, but don't be surprised if we don't.
Valentine has set up a cushion for himself in case of failure.Valentine should just shut up and manage.
