I never, in my wildest dreams or worst nightmares thought I'd EVER say this, but, gulp, here goes... Bobby Valentine, i agree w/ you 100%...

in response to andro mac's derogatory comments about mlb's efforts to continue to share our precious beautiful pasttime with the rest of the world by slating opening day for two clubs in japan, (mac said it was based on greed, and refused to participate...) groucho, er, bobby v. said:

"I don't get that stuff about greed... we're all in it for the same purpose -- that is to have our game expand, not only for the international player pool to expand, not only for the revenue to expand, but for the idea of baseball and the idea of baseball to expand.

"So I think it is a very limited thought for someone to think this only about a dollar; this is much bigger than a dollar or the person who thought in those terms."

-Bobby Valentine, Mutts, uh, Mets Manager http://www.Bronx-Bombers.com/ubb/wink.gif

Mr. Valentine, i tip my hat to you sir...

Mac, you are not bigger than this game... kids, people in Japan LOVE baseball... Babe Ruth toured Japan, Joe DiMaggio toured Japan... You are NOT bigger than this game...

Baseball is a beautiful sport... Look at the yankees sir... It's our pasttime, it's always going to be a reflection of America spirit and innovation... But every day, it also becomes more and more a reflection of America's diversity...

look at the Yanks... Look around the league... Look at the finest pitcher in the game today pedro martinez... Limited thinking like yours would likely have prevented loudmouth pedro http://www.Bronx-Bombers.com/ubb/biggrin.gif from ever being exposed to this beautiful sport... Look at the finest closer in the game Rivera, or super phenomenal talent like Larry walker or sammy sosa...

Baseball is truly a beautiful sport, and as a apart of this league, you should be proud to display America's GREAT sport to the rest of the world for one or two lousy games... but no, you're no better than joey belle and angeloser who tanked an exhibition game against a PROUD cuban team last seas... selfish mac...

after baseball turned a blind eye to your steroid induced hr record*

shame on you mac... http://www.Bronx-Bombers.com/ubb/frown.gif

as mark grace said,

"I want to thank Mark Mcgwire for saying no and giving us the opportunity to come over here.

If Ernie Banks were asked to come over here, I think i know what he would've said: Let's play two.'"

I thought is was ironic to hear a baseball player call somebody greedy.

Bobby V. anticipates an anti-jetlag drug to be developed soon and to greatly contribute to the glabalization of baseball. Yeah Bobbie-e-e-e-e-e-e!!!!
