    Re: Bobby V's Impact on the Yankees/Red Sox Rivalry

    Nothing changes. The games meant a lot before and they will mean alot now..and for the future.

    Boston played us well over the years and they will probably continue to do so. And I'm sure they expect the same from us as well.

    Re: Bobby V's Impact on the Yankees/Red Sox Rivalry

    I think the rivalry will remain the same unless one or both teams struggle to win a majority of their other games. I will be interesting to see how he handles the media in Boston and how he handles his first big controversy that always seems to center around these two teams. I bet the media loves this choice for Boston with Bobby.

    Bobby just trying to get the Boston fans on his side right away.
    What we can appreciate now is that the Yankees from 1996-2003 were even more extraordinary than we thought.

    It'll be great to spank him as manager of our biggest AL rivals like we did when he managed our greatest NL rivals.

    Who else do you have in mind? Phillies was a one-shot deal; the thing the Yankees had going with the Braves in the late 1990s (the famous "Team of the '90s" rivalry) has long since dissipated; haven't played the Dodgers in a WS in 30 years. I'd say the Mets are probably it, albeit only because of geography at this point.

    As for Bobby, I thought he might wait at least until spring training to start playing up to the Sullys but I guess I should have known better.

    For all those not in pinstripes, who doesn't?

    Even across the pond you wouldn't believe the venom that gets spat at Yankee fans! You'd think they were jealous or something!

    Historically, it's clearly the Dodgers.

    Currently, I guess I'd rather just say there is no "greatest NL rival." It's like saying there is a "tallest member of the Pedroia family."

    No impact.
    But I'm glad he's managing again. Hope he enjoys the ride this time around because Yanks & sux is a different kind of rivalry when your sitting in the other dugout.

    Actually, if you want to take in the whole scope of baseball history, you could argue the Giants. The rivalry of the 1940s-1970s with the Dodgers was more of a fan thing with only occasional animosity between the teams. The rivalry with the Giants from 1901-c. 1937, except for a brief "armistice" c. 1912-c. 1919, might have been the most vicious rivalry between organizations/ownerships in the history of the sport. The Yankees were forced to play in another city for 2 years because of the Giants. Hell, the location (and very existence) of Yankee Stadium traces to that rivalry.

    Bobby says a lot of things tongue in cheek, and to get a rise from people. He actually is one of the most fan friendly guys you will ever run into if you see him out of the ballpark.

    Valentine Already Tweaking The Yankees

    On Jeter's 2003 ALDS Throw to Posada - "We'll never practice that," Valentine said. "And I think (Jeter) was out of position and I think the ball gets (Giambi) out if he doesn't touch it, personally."

    On Arod/Varitek - "He is a man's man," Valentine said of Varitek. "He was a big hitter when needed. He was a leader of the pitching staff. He was able to beat up Alex. All that stuff is good stuff. He was exactly what he was supposed to be."

    He's basically a .500 manager who never brought a team to a first place finish, that no major league team has wanted for the past 10 years...

    ...but go on about the trash talking Bobby. More class in Boston.
    Whatever you think...
    Well, you're wrong.

    Exactly he's been begging for a job since the Mets let him go

    In 2004, Valentine began his second stint as manager of the Chiba Lotte Marines. On October 17, 2005, he led the Marines to their first Pacific League pennant in 31 years after emerging victorious in a close playoff with the Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks. Nine days later on October 26, the Marines won the Japan Series in a four game sweep of the Hanshin Tigers for the first time since 1974.

    I wonder if Buckner would be willing to advise Valentine the manager to replace his defensively challenged first baseman late in the game when defense is more important than offense?
