Red Sox players not happy with Valentine hiring
Found 19 hours ago on Ted's Army: Yardbarker Blogger Network
PLAYERS: Buster Olney, Bobby Valentine
TEAMS: Boston Red Sox

BobbyV
If you thought that after the Sox cleaned house, got a new GM and finally (FINALLY!) hired a new manager, that everyone would be optimistic and ready to start 2012 with a clean slate, you are very very wrong.

ESPN's Buster Olney is reporting that some Sox players aren't too keen on their new manager. Let's dive right in:

As Valentine emerged as a managerial candidate, some Red Sox players have been upset; they've been grumbling to each other, through texts and phone calls.. And the fact is they had no power to do anything about it, because the September collapse completely undercut the credibility of the Red Sox players. If one of them had called the front office to register concerns about Valentine, they might've heard laughter on the other end of the line. The Boston players had complete control of the clubhouse in 2011, and we know what happened.

First off, boo-hoo-hoo for those Sox players that aren't happy with the hiring. They had the ideal manager, and they didn't just take advantage of him, they steam rolled him. Whether it was due to a few bad eggs, millionaire egos or any other reason, the team clearly couldn't thrive under that form of leadership. They left the Sox no choice but to get someone with a different style.

The fact that they're getting pissy over his hiring actually has me a bit giddy. It's like when you got assigned to the "mean" math teacher in high school. The one that asked you questions when you weren't paying attention, gave you detention if you didn't do your homework and just generally made your life hell for two semesters. School wasn't nearly as fun with that teacher, but you probably learned more algebraic equations than you would have otherwise.

There's a very good chance that this could blow up in the Sox faces, if players start acting out, and both the players and Bobby take their gripes public. That's the underlying timebomb with Bobby Valentine. Also, how sad is it that we have to treat this Sox team as if they're a group of unruly 13 year olds? They have no one to blame but themselves.

It's not all negative, though. Buster also has some encouraging words to the disgruntled Sox:

Well, the players should forget about that history, about their preconceived notions of Valentine, and focus on this: Bobby Valentine really cares about baseball; he really wants to win. He will be into every pitch of every inning of every game of every week of every month of the season. He will see everything.

He'll protect relievers from overuse, he'll rest tired position players, he'll use his bench guys. He'll talk, he'll explain, he'll listen.

Let me fix that for you, Buster: "He'll protect relievers from overuse" until he realizes he only has 1 1/2 useful arms in the bullpen. Then it's the Bard show again (unless he's name the closer, of course).

Olney makes some very valid points. This is Bobby's last go-round in the majors. Sure, he's going to run things his way, but he's not going to submarine the team simply to watch it drown. He's taking this job because he wants to win. No one can question his baseball knowledge and experience. The players may not be happy with the methods, but no one is really saying that Bobby V can't win. There's just the potential for a lot of drama along with all of those 'W's.

Buster throws on last cautionary message into his article. And it's an important one:

Cherington must be part of the chain of command. Lucchino has been Valentine's patron saint in this process and is the person most responsible for Valentine getting this opportunity, and now Lucchino must withdraw from the room. He must allow the relationship between Cherington and Valentine to form and to build and to strengthen. Lucchino cannot create a situation in which Cherington is diminished, in which Lucchino becomes the person Valentine reaches out to solve problems and make decisions.

Lucchino is the Joker to... um, OK, I have no idea who Batman is in this situation. I just really wanted to call him the Joker. But that's exactly who he is. The Joker (that's what I'll be referring to him as, from here on out) is the guy that could derail this thing. Not Valentine. Not a group of unhappy players. The Joker.

Unless he wants to name himself the GM and be done with it, it's time for him to saunter back into the shadows from whence he came. He got his guy the gig, now be gone! Just as Buster said, Cherington and Valentine have to form their own bond. And it has to be a legit GM-Manager relationship.

We can't have Valentine knocking on the Joker's door every time he's unhappy with something.

But I'm excited for the Bobby Valentine era. It won't be smooth sailing all the time, but it will be different. I don't need to rehash why that's so important. I'm still firmly entrenched on Team Francona, but my gut tells me that Bobby is the right guy to take over. And the players being upset about his hiring? Well, that just helps confirm it.

"When I need my weather, there is only one place I turn to: EPIC Weather. On the Weather Channel." ~ Andy 'muthafokin' Moore






Lets watch Dom promise joining the Armed Forces, then back out 5 minutes later.


DOM:
I would be willing to enlist, unlike you, point proven .I said it in 2001 and my stance hasn't changed, If somebody attacks American on our soil and gets on tv or net and says come get us you Yankee p*ssies. I would join the military in 2 seconds.

Al-Qaeda isnt a country moron. They are a global organizations of scumbags.

First of all bin ladon didn't take credit for attacks in 2001, he denied it until 2004. When was he elected president of Afghanistan?2000?If so hes had a great 11 run so far... Considering hes been rumored to be in Pakistan for years, he doesn't fit into either of my criteria's.



Dom's daily to do list:

1- Kiss his "wife" on his way out of his house
2- Blame everything on Obama
3- Give no credit to Obama, even when Bin Laden, al-Awlaki, and Gaddafi were taken care of
3- Dump all his work on his secretary
4- Twitter, facebook for 2 hours
5- Post on Yankee/Jets/Knicks blogs
6 - Read conservative blogs and watch Fox
7- Select items from said sources that he lift and pass on as his own
8- Get schooled on his ignorance everyday
9- Spray tan so he's ready to club 24/7/365 for the next epic party that he will attend

Yanks aiming to lower payroll to $189 million
Steinbrenner believes club can win and be under luxury tax
By Adam Berry / MLB.com | 03/01/12 2:12 PM EST

TAMPA, Fla. -- With an eye on the club's stable of young pitchers making an impact in the near future, Yankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner said Thursday that it's a goal to lower the club's payroll to $189 million over the next two years.

Beginning in 2014, baseball's luxury-tax threshold will be set at $189 million as part of the new Collective Bargaining Agreement, and Steinbrenner said the Yankees are aiming to be below that figure.

"I'm looking at it as a goal, but my goals are normally considered requirements," Steinbrenner said. "Is it a requirement with baseball that we be at 189? No, it's not a requirement. But that is going to be the luxury-tax threshold, and that's where I want to be.
"I don't think it's a big surprise that one of my goals has always been to try to lower the payroll," Hal Steinbrenner said. (Getty)

"I don't think it's a big surprise that one of my goals has always been to try to lower the payroll. Plenty of teams win without the kind of payrolls we have. I'm excited about the young kids we have. That definitely helps. We're going to shoot for that.

"We do it, we go into it knowing exactly what we're doing," Steinbrenner said. "But yes, being the only team that does it, I'm just not convinced we need to be as high as we've been in the past to field a championship-caliber team."

Steinbrenner believes that it's a realistic goal and said the Yankees are not "too far off" that number, projecting this year's payroll to be around $210 million. To get there, he said, the young talent, particularly the organization's prized pitchers currently working their way through the high Minor Leagues, will have to become Major League-ready.

The Yankees are already committed to paying four players -- Alex Rodriguez, CC Sabathia, Mark Teixeira and Derek Jeter -- at least $73 million in 2014, and potentially more assuming Jeter's $8 million player option kicks in, giving them a little more than $100 million to work with.

"We've got some room to do things, but I am going to need some of these young pitchers to step up, no doubt," Steinbrenner said. "We're not far off.

"We'll see how these young pitchers -- [Dellin] Betances, [Manny] Banuelos, those guys -- perform toward the end of this year and next year. They're going to play a big part in that. The young kids are going to play a big part in lowering this payroll."

Steinbrenner has seen other clubs win without baseball's largest budget, and he has watched his club's farm system produce plenty of capable players. He believes the Yankees can field just as good of a team without breaking the bank on big-name veteran free agents.

"I'm a finance geek. I guess I always have been. That's my background," he said. "Budgets matter, and balance sheets matter. I just feel that if you do well on the player development side and you have a good farm system, you don't need a $220 million payroll. You don't. You can field every bit as good a team with young talent."

While the 2012 payroll is roughly similar to what it was in 2011, Steinbrenner couldn't hide his excitement over his club's pitching staff and he said the '12 Yankees are better than they were a year ago. He thought the Yankees were actually fortunate in many respects last season, with several starters exceeding expectations and, aside from Rodriguez, most key position players avoiding serious injuries.

The Yankees did sign Hideki Kuroda to a $10 million deal this offseason, but it was only a one-year contract, and that salary will be off their books next year, when someone like Betances or Banuelos should be better prepared for a full-time spot in the rotation.

"All of us want to field the best team we can field," Steinbrenner said. "We're in a tough division, and most of them got tougher from last year to this year. We made the decisions we had to make. There's no doubt I would like to lower payroll. I think we can have, as good as our farm system is now, every bit as good a team. And we always will field a championship-caliber team."
