Valentine’s Day On Monday? Not So Fast.
Yesterday, there were several reports circulating that Bobby Valentine was leaving his job at ESPN and had reportedly agreed to a four-year deal with the Florida Marlins.
It was further reported that Valentine would debut as the Marlins manager on Monday when the Fish meet the Mets in San Juan, Puerto Rico to open a three-game series.
Valentine is expected to replace Fredi Gonzalez who was fired as Marlins manager on Wednesday and replaced by interim manager Edwin Rodriguez.
However, the Palm Beach Post reports that Marlins beat writer, Joe Capozzi, reached Valentine via text message and that Valentine denied the reports saying that they are “absolutely not true.”
Valentine will interview with the Marlins this weekend however, and remains the frontrunner for the job.
Is it just me, or does anyone else feel like having Valentine back in the NL East will somehow end up biting the Mets on the ass?
