What did Bobby Valentine the broadcaster say?

Examining what the ex-TV analyst said about his new players

If Josh Beckett and Carl Crawford are still ticked at Bobby Valentine for criticizing them during his role as an ESPN analyst last season, well, get over it.

Beckett does take an eternity between pitches, Crawford’s stance was a tangled mess, and it was Valentine’s job to say so if he thought so. Kudos to him for actually offering an opinion.
