Bobby Valentine, Boston Red Sox Reportedly Agree To Terms

The Boston Red Sox have agreed to terms with new manager Bobby Valentine, according to an Associated Press report. The terms of the deal have not yet been learned.

Valentine, who has compiled a 1,117-1,072 record during parts of 15 seasons managing the Texas Rangers and New York Mets, told reporters last week that he believes his experience is an asset.

"One thing you can't teach is experience," Valentine told Boston reporters last week. "I've had bad experiences that I hope I learn from and I've had good experiences that I hope I've learned from.

"Some of those bad experiences, I think I caused. Some of them were caused by the surroundings. Some of the good experiences I had, I had something to do with them. And some of them, I was just happy to go along for the ride.

"I hope like hell I've learned from whatever experiences I've had."
