Bobby Valentine On Terry Francona: 'You're Getting Paid Over There For Saying Stuff'

Boston Red Sox current head coach Bobby Valentine was asked about former Red Sox manager Terry Francona's comments about his no beer policy. Francona indicated that he thought Valentine's policy was a PR move after last season's collapse.

Valentine said about Francona's comments:

"Any comments on that? You need a comment? My opinion, if it was PR move you mean?" said Valentine. "I don't know. How was it PR? Well, you know, I don't really have a comment on that. It means like 20 teams are looking for PR and that's why they're making good decisions. I don't have a comment on that."

"Remember, you're getting paid over there for saying stuff. You get paid over here for doing stuff," said Valentine. "I've done both." (via WEEI)
