Red Sox Manager Bobby Valentine Agrees To New York Radio Deal

The strange twists just keep on coming for Bobby Valentine and the Boston Red Sox.

According to a report in the Boston Globe, Valentine has agreed to appear on a weekly radio segment with New York Yankees broadcaster Michael Kay on 1050 ESPN Radio.

Why Valentine would do this is beyond curious. With a fan base that isn't exactly warm and fuzzy towards the City That Never Sleeps, it's odd that Valentine would "fraternize with the enemy".

It's easy enough to point out that Valentine might want to just focus on the task at hand, considering what a disaster took place in Boston last year. The team has to get off to a good start in the eyes of many and stuff like this floating around may cause some distraction.

If Terry Francona did something like this it might be overlooked because of his stature in Red Sox history. Bobby V doesn't have the same luxury.
