Bobby Valentine to Mets?

Discussion in the Nichi-Bei forum
Bobby Valentine to Mets?
Now that Willie Randolph has been mercifully relieved as manager of the New York Mets, what are the chances that Bobby Valentine could make a triumphant return to Flushing Meadows?

My fingers are crossed.

I meant no disrespect to Japanese baseball. Everything I have read has led me to believe that Mr. Valentine loves managing there. I have a lot of respect for him as a manager and stategist, and as a Mets fan, I would like to see him return to the organization.

I didn't see a lot of possibility in him going to the Mariners, but he has a close relationship with the Mets and was quoted last month as saying he could see himself coaching the Mets again sometime in the future, although not under current circumstances.

Chiefly I am interested in the Chiba Lotte Marines' climate. Mr. Valentine has a close relationship with the owner? And if he desired he may be able to leave for a season or two? I have heard they discussed a lifetime contract even?

Bobby knows first hand what a total circus the Mets organization is. The Wilpons have not given a manager any real authority in Queens for the last two decades. They say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.

Stay where you are, Bobby V.


This is a site about Pro Yakyu (Japanese Baseball), not about who the next player to go over to MLB is. It's a community of Pro Yakyu fans who have come together to share their knowledge and opinions with the world. It's a place to follow teams and individuals playing baseball in Japan (and Asia), and to learn about Japanese (and Asian) culture through baseball.

It is my sincere hope that once you learn a bit about what we're about here that you will join the community of contributors.
