A lot has gone on today in the World of baseball, let's take a look:
The Red Sox hire Bobby Valentine to be their Manager
I'll miss Bobby V in the booth on ESPN. It was nice for a change having a pro Mets voice up there. For the Red Sox, right now, after a collapse, this is the type of manager they need right now. He has the ability to navigate big personalities and he has the ability deal with the media.
The Phillies signed Pat Misch
I always had high hopes for Misch with the Mets, but he never really fully made it. For the Mets, its probably good that he's not around to fall back on.
Nick Evans signs with the Pirates
See Previous Post dedicated to Evans
Royals to Sign Broxton
He would have been interesting to see in a Mets uniform, but a more reliable option would probably work better with the Mets.
