Bobby V is definitely free

I think this was already more or less a certainty, but now it’s more and more a certainty:

Bobby Valentine says he won’t be back with the Chiba Lotte Marines next season even as the Japanese team’s fans lobby management to keep him . . . In a statement on his Web site, Valentine says leaving the team “is best for the Chiba Lotte Marines.”

Given what’s happened to the Mets this year, is there any doubt that this will foment a major “Bring Bobby Back!” push among the New York tabloids? That he’ll be compared to post-Gaul, pre-Rubicon Caesar, poised to come back and, um, do whatever Caesar did before he got murdered (sorry, I don’t really remember much of that stuff. I got all of my humanities credits in English)?

Whatever they do, I suspect that we’ll see Bobby Valentine a lot next year, be it on ESPN or in a Major League dugout.

In early 44 BC he was assassinated. So, OK, Bobby V is Caesar. Mineta is obviously Pompey and I would guess that the Wilpons are the Senate. Basically Valentine… Read more »

The MEts are firing Bernazard, according to SNY.  Which is just another reason to bring Bobby V back:  he would’ve known enough to hide behind his fake mustache before ripping his shirt off.

(As an aside: does anyone else think Bobby sounds like Kermit?)
