Bobby V: 'I thought Farrell already had a job'

Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine talked about his future and whether he thinks it will be in Boston in this season's final appearance on The Big Show on Wednesday.

Valentine, who has one more year remaining on his contract, said he does not know whether the Sox will bring him back for next season. 

"I really don't," Valentine said. "It all depends what they're looking for. People have to make decisions, and God bless them. It's not going to be an easy job no matter who's at the helm."

Blue Jays manager John Farrell has long been rumored to replace Valentine, though the former Boston pitching coach is still under contract with Toronto. Rumored friction between Farrell and Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos has led to speculation that the manager could be attainable. 

"John Farrell. Wow, I thought he already had a job," Valentine said when Farrell was brought up. "Maybe there will be a trade, is that what you mean?" 

Asked by Michael Holley what he feels he has done well in his season with the Red Sox, Valentine sarcastically responded "Zero, nothing obviously. Brutal. I've done nothing good." Asked again, Valentine admitted the season has been a struggle but said, "I protected my players as well as anyone could have imagined."

Valentine was asked how he's gotten along with Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington.

"It's been a work in progress all year," Valentine said of his relationship with the first-year general manager. "I think Ben's had as tough a year dealing with all of this roster situation as any general manager ever has."

Added Valentine: "I've never raised my voice to him. .. We haven't had any arguments. He's my boss and he's pointed some things out to me along the way that I think he might have disagreed with and I respected his opinion. I don't know how you judge these things. I think it's been very functional."
