Valentine: 'I'm a regular human being'
By: DJ Bean

New Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine said at his introductory press conference Thursday that he doesn't feel he'll need to manage his personality any differently in Boston. 

Valentine said he looks forward to having "tough conversations" with the players when necessary, but said he doesn't know whether he'd consider himself "polarizing," a label that's been commonly applied to the 62-year-old. 

"I have a lot of adjectives [that have been said] about me," Valentine said. "I can't describe them all and I won't even defend them all. Reputation vs. character. I think people who know me, and take the time to get to know me, understand that I have some qualities in my character that are OK. I am not the genius that I've heard people refer to me as.

Francona: Cardinals asked about drug use
By: DJ Bean

Former Red Sox manager Terry Francona joined Glenn Ordway and Michael Holley Thursday on The Big Show to discuss the Red Sox and his future. 

Francona interviewed to become the Cardinals' manager after the World Series before St. Louis hired Mike Matheny. Francona said he was "genuinely excited" to potentially manage the Cardinals, but that his rumored drug use was brought up in the interview. A Boston Globe story that ran following Francona's exit suggested the manager's performance "may have been affected by his use of pain medication."

"The fact that I had to defend myself really hurt me," Francona said of the rumor and the fact that he had to address it with the Cardinals.

Francona added that he was surprised to see the rumor even pop up in the Boston Globe story after speaking with Bob Hohler, the author of the story, the night before it ran.

"When I hung up with Bob, I was under the...

By: DJ Bean
