Dustin Pedroia came to the defense of teammate Kevin Youkilis when he basically put manager Bobby Valentine in his place for making idiotic remarks about the intensity of Youkilis's play.

I am a Yankee fan but the fact remains that Dustin is right. Youkilis busts his butt all the time. Too bad Theo is gone. Bobby V. is already alienating his whole team with his uncalled for idiotic remarks. Sadly for the sox the worst is yet to come.

Way to go Dustin. You are a class guy just like your friend Derek Jeter is for us.

His quote was taken out of context. He answered the question.

Having a teammates back is the same as having your TEAMS back, coach included. This is probably going to be a terrible season for the Sox and it won't be Bobby's fault. Hold hands all you want, Dustin. Your GM left for a reason...

Probably the only smart/cool/funny thing this moron did in his career.

Bobby V is a complete **** **** and I'm glad to see Pedroia come to the aid of Youkilis. Youkilis plays the game so ****ing hard that his body is so broken down and he's not even that old yet. Bobby ain't doing himself any favors here - Fans aren't going to adore him when he knocks a hugely fan favorite.

For those saying Pedroia was dumb to make the comments. I don't think it's a secret that the Red Sox players already aren't big on Bobby V, so I've got no problem when a player comes to the aid of his friend and teammate of about 6 years.

I'm not a Sox fan, but I live in the area so I hear the chatter and the Red Sox are full of immature, selfish, clueless, jokes of baseball players.

The best part of Pedroia's interview was when he said "Maybe that stuff works in Japan." Referencing the fact that Bobby V had to go to Japan for work lol. If you're a Sox fan and you've watched Youks play then you know it is absolutely insane to question that guys commitment. Absolutely absurd. He's the definition of hard work but his body has taken a beating over the years due to the style of which he plays.

I am a Yankee fan big time. I hope the Sox never win another game against us and they never make the playoffs again. LOL That is the silly part of the rivalry.

Putting that aside and being honest, almost any Yankee fan knows how good of a ballplayer Youkilis has been and his buddy Dustin is even better. Every time either one of them came up to bat in a close game with the Yanks all Yankee fans thought the same thing...."Oh sh#t !

I don't want to turn this into a Yankee/Red Sox love thread but fans from both teams know in the W.B.C. they and Jeter started being friends.
Makes sense. Rivalry aside, three players who only know how to play the game one way....the right way. Let's not forget that Bobby V. dumped on Derek's famous 'flip play' just before the season.

And to think you guys lost a class act like Terry Francona for this clown.

I mean even before he came to Boston he fired shots over Beckett and Crawford's bow as an analyst. At the WBC there were practices where Jeter and Peds would stay late to work on DP's. The certainly grew a respect for one another. I remember reading a couple articles on it. I wish I could find them now.

This happened once before you know. But is was German and Brittish troops..not Yankee and Sox fans. Enjoy the season.
__________________________________________________ ______________
Christmas truce was a series of widespread unofficial ceasefires that took place along the Western Front around Christmas 1914, during the First World War. Through the week leading up to Christmas, parties of German and British soldiers began to exchange seasonal greetings and songs between their trenches; on occasion, the tension was reduced to the point that individuals would walk across to talk to their opposite numbers bearing gifts. On Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, many soldiers from both sides as well as, to a lesser degree, from French units independently ventured into "no man's land", where they mingled, exchanging food and souvenirs. As well as joint burial ceremonies, several meetings ended in carol-singing. Troops from both sides were also friendly enough to play games of football with one another.[1]

The truce is seen as a symbolic moment of peace and humanity amidst one of the most violent events of modern history. It was not ubiquitous, however; in some regions of the front, fighting continued throughout the day, while in others, little more than an arrangement to recover bodies was made. The following year, a few units again arranged ceasefires with their opponents over Christmas, but the truces were not nearly as widespread as in 1914; this was, in part, due to strongly worded orders from the high commands of both sides prohibiting such fraternisation.

How in the ****ing blue hell do you know that they don't act like men? How can you have any knowledge of how the clubhouse and how the team has been from April until present?

The point is that Bobby Valentine is about as ignorant as they come by calling out a player the way he did. I don't see other GOOD managers in the league doing it. Never heard Tito do it, and he won two World Series titles. I never heard Joe Girardi do it, and he's got one ring.

How the clubhouse has been in April is irrelevant. They're being "punished" for what they did last year. If a kid sneak out one weekend, his parents ground him the next weekend. Last year's collapse, when they most definately did not behave like men in their professional lives, was the weekend they snuck out. Bobby Valentine's new rules are the grounding.

And in what way is how Tito or Girardi manage at all relevant. Bobby V is Bobby V. Not Tito. Not Girardi. And you're example is incomplete. Ozzie Guillen calls out players and he has a ring. Every manager has to do it their own way. This is how Bobby V does it. You might not think it will work, but his best bet at success is to do what he thinks is best. The Red Sox hired a manger who acts like this because the players proved last year that they can't handle someone who will let them police themselves. They're not capable of living up to their end of that bargain.

So what? The Yankees collapsed 100% because they played poorly, but at least it wasn't at all because they acted like high schoolers rather than profssional players.

The team that's 1 game behind the Yankees, and 2 behind 1st place, or a different one? Also, the most WS in the AL East for the past decade.

I didn't mention their record at all as a reason they're a laughing stock. They're a laughing stock because of the way the whole organization handles themselves. The entire Red Sox organization is woefully incapable of dealing with the local media. Everything in "Red Sox Nation" is communicated and handled poorly. The players, manager, and executives struggle so much to adapt to their business environment.

You don't say? If your going to bait another team, make sure your team is actually doing good. Or has been better in the past decade.

Oh, okay.

Now it makes sense.

Bobby Valentine is punishing the players for something he does not know the full story of by calling out players to the media. This is no doubt a great way to motivate players to being better and playing as a team.

You want to "punish" them if you're Bobby V? That's fine. I'm on board with him being a "hard ***" type of manager because Francona was to lax last year. But do it by ripping the players apart to their faces, not allowing alcohol in the clubhouse, setting curfews, making them take the team bus in Spring Training, etc. Calling a player out publicly the way he did, and of all people one of the hardest workers I've ever seen in my time watching the Red Sox in Kevin Youkilis was dumb and ill founded.

The fact that he recanted using one of the biggest BS excuses to say how we "misinterpreted" what he was saying is proof enough that the ENTIRE ORGANIZATION knew he was wrong - Thus why our team captain Dustin Pedroia sided with Youkilis publicly, as did Ben Cherington, the GM.

One collapse is very recent and the majority of the players involved are still on the team. The other happened 7.5 years ago and many of the players on that team no longer play for the Yankees.

Let me try this one more time.

1. This thread is about Bobby Valentine, Kevin Youkilis, and Dustin Pedroia.

2. Valentine made a comment calling out Youkilis.

3. Pedroia makes a comment defending his teammate.

4. OP thinks what Pedroia did was classy.

5. hugepatsfan thinks Pedroia's comment is not a good thing as his "this is not how we do things around here" attitude contributed to the Red Sox collapse last season. In other words Pedroia and the Red Sox need to accept change.

Bobby V calls out players because that's his style. He has to be true to himself. If that's how he believes in managing, that's how he has to do it. I personally don't believe in it, but no manager is ever going to be successful if they don't stick at least somewhat to what makes them who they are. Obviously you have to adjust to the team to a certain extent, but it will never work if you don't do you.

Calling Youk out isn't really related to what happened last year at all. The connection I'm drawing between the 2 is Pedroia's comments about it - treating Bobby V as an outsider, inplying that he's the one that needs to learn how things are done. No. The Red Sox showed last year that they are the ones that needs to learn how things are done. And from what I've heard out of the players, dating way back before Pedy's most recent comments, tells me that they still don't get it. There seems to be very little accountability on that team, and Pedy's comments to me are just an extension of that.

Drinking beer isn't manly? And who are you to call people men when you have A-Rod on your favorite team?



Everyone... If your team hasn't been as good as the other team in recent times... Then why should you be talking? :confused:

Being a man =/= acting manly.

I don't say being a man as in the different between male and female; I say it as the difference between acting like a grown up and a child.

Drinking beer is "manly." Sneaking beer into work is not what a man does though; That's what a high school KID does. Admitting fault and acknowledging you made mistakes is what a man does; Publicly calling for the head of the "snitch" and not acknowledging any personal mistakes (cough... Becket... cough) is what a child does.

You can rip on A-Rod all you want, but he's for the most part always been accountable and professional in regards to his career. His personal life has had its questionable moments, but professionally he hasn't offered too much to complain about.

Hey dudeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! Venice Beach must be boring tonight. Maybe you can check out Universal Studios.
If not......surfs up! Little wine, cheese and group hug at sunset. Like for sure...who cares about Bobby V. ?

Beautifully done. Not only is that awesome, and hilarious, but yeah, what's the point of just posting in a thread to say who cares. Why go to a website like prosportsdaily if you have a "who cares" attitude about stuff like this? Anyways, great work.

Let me try this one more time.

1. This thread is about Bobby Valentine, Kevin Youkilis, and Dustin Pedroia.

2. Valentine made a comment calling out Youkilis.

3. Pedroia makes a comment defending his teammate.

4. OP thinks what Pedroia did was classy.

5. hugepatsfan thinks Pedroia's comment is not a good thing as his "this is not how we do things around here" attitude contributed to the Red Sox collapse last season. In other words Pedroia and the Red Sox need to accept change.


Do you see how mentioning the Red Sox collapse is relevant but the 04 Yankees is not? If you cannot see it then there is no point carrying on this discussion.

From the outside looking in (don't care about the Red Sox at all, I think they are given waaaaaaaaaay too much publicity as it is)

This is a stupid situation based on the words of a stupid person (Bobby V) that is blown up by stupid people (ESPN).

1. Who cares? They are professionals they better work it out, otherwise they shouldn't be in the positions they are in.
2. Words appear to have been taken out of context, so it's very possible it wasn't correct in the first place.
3. The media is like a high school teenage girl, gossip, gossip, gossip, stir the pot
4. Bobby V is a bad manager, and that is probably going to continue.
5. I think the Red Sox have a really bad season on their way to a really bad decade.

He only brought it up to get Sox fans pissed off. Do you not see that? So I countered it, with a bigger, and more important collapse. Damn.

Being a man =/= acting manly.

I don't say being a man as in the different between male and female; I say it as the difference between acting like a grown up and a child.

Drinking beer is "manly." Sneaking beer into work is not what a man does though; That's what a high school KID does. Admitting fault and acknowledging you made mistakes is what a man does; Publicly calling for the head of the "snitch" and not acknowledging any personal mistakes (cough... Becket... cough) is what a child does.

Yes, if you rip on my players, I'll rip on yours. You know, going to strip clubs while being married.

How do you know he only typed that to piss off Red Sox fans? I remember hugepatsfan from his postings in the Yankees forum and he often had good things to say about the Red Sox. He was stating his opinion on the relevant discussion in this thread. It is not his problem to worry if his words get some Red Sox fans upset.

Drinking beer isn't manly? And who are you to call people men when you have A-Rod on your favorite team?



Everyone... If your team hasn't been as good as the other team in recent times... Then why should you be talking? :confused:

For the record, the Yankees have been better than the Sox in recent times.

Have you not been watching baseball the last 2 or 3 years?...

So if I said something about the Yankees 04 collapse out of nowhere, you wouldn't respond?

Look you are not getting my point even though I clearly explained it to you. There is no point on carrying on this discussion because you refuse to acknowledge the obvious connection to the Red Sox collapse in hugepatsfan's post.

What if I only used 1 smiley?

You're too funny dude.

By the way, I don't need "confidence" when I'm pointing out the obvious, but if me using 2 or more smilies leads you to believe something different about my post, then I apologize. I wouldn't want you to think that I didn't/don't mean what I say...;) :D :lift:

Sorry if you don't understand something someone else is trying to explain to you, over and over and over again.

Yankees1903 tried to clear it (hugepatsfan comments) up for you many times, and you probably still don't understand. No need to get angry, just read that post over and over again, and maybe it'll sort itself out in your head?...

I'm beginning to think he only sees what he wants to see in these posts, and that's about as far as it goes in his head. I mean, a 10 year old can clearly understand what you are trying to explain, and yet this dude is just not getting it.

It might be something in his drinking water?...

Oh, really? What did Pedrioa say that was bad? Pedrioa is the face of this franchise. Bobby hasn't even coached 10 games.

As much as I like Pedrioa and dislike Bobby V., I think Bobby needs a break on this one. Pedrioa said of BV that "this isn't how we do things around here," which is kind of a dumb thing to say since "the way they did things out there" led to drinking in the clubhouse and one of the all-time worst regular season collapses. Maybe Bobby V is right: things need to change out there.

I would love to see you go out in public and wink, and stuck your tongue out, then clap to finish it off. It's just not weird and I think it makes you look childish.

Calling out a guy that has done everything he can for his franchise is not how we run things here in Boston.

You're actually sitting here and defending Pedrioa, are you kidding me. He's got the nerve to speak out against his manager but didn't have the balls to speak out to his teammates when they were ****ing around last year and costing Francona his job( a guy who managed them to both World Series Championships). Can you say Jack***.

It's only because Bobby Valentine is seen as an outside among the Red Sox, by both the team and the fans.
