Bobby Valentine: That’s Not Gonna Happen
Former MLB manager and current NBC Sports analyst Bobby Valentine joined The Bald Face Truth today to discuss his America’s past time!
Bobby V as he’s become to be known, was completely unfiltered today when talking about pitcher safety and why you won’t see the MLB do anything about it; “That’s not going to happen [MLB instituting safety precautions]. Let’s be real. The best thing a pitcher could do is learn to field his position and learn it when he’s young. Use the glove to get it in front of your face if the line drive is coming at your face or your head."
Valentine went on to say, “You’re only 60 feet away. You’re not going to change the distance, and you’re sure as hell not going to be able to put a screen in front of them.”
Valentine also discussed the struggles the Dodgers have been facing and remains optimistic about their season, “The Dodgers are going to get on a run, they lost a couple key parts but they’ll be playing with a full deck before it’s all over and they’ll be a good team. They [the Dodgers] will be in it at the end, I don’t know if they’re going to win it, but they will be in it!”
