Bobby Valentine

The Chiba Lotte Marines‘ fans love Bobby Valentine. If you look at the Marines’ record with Valentine at the helm it isn’t very impressive. This year they finished out of playoff contention with a record of just 62 wins and 77 losses. They have won their league (of six teams) just once in Valentine’s six years.

Valentine is done with managing the Marines despite the fans efforts (including signing petitions) to keep him around. Look for Bobby to be in front of a camera next year or maybe managing in the Majors. If the Marines improve next year (and it seems like they have nowhere to go but up) the fans will likely forget him soon.

But he is getting a nice send off, despite his mediocrity.
