Valentine not coaching next year?

He led their team to a title in Japan and they didn't offer him anything to come back? I think he'd be a nice fit in Tampa.

Valentine will coach next year. I think that he'd prefer to stay in Japan and I would think the Marines will try to land him. He's just keeping his options open I think. Plus I think he's a little on the outs with Japanese sports writers making false claims about his contract for next year. The Devil Rays will make a hard push for him, but I'd expect him to stick with Japan.

I'm not knocking anything Japanese, but why would you want to coach in Japan if you got an offer to coach MLB?

Brian McCann will have more value than Jorge Posada regardless of draft position

I keep hearing the Dodgers thrown around. Maybe Bobby V is holding out to team up with Lasorda.

Better sushi is a very clever answer. But just think, in Japan, they have some interesting vending options:

Image
This vending machine has truly bizarre contents... 'used' schoolgirl panties! We had heard that such machines existed but had never seen them. A colleague came across this machine in suburban Tokyo just recently (May 2002). This particular machine is a converted cigarette machine that now takes 10,000 yen notes (about US$80 bills). The current contents run from 1000 to 3000 yen.


Anyway, Japan is a pretty interesting place culturally. And from what I understand, Valentine is all but fluent in the language.

Isn't Benny Agbayani on his Marines team too?

Oh yeah, and the money... he's getting paid a like a bagillion yen a year.

Yes, I was, uh... I was thinking about ordering the tape, the videotape... about the college girls and the... the wild... the wildness. They're going wild or something? Somebody told me... about going wild.
