Bobby Valentine Feels Sense of Pride as New Red Sox Manager, Ready for Fresh Start


Bobby Valentine knows that he'd have to have something wrong with him not to take the Red Sox' managerial job. When a job like that becomes available, you have to jump at the opportunity.

Jump is exactly what the vetaran skipper did when he took the Boston opening, and now he's hoping to turn around a team that struggled mightily down the stretch. He'll certainly be doing so with a team that will look a bit different when it takes the field this spring.

One of those notable changes will come at shortstop, as new general manager Ben Cherington sent Marco Sctuaro to Colorado, just one of a handful of moves this offseason.

Valentine and Cherington  both discussed the change as part of the Red Sox Town Hall. See more in the video above.

Aetna Strikeouts for A Cause

For every strikeout by a Red Sox pitcher at Fenway Park in June, Aetna will donate $250 to Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. Through June 25, the donation mark stands at $30,000.

Through their continued efforts in the local community, Aetna is helping to build a healthier world -- one city and one strikeout at a time.
