Vote: Will Bobby Valentine Manage in Major League Baseball Again?

is out as the manager of the Boston Red Sox, but his days managing major league teams aren’t necessarily over.

In an interview Tuesday with Bob Costas on Costas Tonight, Valentine said he wanted to manage again if the right situation presents itself. Whether a team would want to give Bobby V the right situation, however, is another question. After all, the 2012 season for Valentine and the Red Sox was not a very smooth one.

The Red Sox skipper clashed with his players early and often, most notably when he criticized Mike Aviles during spring training and then questioned Kevin Youkilis‘ commitment early in the season. The criticism of players continued past his tenure with the team, as Valentine also claimed in his recent interview with Costas that David Ortizdecided not to play” toward the end of the 2012 campaign.

Valentine leaves the Red Sox with a career record of 1,186-1,165 as a manager in the big leagues, with one trip to the World Series to his name. The 62-year-old is still a popular figure in Japan, where he led the Chiba Lotte Marines to a Pacific League title, and he was also a successful broadcaster at ESPN before joining the Red Sox. The future could contain many possibilities for Bobby V, but whether or not working in a major league dugout is one of them remains to be seen.
