You never quite know what Bobby Valentine is going to say, so Salem State University could be in store for some interesting conversations on Thursday.
Valentine will join NESN’s Peter Gammons in speaking at the university as part of its popular public lecture series.
The Salem State series this year is celebrating 30 years of bringing nationally and internationally recognized people to its North Shore campus, but this particular lecture should be quite the treat for Red Sox fans who watched Valentine serve as the club’s manager during a disappointing 2012 season. Valentine was often controversial, and he’s been the subject of plenty of back-and-forth already this offseason after being let go by the Boston organization.
