Finn's Five Thoughts on Bobby Valentine

Tim Kurkjian, ESPN colleague of V: "It is the perfect time for him. The Red Sox have tremendous talent and nearly unlimited funds, but they need someone to change the culture in the clubhouse that apparently has had too much beer and fried chicken. And the Red Sox need a good will hunter to placate a fan base that is as angry as it is adoring. Wherever Valentine goes, change -- usually for the good -- follows. There is no better salesman. There is no one in the game that has more energy."
