"Valentine was asked about the incident by a representative of the owners, a club source said, with the team concerned that perhaps the manager was being too harsh with the younger players... The club source also said that the snitch was a current player. So that means it was not Kevin Youkilis, Middlebrooks' predecessor who was traded to the Chicago White Sox in June. " -- Michael Silverman, Boston Herald

"[Middlebrooks] came into the dugout, he made a couple of errors, and I said, 'Nice inning, kid.' I had thought I had established a relationship with him where I could say something like that and he would try to smile or relax a little. Maybe he grimaced, I don't know, but somebody overheard it and decided that it was a very dreadful thing for a manager to say to a young player, and decided to repeat it a few times, this dreadful thing." -- Bobby V poking at the rat in the clubhouse last night

"As a player, that's a swing. I'm taking a swing at that comment. And I'm not talking about just Bobby, if anybody had said that... Bobby's different. He runs and beats to a different drummer. ... I never came off the field after giving up five runs and had a manager say, 'wow, that's a nice inning." I never heard anybody approach it like that. ... I would've swung. " -- Curt Schilling on Valentine via

"Matter of fact, ownership did come and said they heard that when Will Middlebrooks made two errors in a game and he came off the field and into the dugout, I said, 'Nice inning, Will,' and maybe that upset him." -- Bobby V opening the Sox Pandora's Box on WEEI's Big Show 8.1.12

"... Bob McClure was on his two-week vacation -- I'm sorry, not vacation, his two weeks away from the team." -- More not-so-subtle shots from Valentine on WEEI's Big Show 8.1.12
