BOSTON — On Thursday, the Red Sox introduce new general manager Bobby Valentine. The front office says Valentine, former manager of the N.Y. Mets, Tex. Rangers and Chiba Lotte Marines and until recently an ESPN analyst, has what it takes to whip the troubled team back to the top in 2012... with no September breakdowns this time. It's a tall order.
And frankly, Yankees fans don't think Valentine can do it.
