Here’s A Nifty Little Article From Late-Yesterday That I’m SURE Will Interest Y’all…

Could Buckner be coming back to the Red Sox?

(The Article) By JIMMY GOLEN, AP Sports Writer —

The most intriguing part of Bobby Valentine’s first news conference as the Boston Red Sox manager: The possibility of making Bill Buckner his hitting coach.

Valentine and Buckner were college roommates who played together in the Los Angeles Dodgers’ system. The new Boston skipper said he would consider the former Red Sox first baseman for his staff.

Despite a 21-year career in which he amassed 2,715 hits, Buckner was best remembered in Boston for his ninth-inning error in Game 6 of the 1986 World Series that helped the New York Mets come from behind and win. The sting of that loss wasn’t diminished until the Red Sox ended their 86-year championship drought in 2004.

Valentine said he watched Buckner’s kids grow up and, “I respect his every opinion, in baseball and worldy matters.”

But he says it’s not about friendship. It’s about who’s best for the job.
