Earlier this evening, ESPN had reported that Gene Lamont was no longer being considered for the vacant Red Sox managerial job.  Seeing as how he and ESPN’s Bobby Valentine were the two reported candidates, the other shoe dropped shortly thereafter.  Mike Lynch from WCVB in Boston reports Valentine has agreed with the Boston Red Sox to be their next manager, thus ending his one year stint in the ESPN Sunday Night Baseball booth.  Time will tell whether ESPN replaces Bobby V in the booth or if the leader goes with the twosome of Dan Shulman and Orel Hershiser.  One thing’s for sure, not many Sunday Night Baseball fans will be upset with this move.  It remains to be seen how Red Sox Nation will agree with Bobby V’s arrival.
