Report: Bobby Valentine Loses TBS Gig Over Dumb 9/11 Comments

Illustration for article titled Report: Bobby Valentine Loses TBS Gig Over Dumb 9/11 Comments

Last month, Former Mets manager Bobby Valentine said a bunch of dumb things about how his New York Mets did so much to support New York City in the aftermath of 9/11 while the Yankees sat back and did nothing. We've already demonstrated how flat-out wrong those comments were, and now it appears that they were also damaging to Valentine's career.

Neil Best at Newsday reports that TBS had originally planned to bring Valentine on to work its studio show alongside Keith Olbermann and Pedro Martinez for the MLB playoffs, but ditched those plans because of Valentine's 9/11 comments:

Two people familiar with what went down said Valentine was sunk by comments on WFAN Sept. 11 in which he criticized the Yankees’ response – or lack thereof – in the days after the terrorist attacks of 2001.

Good job, Bobby V. On the bright side, you'll have much more time to take sad bike rides.
