Valentine to join ESPN as commentator
Today's (September 23) NY Daily News is reporting that Bobby Valentine will sign a contract joining ESPN as a commentator, most probably for their "Baseball Tonight" program.

Bob Raissman reports that Bobby V is "on the verge of signing a lucrative multi-year deal with ESPN."

"Valentine, no doubt carrying his bag of disguises, will likely make his debut at the network working in its "Baseball Tonight" studio during next month's playoffs."

"It's a done deal," one source said. "And it should be announced soon."

Here's a link to the complete story: New York Daily News.

My understanding is that the "done deal" is for the playoffs only. Anything after that is still unknown, including a possible triumphant return to Japan next season (or so I'm hoping).
About

This is a site about Pro Yakyu (Japanese Baseball), not about who the next player to go over to MLB is. It's a community of Pro Yakyu fans who have come together to share their knowledge and opinions with the world. It's a place to follow teams and individuals playing baseball in Japan (and Asia), and to learn about Japanese (and Asian) culture through baseball.

It is my sincere hope that once you learn a bit about what we're about here that you will join the community of contributors.
