Valentine Unhappy With Media Questioning His Integrity
" BOSTON (CBS) – Wednesday was a very trying day for Boston Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine.

His integrity was questioned, and that’s not something Valentine will stand for. And he let the press know his displeasure prior to Boston’s 2-1 loss to the Seattle Mariners, which closed up a 1-8 road trip.

“If anyone in this room wants to question my integrity, I will ask someone to referee,” he told WBZ NewsRadio 1030′s Jon Miller.
