At one time Bobby Valentine was one of the brightest up and coming stars in the game of baseball. Injuries hampered those expectations and a new career in coaching and managing began. Valentine had great success as manager with the Texas Rangers for seven years, then with the New York Mets leading an unlikely group to the 2000 World Series against the cross-town rival New York Yankees. Now he is involved in a new kind of race and the final game is played on election day.

The big question now facing both teams, is will they get there? Red Sox are 24-25 since the All Star break. Conversely, the Yankees are 32-16. Both teams are being chased by Seattle, Oakland and the an old division friend stacked with talented youth, the Blue Jays. The Mariners and Toronto are playing great baseball right now while the Yankees struggled to take 1 of 3 games against the Orioles this weekend and were blown out by the Blue Jays on Monday 8-0. The Red Sox have lost 2 straight and continue to flounder.
