Valentine Fires Back At David Ortiz's Book Comments

After David Ortiz laid into Bobby Valentine in his new book (Papi: My Story by David Ortiz with Michael Holley), the former Red Sox manager has fired back. Appearing on something called the "Tiki and Tierney Show" (CBS Sports Radio), Valentine seems to claim that Ortiz is being two-faced about his feelings toward the controversial ex-skipper. Said Bobby V.: "Well, I wish he told me three weeks into the season instead of hugging me all the time when he saw me! Yeah, that was a weird situation. I don't know how it could have been about me in spring training, but I've heard a lot of those general comments. But whatever. I hope he sells a lot of books. I hope I help him sell some." This is probably not the end of this 'conversation'.
