Valentine wants Red Sox to bus it this spring
FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) ' Bobby Valentine always expects his players to bust it. The new manager of the Boston Red Sox also wants his team to bus it this spring.
Valentine says the Red Sox will take the team bus to away games once the exhibitions begin. It's common around the majors for star players to drive themselves to spring training road games, mostly so they can get a fast start home after playing a few innings.
Valentine says there might be exceptions to the new rule. But for the most part, the Boston players will be on the bus.
The Red Sox are coming off a season in which a late collapse cost them a playoff spot.
