    Valentine bans alcohol from clubhouse. Essentially, no drinking on the job. When asked how the players reacted, he stated, there were no standing ovations or jeers.
    I'm starting to like this guy.

    now all he has to do is pull 2 starters out of his ass because there are still no 4th or 5th starter

    Actually, there was an article on that the other day, saying that the Yankees did not have a 4th or 5th starter to begin last year. The Sox have three great pitchers at the start of their rotation, granted question marks on two, but I'll take those three and find two more.

    the entire starting pitching staff is overrated just like it was last year. Beckett always breaks down come sept. hes got a nice big shinny name but that doesn't help out on the mound. lester is good for 14 wins at best imo. they are going nowhere fast.

    Pitching staff if anything is underrated coming into this year. Lester has come into camp more in shape than ever, and is ready to take on a bigger role finally. Beckett will be fine with Valentine making sure he doesn't get too lazy. Buchholz is almost forgotten, but when healthy recently he has pitched great. I'm sure we can find a few guys to do decent at the back end of the rotation. People forget Bard was a really good starter in college, and was drafted originally to be one. And Dice-K should be back around the all-star break.

    Dice-K when he comes back could be a big surprise. It's no secret that Francona was unsure how to handle Dice-K and his pitching schedule. But Bobby V will know a lot more about how he did it in Japan, and will probably be able to help him get a schedule that he is more used to in terms of what he does in between starts. He will also make him feel more comfortable, which could really help him.

    Banning booze if overrated. Guys have been drinking beers after games for years. They're grown men and just need to act responsibly.

    There's plenty of work places that have alcohol bans. As a professional athlete, boozing on/off the job is idiotic. That's what the offseason is for.
