Former Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine has lost out on a gig as a studio analyst with TBS.  He was a candidate for the job during the upcoming Major League Baseball Playoffs and World Series, but recent comments about the conduct of the New York Yankees during the 9/11 attacks seem to have cost him that job.

"You couldn't find a Yankee on the streets of New York City," Valentine said in a recent radio interview.  "You couldn't find a Yankee down at Ground Zero."    The Yankees and Major League Baseball have voiced their displeasure with those comments.

TBS has announced that Pedro Martinez and Tom Verducci will join Keith Oberman in the studio for the playoffs.  Valentine was fired by the Red Sox after a disastrous 2012 season.
