Rightly so.

Bobby Valentine made some classically insensitive statements about 9-11 on the anniversary of that fateful day.

Valentine basically tried to call out people for over praising the Yankees, when it was the Mets (who he was skipper of at the time) who really helped united NY days later. According to Newsday

Two people familiar with what went down said Valentine was sunk by comments on WFAN Sept. 11 in which he criticized the Yankees’ response – or lack thereof – in the days after the terrorist attacks of 2001.

The comments Valentine made have been debunked left and right. Bobby V seems to be going out of his way to get blacklisted everywhere these days.
