Bobby Valentine says Jeter's flip play was unnecessary

Boston Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine launched a missle at NY Yankee SS Derek Jeter's 'flip' play:

On Jeter's clutch play, Valentine says he believes the initial throw from the outfield would have got Giambi without the flip. And on the Yankees saying Jeter practiced it, Valentine said "I don't believe it."

“We’ll never practice that,” Valentine said. “I think (Jeter) was out of position. I think the ball gets (Giambi) out if (Jeter) doesn’t touch it, personally. That was amazing that he was there. I bet it’s more amazing that he said he practiced it. I don’t believe it.”

Come on Bobby! You're better than that. Jeter's fall into the stands to rob Boston's Trot Nixon in the 12th inning of a huge midsummer game -- that's the one you want. Dive into the stands? Come on.

He did, however, neuter Alex Rodriguez. Speaking of Jason Varitek's retirement: “And he beat up Alex” referring to Varitek’s famous facial of A-Rod during the 2004 season.

**Update, Bobby has apologized. For the practice comment.
