Valentin May Retire
Per John Delcos, Jose Valentin’s latest injury may end his career.
Valentin, who was coming back from a knee injury that ended his 2007 season, as well as battling shoulder tendinitis, has now been diagnosed with a pinched nerve in his neck. The injury could require surgery, knocking him out until at least June.
“I’m going to be out again for three more months, come down there and get rehab?” Valentin asked. “By that time, it’s already four months into the season. What do I have to go down there and prove? Nobody’s going to give me a contract for two months just in case somebody got hurt.”

What does anyone think about having Valentin stay with the team as a coach? Personally I think he has a managerial career in his future.
