Valentine appointed Boston Red Sox manager: reports

(Reuters) - Bobby Valentine has accepted the job as the new manager of the Boston Red Sox, U.S. media reported on Tuesday.

Valentine replaces Terry Francona who left the club in September, after the Red Sox had suffered one of the greatest late-season collapses witnessed in Major League Baseball.
