Since sifting through dull newspapers, hyperbolic blogs, and overflowing RSS feeds for meaningful news can be an arduous process, News Net catches and compiles both the amusing and the significant reports that were overlooked this weekend.
• Reports of former Mets skipper and current ESPN personality Bobby Valentine becoming the next manager of the Milwaukee Brewers were all over the media last week; Sports Illustrated reported Sunday that Valentine is a leading candidate, though comments made publicly by both Valentine and Brewers owner Mark Attanasio suggest that he hasn’t been made an offer yet. According to SI, ESPN recently gave Valentine a big raise, and an incentive clause could keep him locked in at the network for the next three years. Other candidates for the Brewers job include White Sox coach Joey Cora, former Diamondbacks manager Bob Melvin, and Angels coach Ron Roenicke.
