Ex-Met Manager Valentine Pitches ‘Bobby Burgers’ In Japan

Former Met manager Bobby Valentine, who owns Bobby V’s sports bar in the U.S., claims to have invented the “wrap” sandwich

It’s bittersweet for any manager to watch his former team march deep into the playoffs in search of the championship he or she couldn’t win. Doubly bitter, we’d imagine, if that manager has resorted to hawking burgers bearing his name in Japan. (There is some consolation: he managed the Chiba Lotte Marines to their Japan Series title in 1995. Lotte also owns the restaurant.)
