The BobbyTerry ChroniclesMORE: RBs wont make or break Pats Season-saving win (Take 2)

By now, you've heard about the weekend dramanon-drama between Terry Francona and Bobby Valentine.

You know that Francona was seen yukking it up in the Sox clubhouse on Saturday afternoon, and then sent Bobby V. a text message saying that he was sorry. You also know that while both men admit that the texting took place, neither is willing to expand.

That's where I come in. Through some friends at the phone company, I've obtained the record from Sunday's text conversation between the last two Red Sox managers. Enjoy!
