Valentine may return to Japan

Smiley Rosenthal said today that the Yokohama Bay Stars are making a hard push at bringing Bobby Valentine on board as their manager.

How does this affect the Astros? Not so much, says Rosenthal:

Valentine, currently working for ESPN, is not aggressively pursuing the Nationals' opening and is not believed to be a serious candidate for the Astros, sources say.
