Shoppach Denies Involvement In Valentine Text
Kelly Shoppach has denied involvement in sending a text message to Red Sox management last month that aired grievances about manager Bobby Valentine.
Shoppach, who has since been traded to the Mets, was linked to the text message in a report over the weekend.
Shoppach claims the text message, which was sent from Adrian Gonzalez's phone, wasn't his doing.
"I'm really disappointed my name was even brought up in that," Shoppach said. "I wasn't behind any text. I actually didn't even attend the meeting. It was on an off day in New York. I stayed back in Texas with my family.
