Hang Up And Listen

Could Bobby Valentine Become the Next U.S. Ambassador to Japan?

And would that really be so bad? Slate’s Hang Up and Listen discusses.

In the Slate Plus bonus segment of Monday’s edition of Hang Up and Listen, hosts Mike Pesca and Stefan Fatsis discuss a recent report that President-elect Donald Trump is considering former Chiba Lotte Marines manager Bobby Valentine as an ambassador to Japan. Does Valentine, who managed the team for seven seasons, have enough experience to take on the role?

Plus, would this pick be better than some of Trump’s other appointments?
