Jess Thomas and Jared Scali held down the show without me this week and had a lot to say about the hiring of Dave Dombrowski and what they think the future holds for him and the team.

AA Classic: Don Orsillo, Jerry Remy, and the pizza incident

Don Orsillo is being removed from Red Sox broadcasts on NESN, and we’ve already outlined how upset Red Sox fans are. With that being said, we thought it would be appropriate to remember one of the more absurd sequences in the history of the Orsillo/Jerry Remy partnership. Here’s the entire “here comes the pizza” affair, during which Orsillo and Remy hilariously broke down...

David Ortiz: 'It sucks' Hanley Ramirez has been criticized

David Ortiz thinks everyone should lay off Hanley Ramirez. Ramirez has been criticized time and again this season for his shoddy defense in left field. He’s now embracing a potential transition to first base with open arms, and Ortiz, who worked with Ramirez during pregame drills earlier this week, isn’t surprised by the veteran’s team-first mentality. “Hanley has a good...

Wade Miley Can’t Get the Win for the Red Sox

The Red Sox hoped to get two wins in a row against the White Sox.  They had Wade Miley on the mound and while he had a lead for part of the game, he wasn’t able to hold onto it when he gave the lead back to the White Sox in the bottom of the 7th. The White Sox scored first last night and when all was said and done they would score last.  The White Sox scored a single run in the...

Real tweets from real people: Red Sox Nation is pissed about Don Orsillo being replaced

On Tuesday, news began to trickle out early in the day that NESN would be replacing long-time Boston Red Sox play by play announcer Don Orsillo with radio voice (and ESPN broadcaster) Dave O’Brien. Red Sox fans responded to NESN in a calm, reasonable manner. Or not. Red Sox Nation was understandably furious, not just about Orsillo’s ouster but also the matter in which he was...

Hanley Ramirez is moving to first base for the Red Sox

Boston isn’t punting on Hanley Ramirez quite yet. In fact, the Red Sox intend to change Ramirez’s position in 2016 (after changing it from shortstop to left field in 2015), and will shift him to first base. Hanley IS moving to first base by next year, he said. Maybe some this year. He's on board. "I'm looking forward to it." — Michael Silverman (@MikeSilvermanBB) August 25...

Don’t Test Jackie Bradley Jr.’s Arm, Son

Photo by Matt Stone Another lousy Red Sox game in a lousy season on a lousy day in which we learned Don Orsillo will be leaving NESN at the end of the year. The only return on my four hour viewing investment: a sweet play by Jackie Bradley Jr. to gun down a runner from right field. Stuff like this makes me happy for the future. You know, the Orsillo-free future. The post Don...

NESN replaces Don Orsillo with Dave O’Brien in Red Sox booth

NESN shocked the baseball world today when reports made the rounds that the network would be replacing very popular play by play man Don Orsillo on Red Sox telecasts next season.  Those reports were confirmed this evening when NESN announced that ESPN veteran and current Red Sox radio announcer Dave O’Brien would be taking over the television duties in 2016. Here is NESN...

Junichi Tazawa- Not a Closer

“It’s a learning experience for (Tazawa)—-he’s going to be better off for this moment”, Red Sox interim manager Tony Lovullo was quoted as saying . I can’t agree. Sunday’s implosion against Kansas City made his record 2-6 with a 3.74 ERA (high for a relief pitcher). His WHIP has risen to 1.128. Amazingly, he has blown 6 saves out of 8 chances. Who can replace...

Don Orsillo Out at NESN, Red Sox Ownership Continues to Step On Our Nuts

As this season continues to circle the bowl, waiting for inevitable early-October flush, all of Red Sox Nation is in agreement that change is needed, and very likely coming before the region’s first snow. But the first salvo of that change has proven to be straight out of left field: NESN has opted to not renew Don Orsillo’s contract after this season. Meaning DO will no longer...

Hanley Ramirez taking practice reps at first base

Hanley Ramirez’s transition to left field has been pretty dreadful thus far, but it looks as though the Boston Red Sox might be taking steps to change that. Ramirez was spotted taking reps at first base ahead of Tuesday’s game against the Chicago White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field under the tutelage of David Ortiz and infield coach Brian Butterfield. Things that make you go...

One Man’s Trash: The Shawshank Redemption

While the 2015 version of the Boston Red Sox has been a complete disaster for the most part, one redeeming element of this year's team has been the surprising play of rookie Travis Shaw (+37.4%), who was the most added player in fantasy baseball over the past week. Entering yesterday's play, he's been one of MLB's best offensive players in the 2nd half of this season, producing...

Report: NESN Cutting Ties with Red Sox Voice Don Orsillo

Standing as the gatekeeper between the fans and the organization, the broadcaster is the lifeblood of the team. Through winning and losing their voices resonates authoritatively and becomes the soundtrack of summer. For the Boston Red Sox it seems that voice will change on NESN entering the 2016 season, as Dennis and Callahan of WEEI in Boston report that play by play man Don Orsillo...

Red Sox 3B Sandoval tumbles over tarp to make catch in foul territory

Pablo Sandoval has had a rough first season in Boston, especially defensively. But on Monday he provided a glimpse of why former Red Sox GM Ben Cherington believed enough in him to award him with a five-year, $95 million contract this past offseason. Nothing --€“ not the tarp, not the wall, not gravity -- was going to stop Sandoval from catching this foul ball on Monday evening...

Pablo Sandoval and the World’s Unluckiest Tarp

Lots of great things came out of last night’s 5-4 Red Sox win over the White Sox. Joe Kelly turned in his fifth straight quality start and Rusney Castillo went an impressive 3-for-4, knocking in all 5 of the Red Sox’ runs. But for me, the game’s most memorable image came when Pablo Sandoval dropped a twenty-megaton belly flop on a tarp along the third base side while snaring...

Is Joe Kelly turning his season around?

Jorge CamargoContributing WriterWinslow Townson/APRecently, Boston has been playing like a good baseball team. The remaining games are kind of pointless because the Red Sox are obviously out of contention (despite Lovullo's recent comments) but it's still nice to see some rookies like Travis Shaw and Blake Swihart swinging the bat well and pitchers like Joe Kelly turning their...

'Vanillas In The Mist', Red Sox Lose Two Leads, Fall, 8-6

(Getty Images)It was a rainy, extremely wacky loss at Fenway Park today. Up by two runs in the ninth, the Red Sox pulled off one of the oddest plays in years—turning a misplayed wall triple into an inside-the-park-out-at home. That was the first out. Then Junichi Tazawa pitched like he was in the Little League World Series, giving up four earned runs on six hits. Lead gone, Sox...

Matt Barnes Shelled Again, Red Sox Fall to KC, 6-3

(Getty Images)Matt Barnes is young guy who throws hard. Unfortunately, he's become one-dimensional in his recent MLB stint with the Red Sox. Major league hitters can handle that—and have in Barnes' last two starts. As a result—after yesterday's 6-3 loss—Barnes was sent back down to AAA Pawtucket. Boston's offense made a game of it, with Mookie Betts (solo HR) and Xander Bogaerts...

Clay Buchholz might not pitch again for Red Sox in 2015 season

This embed is invalid   " /> BOSTON — Clay Buchholz’s 2015 season might be over. Or maybe not. Buchholz, who hasn’t pitched since July 10 because of a right elbow strain, is in the midst of a “no-throw situation,” acting Red Sox manager Torey Lovullo revealed before Friday night’s game against the Kansas City Royals at Fenway Park. According to Lovullo...

Dombrowski faces immediate challenges as Red Sox president

On Wednesday, the Boston Red Sox officially announced Dave Dombrowski as their new team president. It was a rather stunning move, if for no other reason than its timing. Dombrowski was rumored to be considered for other opportunities throughout MLB and Boston already had a general manager in Ben Cherington. But owner John Henry saw the chance to bring in a more proven commodity...

Is Koji Uehara Is Wearing His Retirement On His Arm?

Red Sox closer Koji Uehara is out for the year. Back on August 7th, he was nailed by a line drive to his pitching arm—and was eventually diagnosed with a broken right wrist. But, maybe the 40-year old doesn't have to worry about his next contract—considering what's on his injured arm. The bright yellow cast is adorned by autographs by every player on the 2015 Red Sox squad. Now...

JABO: The Downfall of Ben Cherington

There’s a new trend in baseball: fire your outgoing GM on a Tuesday. Two weeks ago, it was Dave Dombrowski getting the axe in Detroit, and last week, the Brewers announced they were going to move Doug Melvin out of the top spot in baseball operations department. Yesterday, the Red Sox joined the Tuesday makeover party, announcing that they were bringing in Dombrowski to serve as...
