Jerry Remy was once again out for last night's game with the Rays. NESN said he was out because of illness, and didn't say it was related to the time he missed during spring training.
I found it odd that Don Orsillo was paired last night with Buck Martinez. No knock on Buck, who is not a bad analyst, but he does the Orioles games on MASN. How did they let him do a Red Sox-Rays game last night?
I wish all the best to Jerry Remy, and hope he gets back soon. Despite his wacky persona in the Red Sox booth, he is very much a private man away from it. It just ain't the same without the RemDawg in the booth.
And speaking of NESN, Red Sox legend Dave Roberts has officially been added to the network, and will serve a studio analyst. He will make his debut at Yankee Stadium on Monday (how perfect, as he's always been known to do well against the Yankees), and will be in the booth to call a few innings as well.
Welcome aboard, Mr. Roberts.
