Popular Red Sox sideline reporter Jenny Dell has been reassigned by NESN and will no longer be doing Red Sox games, likely because of her relationship with third baseman Will Middlebrooks.
Dell and Middlebrooks were long rumored to be dating, but the boyfriend-girlfriend relationship was not confirmed until December. In an article about Dell receiving an extension from NESN, The Boston Globe mentioned that she and Middlebrooks were dating and living together.
On Thursday the Boston Herald said that Dell had been reassigned in a move that was mutually agreed upon by both parties.
“NESN has an active search for a Red Sox sideline reporter,” spokesman Gary Roy told The Herald. “Jenny Dell, a multi-talented on-air personality, is anchoring ‘NESN Sports Today’ and handling other assignments for NESN.”
The Herald says Dell and Middlebrooks have been dating for nearly a year.
The Red Sox sideline reporter job for NESN is an excellent job and career launching point of sorts. Prior to Dell, Heidi Watney, Tina Cervasio and Hazel Mae all held the position and have gone on to land other great TV jobs.

Believe it or not folks, the Boston Red Sox are less than a month away from beginning their Spring Training schedule. They will open things up on February 27th with a pair of college exhibition games before getting their first crack in the Grapefruit League the very next day.
I’m going to be starting a new weekly segment called “Countdown to Spring Training.” Each week, I will...
David Ortiz clarified his contract comments Wednesday.
Ortiz, who said Sunday that he’d consider playing for another organization if the Boston Red Sox don’t give him the contract extension he wants, told WEEI.com’s Rob Bradford on Wednesday that he only asked for a one-year extension to his current deal.
In other words, Ortiz, who already is under contract for 2014, wants...
Shane Victorino loves big market baseball.
Victorino, who spent seven-plus seasons in Philadelphia, grew accustomed to playing in front of passionate fans long before arriving in Boston. The Flyin’ Hawaiian, now entering his second season with the Red Sox, can’t help but be motivated by the intensity.
“I love it. There’s no better reason to show up to the ballpark every day...
by Mark Lawrence, Down-Under EditorSydney, Australia. Long time readers of my stuff here at FenwayNation - if there's any of you left - will know that I've long been a booster for David Americo Ortiz Arias a player deservedly admired and beloved by Red Sox Nation. It goes without saying that Papi's contribution to the team has been integral in securing three World Series...
(L to R: Erdahl, Royle, Malone, Chin)Word is that NESN is actively looking for a replacement for "re-assigned" Red Sox sideline reporter Jenny Dell. In our view, this city already has at least four substantive, talented women who could fill that role. Our suggestions are: Jamie Erdahl of NESN; Jen Royle of Boston Herald Radio; Kelly Malone of WBZ-TV/TV38; and Abby Chin...
The Red Sox are well-positioned to contend for another American League East crown in 2014. But if another World Series title is in the cards, certain chips will need to fall Boston’s way.
From good health to good fortune to bounce-back seasons from key players, everything seemingly went right for the Red Sox in 2013. With much of Boston’s core remaining intact this offseason...

We’re less than three weeks away from the start of spring training. Who’s jacked up?
Of course you are, especially if you’re a Boston Red Sox fan. The Red Sox haven’t been too busy this offseason, but they’re in good shape to contend in 2014. It should be another season-long battle in the American League East.
The Red Sox’ good standing doesn’t mean there aren’t questions...
Every other year at this time David Ortiz speaks out about his contract. And every other year, someone gets bent out of shape over it.
You know what, this time Ortiz is dead right.
He deserves another year added to his deal, which is what he seeks. Plus, he deserves a big raise from the $15 million he's to make in 2014.
Twenty million sounds about right to me.
The 2013 Red Sox led the majors in Runs, On Base Percentage, Slugging Percentage, wOBA, RC+. By virtually every offensive metric, from basic to advanced, the Sox fielded the best offense in baseball and it wasn’t that close. So why was it that they had only 2 players that ranked among the top 5 at [...]
The Boston Red Sox are eyeing a Scott Boras client not named Stephen Drew.

Dan Kurtz of MyKBO.net tweeted Tuesday that Yoon has received offers...
Sam GalanisContributing WriterFor something that didn’t even need to be discussed in the first place, the talk surrounding David Ortiz’s contract has been completely blown out of proportion.After saying that it would be “time to move on” from the Red Sox if he wasn’t offered a long-term deal, Papi told WEEI’s Rob Bradford Wednesday that he actually only asked for a one...
Eric D. Schabell Contributing Writer The name is Suk-Min Yoon.Ever heard of this young man?Well the Red Sox have been names as a team with interest.The question is how much interest the Red Sox actually have as the primary source of the ongoing interest for the Red Sox is that Scott Boras keeps mentioning the Red Sox having interest in his clients.Scott Boras indicated the Red Sox...
