Hideo Nomo- Good But Not Great Part 2

Nomo returned to the Dodgers in 2002, and had two of the best seasons of his career, with a 32-18 mark, a 3.20 ERA, and WHIPs averaging 1.283. But after undergoing shoulder surgery in October 2003, his slash plummeted to 4-11/8.25/1.750.

Don Orsillo Salutes Red Sox Nation, then Red Sox Players Salute Don

I remember Don Orsillo’s first game as permanent Red Sox commentator for NESN. It was April 4, 2001, and Hideo Nomo threw a no-hitter. I recall cramming one of those chunky VHS tapes into the recorder to capture the final outs, and despite that ****** tape recording (the height of technology 14 years ago), Don’s voice rings with the charming enthusiasm that would come to define...

Don Orsillo’s First Red Sox Game Was Pretty Memorable

Before the Sox started winning World Series, we fans clung tenaciously to what meager triumphs we were afforded: Pedro kicking Yankee arse in one game of the 1999 ALCS, a vitamin B-fueled Clemens striking out 20 Mariners, Nomar being better than Jeter (hey, we chanted it; it must have been true), the occasional weekend that Mo Vaughn wasn’t caught with a car full of strippers...
