Sacking our friend Don Orsillo won’t “re-energize” NESN broadcasts

Bill Foley (@Foles74)Contributing Writer In one scene in the movie The Town, you can hear Don Orsillo calling a Red Sox game in the background. It was a subtle, authentic way for the director, Ben Affleck, to let the movie watchers know that they were in Boston. For the past 15 years, nothing said “Boston” more than the kind, warming voice of Orsillo. We welcomed Orsillo into...

Red Sox Notes: Heath Hembree’s Mental Lapse Costs Boston In Loss To Mets

After entering in the seventh inning of a matchup with the New York Mets, Hembree forgot to keep tabs on baserunner David Murphy. Noticing this, Murphy took advantage, sprinting to second without a throw on Hembree’s first pitch. Michael...

Big Papi crushes Syndergaard pitch for 494th homer

Noah Syndergaard went 5 2/3 innings without allowing a run Sunday afternoon. That changed in a hurry when David Ortiz stepped to the plate.

He now sits all alone in 27th on the all-time home runs list and needs six over the...

Gut Reaction: Mets 5, Red Sox 4 (8/30/15)

Terry Collins didn't challenge double out of fear of HR

New York Mets manager Terry Collins decided against challenging David Ortiz’s pinch-hit, ninth-inning double Saturday. Why? Because giving up a double is better than giving up a home run. Collins told reporters Sunday in New York, via ESPN.com, that he was unsure whether Ortiz’s wall-ball two-bagger — which came during a 3-1 win for the Boston Red Sox — actually cleared...

Gut Reation: Red Sox 3, Mets 1 (8/29/15)

To add a little salt on the wound...
