Don Orsillo and Jerry Remy’s greatest hits

Don Orsillo and Jerry Remy’s greatest hits

So many memories. With Don Orsillo calling tonight’s game against the Houston Astros, let’s look back on his years with Jerry Remy on NESN covering the Red Sox. The two friends shared so many moments with Red Sox Nation during their time together. In no particular order, some of the greats: June 14, 2014: Tom Hallion's strike three gesture to the Cleveland Indians Yan Gomes sends the booth into hysterics. It’s a good motion. June 3, 2015: Remy gives Orsillo a new lamp during a game against the Minnesota Twins. August 1, 2015: A fan can’t figure out how to work his poncho. He...

MLB “Player’s Weekend” will let players go by their nicknames, wear crazy shoes

MLB “Player’s Weekend” will let players go by their nicknames, wear crazy shoes

Baseball asks itself “why so serious?” Let the Laser Show be the Laser Show! Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports reported on Wednesday that Major League Baseball and the MLB Players Association will allow and encourage the use of nicknames on the back of jerseys and a unleash new rainbow of colored equipment on the field. One of the talking points about baseball is that it’s a sport with an aging audience. Sometimes the game feels like it’s not willing to embrace and extend when player culture is meshing well with pop culture, memes, or society. But other times they dive in out of...

Chris Sale, David Price, and Steven Wright take up comedy, ice cream

Chris Sale, David Price, and Steven Wright take up comedy, ice cream

In a new ad, a trio of Red Sox starters show off their comedic chops and confuse a few kids. Generations of baseball fans, and everyone else really, have grown up knowing the joy of realizing that Who is a person thanks to the Abbot and Costello comedy routine “Who’s on First?” The Red Sox and Bank of America thought they could pay homage to one of the greatest baseball jokes of all time in an ad that would help introduce fans to the new Sox ace, Chris Sale. With the help of David Price and Steven Wright, Sale tries to hand out ice cream and ends up having a bit of a hard time,...

Watch Joe Kelly hit 104 miles per hour

Watch Joe Kelly hit 104 miles per hour

The converted starter may have found a home in the bullpen. Joe Kelly was never remarkable with the St. Louis Cardinals. He was a solid young pitcher who wasn’t as valuable to the team as Michael Wacha, Trevor Rosenthal, and Jaime Garcia at the time of the John Lackey trade. According to eFastball, Kelly’s pitch last night, reported at 103 MPH, would slot in at somewhere after the fourth fastest pitch ever thrown (remember Joel Zumaya?) in Major League Baseball, depending on where the decimal point falls. The NESN feed clocked Kelly’s offering to Aaron Judge at 104 MPH while the...

Craig Kimbrel named American League reliever of the month for May

The closer is setting things right in his second year in Boston. Boston fans may be hard to win over, especially when the first impression isn’t the best, but Craig Kimbrel is doing everything he can to build a new legacy with the Red Sox. Most recently, earning American League Reliever of the Month honors for May. After a disappointing 2016 season the Kimbrel of legend who dominated the National League is back and shutting down batter after batter. After an April where the closer gave up just two earned runs, Kimbrel kicked it up a notch: 12 appearances, 41 batters faced, 25 (!!)...

Mookie Betts leads Red Sox in All-Star voting but Andrew Benintendi is in the picture too!

Mookie Betts leads Red Sox in All-Star voting but Andrew Benintendi is in the picture too!

Mookie is looking to appear in two All-Star Games in a row while the rookie sensation is trying for his first. The first voting update for the 2017 All-Star Game is out and Mookie Betts is in third place among American League outfielders. Trailing only reigning MVP Mike Trout, who topped Betts in the voting last fall but will likely be on the disabled list until after the game is played, and Yankee slugger Aaron Judge, 2017 is shaping up to be the right fielder’s second time at the midsummer classic. On his way to another shot at the AL MVP, too, perhaps? Betts isn’t the only member of...

Fenway Park ranked 13th by TripAdvisor among all US landmarks

Baseball is great and it’s better in Boston! Fenway isn’t “America’s Most Beloved Ballpark” for nothing. The 115-year-old baseball shrine isn’t just a stadium or an old, historic building but a sight to be seen. In the most recent TripAdvisor ranking of the top 25 landmarks in the United States our baseball haven placed 13th.

Manny still being Manny, crushing home runs in Japan

Manny still being Manny, crushing home runs in Japan

The guy just loves baseball. He’s about to turn 45 but you wouldn’t know that by watching his sweet swing. Manny Ramirez is still playing baseball professionally in Japan and loving every minute of it. Signed for the 2017 season with the Kochi Island Fighting Dogs, Ramirez has yet to fully retire and put an end to his career - 19 seasons in the majors with the Cleveland Indians, Boston Red Sox, Los Angeles Dodgers, Chicago White Sox, and Tampa Bay Rays. It’s hard to believe that Manny last played for Boston in 2008. The independent league may not be the highest level of competition...

Game of Thrones night, not winter, coming to Fenway Park this summer

Game of Thrones night, not winter, coming to Fenway Park this summer

The mad ace Pedro Martinez? If you’re like a lot of people these days you’ve marked July 16th on your calendar for the return of Game of Thrones. With just two seasons left fans are at a fever pitch wondering how the story will end. The Red Sox feel your pain. On July 18th, it’s time to visit Westeros Fenway. Courtesy of MLB/Boston Red Sox Game of Thrones night wouldn’t be complete without an opponent from a frozen wasteland: the Toronto Blue Jays! With their Canadian quirks selling milk in a bag and eating doughnuts (actually Tim Horton’s is just as awesome...

David Ortiz interviews Anthony Rizzo about World Series Game 7

David Ortiz interviews Anthony Rizzo about World Series Game 7

Big Papi is keeping busy in retirement! Who better to swap stories with? David Ortiz may not be the DH any more but he’s not going away. Papi sat down with Anthony Rizzo for The Players’ Tribune to talk about the Cubs and World Series Game 7. Who better to talk about breaking a curse and the nervousness that would entail than Ortiz? After all, he was a big part of three Red Sox World Series championships and arguably the most intense ALCS ever. For old times sake, this is how you handle pressure. The lesson is Clutch 101, the instructor’s Big Papi. Who should Ortiz interview next?...

David Ortiz doing a Boston accent is as wonderful as you’d expect

David Ortiz doing a Boston accent is as wonderful as you’d expect

Big Papi isn’t playing baseball again but his acting career is heating up! David Ortiz is ready to move from Big Papi to the big screen in a new career as an actor! He’s actually just raising money for the David Ortiz Children’s Fund but someone will get to experience #34 being retired in style! In the meantime we get to enjoy David Ortiz doing his best impersonation of Jimmy Fallon, Matt Damon, and many more of Hollywood’s finest. It’s a fine example of his versatility and range. As a DH, we never got to see Ortiz’s range at work. He wrote a book and spoke at a couple...
