Seems the Sox and NESN asked Orsillo to video a remembrance for the Remy memorial, then uninvited him for some reason. Here is what he would have said about his longtime broadcast partner and friend.

The announcer has no interest in a one-on-one with the pitcher.

Joy of Sox found the joy of watching a Sox game drain away last night and not just because of what happened on the field: NESN added a sidebar to the screen that featured not just game info but regular old news as well, making their telecast look like a Web site from 2003. Read more.

Don Orsillo gets standing ovation

Josh Jacobs was among the thousands who gave Don Orsillo a standing ovation at the last Red Sox game at Fenway he will likely ever announce, given the grade of cement that makes up the heads of NESN executives.

Because? Yes, because, the Herald reports. That's it? Well, O'Brien is "well known for bringing out the nuances of baseball strategy, sharing insights about players." Wait, isn't that what Remy's supposed to do?

An online petition to NESN to bring Don Orsillo back to announce Sox games next year had more than 20,000 backers as of 5:10 p.m.

Baseball won't be the same without him.

The Entire "Here Comes The Pizza" Affair

Dennis and Callahan report. We'll always have the Pizza Toss.

You can date a Red Sox player, or you can stand on the sidelines during games, but not both.

Remy, of course, you know about. The Globe reports sideliner Dell, though, won't be talking over on-field action anymore. NESN, of course, won't say if that's because her boyfriend is Will Middlebrooks.

Bostonians tuning into NESN to watch the tribute in Baltimore to Johnny Pesky and, oh, yeah, a ballgame, instead got a test pattern tonight, followed by some Rolling Stones, followed by a blank screen.

UPDATE: The signal came back on just in time to hear Jerry Remy say "Buenas noches, amigos!" and watch Mr. Text Message get himself out.

Joy of Sox is no longer getting much joy from Sox games - and not just because of what's going on on the field:

NESN gives us worthless "tours" of concrete hallways in other stadiums and asinine non-baseball segments. Worse than that, the network often fails to show the action on the field.

NESN announced today that Wakefield will join Tom Caron and Jim Rice for pre-game analysis starting tomorrow night.
