Play-by-play by play-by-play, Orsillo is game

As a longtime fan of the Boston Red Sox, I’m writing regarding the absence of Jerry Remy from NESN’s broadcasts. This is not about Remy or his health problems. My sympathy and support are with him. This is about his partner in the booth, Don Orsillo.

Over the last few years, Orsillo has had to deal with an array of substitutes and personalities.


He has faced this challenge with grace, patience, and humor.

Of all my favorites in the Red Sox organization — and there are many — Orsillo is at the top of my list.
