Unceremoniously dumped by NESN last season as the play-by-play announcer for Red Sox games, Don Orsillo has landed on his feet. Orsillo’s new employer, Fox Sports San Diego, tweeted a picture of Orsillo, who’ll be calling Padres games this season, flanked by his colleagues Michelle Margaux and Julie Alexandria. “The new faces you’ll be seeing this season for #Padres on FSSD,” reads the tweet. The grinning Orsillo looks pleased with his new gig.
