    I have to adjust the audio treble and midrange down, DOB's voice literally gives me a headache. Or I just mute it. Or switch over to Spanish.

    I miss Ned Martin.

    Thanks for the warning. He's absolutely the worst announcer the Sox ever had.

    Holy hot take Batman! I love the juxtaposition of this and a few posts up talking about DOB's whistle and people muting the tv.

    I personally loved when Don called sox games. His enjoyment with Remy made me enjoy the entire broadcast more.

    Kinda makes me hope there will be a Remy appearance somehow, maybe just a wave from off-screen. I hope he's doing as ok as he can be doing.

    Since it's a national broadcast, I doubt Remy will even come up. But as it is the final weekend of the season, maybe Remy will show up on a NESN telecast to say hi.

    It'd probably be asking too much of the NESN crew to have DO appear with him. Or in any capacity at all.

    Yeah, I know. Still, a girl can hope for some freaking decency in this world, can't she? I have to think Remy is going to be really happy to see Don, assuming he (Rem) can get there. It'd be nice to acknowledge that when the guy is going though another really tough time.

    I went down the rabbit hole and this still gives me feels. What a genuine guy.



    That said, it still doesn't top the pizza throw or boob grab incident. I'm not sure those will ever be touched.

    Johnny Gomes would like you to hold his beer for a second.

    That’s a great clip, thanks for sharing it. He really was a perfect match for the Sox.

    Remy was in Worcester for the WooSox welcome party a week or two ago along with Pedro and a bunch of old timers. From the footage he looked better than I would have expected though clearly tired.

    Yes! Thanks! I knew I saw that he was at some event, but could not remember which one, and then wondered if I was just making it up in my head. Maybe he'll make it to the Fens for the last of the regular season.

    I miss Don. Did we ever get him, Remy and Eck in the booth for a full game? That would have been a dream team.

    Still a dumb move. Seems like it's always been a majority that loved his work in the booth.

    Remy is scheduled to visit the booth for an inning on Wednesday.
