I’m still kinda confused why he was banished to AAA for so long?
Didnt make sense to me based on some of the bums on the big league team.
On the radio, they said that Cora said that Valdez spent a lot of time learning/getting used to throwing more fastballs and use the changeup off of that, instead of what he had been doing.

Was listening to the last couple of innings in the car. This team has something special going.

Ok, that makes sense and shows they had a plan/reason. He was too changeup reliant

“Now, the Red Sox crowd is very quiet,” Kay said. “Players that have played for the Red Sox — and I’ve spoken with them — they say the difference between a Red Sox crowd and a Yankee crowd is, the Yankee crowd at Yankee Stadium will get loud to try and spur the team on to do something. And the Red Sox crowd reacts to something good. And they’re being shut out right now, so it’s kind of a quiet situation at Fenway Park.
“That’s long been the scouting report on the Red Sox crowd — not a knock on them. They’re reactive, rather than being proactive.”

Bullshit, and I'm not being a homer. I've been to 2 Phillies-Sox games with Philly fans at Fenway who are my friends and they admitted this crowd is quite loud, like Philly fans. (Grew up in Mass. live in Philly area for a long time)
And of course games from 65-71, and many games from 1979 on up visiting etc..Caught many Boston Marathon morning games also.

The new Yankee stadium? Loud? With all those empty luxury seats?
I enjoyed going to the old Yankee Stadium, I have no desire really to go to the new one. Hell I went to Citi Field in 09 and I think that's better. The new Yankee Stadium is way too expensive. I used to go to Professor Thoms when in NYC from 08 on to watch Big Red Sox games but I heard that's closed. Are there any other good Boston Sports Bars now in NYC??

We miss the Remsillo banter.
Funny, I thought the Remsillo banter, charming at first, began to go too far; there was too much tangential shit, and not enough focus on the game. DOB is a smoother game caller than Orsillo, too (though I do like Orsillo a lot as well - NESN/Sox have been in good hands). DOB's call of the Ortiz ALDS grand slam was broadcasting brilliance ...

That ALDS was 8 years ago. On the radio, with another guy who does pbp, Castig. Their personalities meshed.

As the only pbp guy/traffic cop for loose guys like eck and Remy, he comes off as a moralizing dullard incapable of laughing at himself. I've never heard Remy poke fun at him for anything remotely personal, like orsillos travel bag filled with dental pliers and scented candles.
He deserves some credit for keeping the train running when he had 40 different analysts to work with in Remy's absence. But now that that's stabilized, his dullardity has reasserted itself.

I love your example and it has me missing that old Remsillo dynamic a bit! Hilarious (seriously) ... meanwhile I've never regarded DOB as moralizing ... interesting ...he has a great voice, a flare for the dramatic and calls a good game.

I don’t mind DOB. I don’t find him extremely fun to listen to, but that’s why remy and eck are there. His job is to keep focus on the game, and he does a good job of it. Although I hate when he says swifty

DO was maybe into S&M? San Diego would probably be a lot more forgiving. LOL
