That call was as good as anything Orsillo did during his tenure (though in fairness, Don didn't do any of the Red Sox play-by-play during the postseason, and that O'Brien call was from the ALCS in 2013).Yes, really -- that is an example of what O'Brien does very well, describing dramatic moments with a little extra vocal flare, but without going over the top.
I like O'Brien fine, and assume he'll grow more comfortable into the role -- and those of us who mostly watch games, and haven't regularly listened to O'Brien for years on the radio, will get more comfortable with him, too. And I do like Remy's focus this year and willingness to offer insights into game strategy. Whether that's because of new mandates from his NESN bosses, Remy seeing the writing on the wall, or because he's emerging from a couple years of a horrible personal situation -- whatever the motivation, we're all better for it. Still, the decision with Orsillo was just so unnecessary, and the manner it was done was unforgivable IMO.
