NESN Names More Substitutes For Jerry Remy

NESN announced today that Dennis Eckersley would continue pairing up with Don Orsillo on TV broadcasts of Red Sox games through Thursday. Then, Friday through Monday, Orsillo will be joined by Jon Rish—who quit WEEI last April before that radio station experienced its major shake-ups (that persist to this day). Also on Friday, Hall of Fame baseball writer Peter Gammons will be a third person in the NESN booth. It's still unclear when Red Sox icon Jerry Remy will return—out since mid-August after his son Jared was charged with murder.
