NESN Faces Two Major Decisions On Talent

As pointed out by Ken Fang of the must-read, New England Sports Network (NESN) has two critical decisions to make—and it needs to make them quickly. With just eleven days until the Equipment Truck rolls out of Fenway for jetBlue park, there is still no decision on the fate of either Jerry Remy or Jenny Dell. NESN committed to making a decision on Remy before the start of the 2014 season—which is just about upon us. The beloved RemDawg took off most of 2013 after his son Jared was charged with the alleged murder of his girlfriend. After Will Middlebrooks and Dell made their live-in partnership public, there were calls to pull Dell off the Red Sox sideline reporter gig. There has been no word from NESN on this score—although they have a more than adequate back-up in Jamie Erdahl. Stay tuned, sports fans!
