NESN Pulls Jenny Dell Off Sox Sideline Duties

Although it's been expected for a while, NESN has officially removed the popular Jenny Dell from her duties as sideline reporter on Red Sox broadcasts. Dell has publicly acknowledged a romantic relationship with Red Sox third baseman Will Middlebrooks—which clearly led to the re-assignment. According to a NESN spokesperson, Dell is now "anchoring NESN Sports Today and handling other assignments for NESN". Dell replaced the also-popular Heidi Watney. Luckily, NESN already has a talented replacement on staff in Jamie Erdhal—who has handled the Bruins sideline gig extremely well this year. Erdhal subbed for Dell a fair amount last year on Red Sox broadcasts and was both substantive and entertaining. She should get the job.
