Gary Striewski Is New NESN Sideline Reporter

UPDATE: Decision may not be final
To badly paraphrase the late Senator Lloyd Bentsen, "I knew Jenny Dell. Jenny Dell was a friend of mine. Gary Striewski, you're no Jenny Dell." NESN has played the Eric Fried card and hired a male sideline reporter for the first time since 2005 to replace the estimable Jenny Dell. Oh, the humanity! This Striewski guy seems substantive and all, but come on, NESN. Are you kidding? What in the Heidi Watney are you thinking of? Elle Duncan and Sarah Davis—both of whom worked several spring training games—would have been more than adequate. But Gary? Bad NESN, no biscuit!
