The rumors of Jerry Remy's displacement by another Massachusetts native (Ron Darling)have been dashed. NESN announced yesterday that Remy would return to the TV broadcast booth in 2016—albeit sharing color duties with Dennis Eckersley and Steve Lyons. In fact, on some games, new play-by-play man Dave O'Brien will work with two others from among the Remy, Eckersley and Lyons grouping. The Nation would have been ready to erupt if NESN had axed Remy—especially after the uproar over the dismissal of his long-time booth-mate Don Orsillo. Remy will be returning for his 29th year covering the Red Sox.
