Multiple sources are reporting that former Red Sox infielder (and Framingham native)Lou Merloni will not be the lead play-by-play man on the team's radio broadcasts. These same reports state that a person has already been chosen. Former radio play-by-play man Dave O'Brien is moving over to the NESN television booth to replace the departed Don Orsillo. Speculation points to several possible announcers with New England ties, such as: Dave Jageler, Andy Freed, Aaron Goldsmith, Dave Flemming, Dave Raymond, Gary Thorne (our choice) and Steve Berthiaume.
