Don Orsillo And Jerry Remy Reunited In Houston
Don Orsillo and Jerry Remy went together like peanut butter and jelly, they made boring Boston Red Sox baseball games interesting. Two years ago NESN decided to move away from Orisillo in favor of Dave O’Brien whose contract was up over at WEEI.
NESN executives grossly underestimated the fanbases love for the duo with the network continuing to not get what it’s viewers want from their broadcasts.
The awkwardness of the broadcasts the last two years paired with O’Brien still calling games like he is on the radio have made many fans wish Orsillo was back in their homes. This past weekend we all got a little taste of it.
This weekend, Don Orsillo and Jerry Remy reunited in Houston, with Orsillo on the call for Red Sox-Astros Saturday on Fox.

In an interview with WEEI’s Rob Bradford, Orsillo talked about how nice it was to see the Red Sox again.
“It is good to see all of these guys –– Mookie [Betts>, Jackie Bradley Jr. It’s great to see these guys. They’re friends of mine who I’ve had for years,” he said. “I did a lot of hugging. It was good to be hugged –– it was good to see those guys. Any time the Red Sox are on, which is usually before our games, I’ll always pay attention and know what’s going on here, because it’s always an event. That’s for sure.”
