Although most of my attention was focused on the Angels-Rangers game, I did check into the Red Sox-Indians to hear Don Orsillo and Jerry Remy broadcast together for the last time.
After Mookie Betts grounded out for the final out of the game (the Sox lost 3-1), the Red Sox came out of the dugout en masse to salute Orsillo who replied by putting his hand over his heart. He signed off by saying, "Don Orsillo rounding third and heading home." Meanwhile, RemDawg was too choked up to speak.
I don't understand why the Red Sox saw fit to break up RemDawg and Orsillo. Yes, the ratings were down. That's because the team sucked for most of the year. That's not the announcing team's fault. If anything, they made things bearable. They focused on the game, but gave us some laughs and put some smiles on our faces. What's wrong with that?
