Ever since Don Orsillo was let go before the beginning of last year, something has been missing from Red Sox broadcasts. Dave O’Brien is a good announcer and does a serviceable job, but the back and forth between Don and Jerry Remy or Don and Dennis Eckersley was an event in itself. He was also a fantastic play by play announcer who had a knack for showing the perfect amount of emotion in big moments, something that every hometown play by play guy should be able to bring out from time to time. While we won’t get Don and Jerry or Don and Eck, at least we’ll get Don in some capacity for what is hopefully a great game. Houston is the best team in baseball right now and the Red Sox are finally starting to get hot, so maybe Don will get to call a couple Red Sox home runs for old times sake.
