Lou Merloni, the pride of Framingham, MA, enjoyed a ten year major league baseball career that included a six year stint right here in Boston, playing for the Red Sox. In his first major league at bat, Merloni hit a three run home run off Jose Rosado at Fenway Park, on May 15, 1998. His career included stops with the San Diego Padres, Cleveland Indians, the LA Angels of Anaheim and the Oakland A's.
Merloni is best known for being one of the top utility players in the Sox organization, having the ability to play multiple positions and play them well. Nicknamed "Sweet Lou" by Red Sox fans, he graduated from Providence College in 1993 and still holds several single season records for the Friars now defunct baseball team.
Merloni joined WEEI in March 2008, appearing on "Big Show " as a co-host. Merloni has also worked in television as a Red Sox analyst on NESN and Comcast Sports Net New England. In March of 2011, Merloni and Mike Mutnansky were joined together to start the “Mut and Merloni” show from 10a-2p. That show's last day on WEEI was May 22, 2014.
Fauria, a 13-year NFL veteran, spent four years with the Patriots from 2002 to 2005, and helped New England win two Super Bowl rings at Super Bowls XXXVIII and XXXIX. More recently, Fauria has worked as a college football analyst for CBS, color commentator for Patriots preseason games locally on WBZ-TV, and host of a pre- and postgame show during the NFL regular season.
