O'Brien talks new role at NESN, Castiglione

CHICAGO — With the announcement that he would be joining Jerry Remy in the NESN broadcast booth for the 2016 season — leaving the Red Sox Radio broadcast — Dave O’Brien revealed the most difficult part of his decision to move back to television.

It was parting ways with his radio partner, Joe Castiglione.

“Well, he’s the best guy I know. He’s the best guy you know,” O’Brien said following the Red Sox’ 5-4 loss to the White Sox Tuesday night. “We know that he’s a great announcer and he’s a better human being, which I don’t say about everything. I wouldn’t say that about me, but I’ll say it about Joe Castiglione because he’s a Hall of Famer in every sense. It’s been the single most...

Remy discusses Orsillo moving on

CHICAGO — Following the Red Sox‘ 5-4 loss to the White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field, Jerry Remy took a few minutes to reflect on the news that his longtime NESN Red Sox broadcast partner, Don Orsillo, would not be brought back for the 2016 season.

“For the last 15 years it’s been an absolute pleasure to work with Don,” an emotional Remy told a small group of reporters immediately after the broadcast. “I can remember him sitting in the booth when the job became available. He was asking me if there was any chance he could probably get it. I said a few things to a few people and he did get it. He’s been an outstanding partner for 15 years and I’m truly going to miss him...

Ramirez struggles as Sox blow lead in loss
By: DJ Bean

Wade Miley allowed just two earned runs over six innings Tuesday night against the White Sox.

Unfortunately, Wade Miley threw 6 2/3 innings on Tuesday.

The White Sox got to Miley for three runs in the bottom of the seventh, erasing Boston’€™s two-run lead and jumping ahead on a double from Trayce Thompson that was largely due to Hanley Ramirez‘€™ latest adventure in left field. Thompson’€™s double ended Miley’€™s night and gave him the loss in a 5-4 victory for the White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field.

Ramirez failed to field the line drive into left field, missing the ball and letting it bounce to...
