NESN Red Sox analyst Jerry Remy joined the Dennis & Callahan show on Wednesday morning for his weekly discussion about the Red Sox. He talked about Boston's recent success, interleague play, and Manny Ramirez' return to Fenway Park this weekend as a member of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
"I think he's going to get booed," Remy said of Ramirez. "He quit on them, and it's too bad. I thought a lot about that, and you think of how much people loved Manny when he was here, but the way it ended was not pretty, and I think fans remember that."
Remy also touched on the Celtics' blowout loss in Game 6 and what their mindset might be heading into Game 7.
"You feel bad you couldn't close things out, obviously, but the fact is you know you have one more game to play and you gear up for that," Remy said. "It reminds me of the year the Red...

LOS ANGELES -- Following a 22-point loss in a potential championship-clinching game, the Celtics reacted with embarrassment after Tuesday's Game 6 defeat to the Lakers at Staples Center.
"We got our ass kicked, point-blank, simple," Glen Davis said. "They came out there and hit us hard. They beat us mentally, physically."
That was particularly evident on the glass, where the Celtics were outrebounded 30-13 in the first half and fell behind 71-51 at halftime. Others pointed the energy that was lost when their starting center Kendrick Perkins went down with what NBA officials are calling a sprained right knee.
"We have no choice," Kevin Garnett said of the change in approach for Game 7 Thursday. "We come out [in Game 7] with the energy we had tonight, we'll get blown out, embarrassed."

With Manny Ramirez making his return to Fenway Park Friday when the Dodgers roll into town, many are wondering how both the fans and his former teammates will treat him. David Ortiz, perceived to be one of Ramirez' closest friends in the world, has set the record straight that though the teammates enjoyed each other while both members of the Red Sox, the two have barely had any communication since July 31, 2008.
"Since Manny was traded, to tell you the truth, if I had talked to Manny four times, that’s a lot," Ortiz explained. "That’s him, though. I’ll bet that when he sees me he’s going to be jumping all over me, this and that, and wanting to do things, but that’s him, though, and I understand that. People believe that me and Manny were really together. It was so hard for me to reach out to Manny when we were playing together. Manny would call you and tell you, 'I’ll meet you in a...
LOS ANGELES -- Lakers coach Phil Jackson has won 10 titles as a coach, and coached teams that have appeared in 11 finals, but he has never coached a team in Game 7 of the finals. "It's really a high-tension situation," Jackson said. "Players have come down to putting a lot on the line at this particular point. A lot of times it's not about coaching at that point."
