Remy on D&C: Give Ellsbury another chance

NESN Red Sox analyst Jerry Remy made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Wednesday morning and talked about the team overview as the Sox head into the final two weeks of the season.

 

"It's interesting, when we started this whole [season], we were taking about pitching and defense," Remy said. "They're going to finish probably in the middle of the pack in pitching, middle of the pack in defense, and they're going to be near the top in offense. It's been a crazy year, and you can't take away from all the injuries. It's an excuse, but it's a fact. Without [Dustin] Pedroia in there, without [Kevin] Youkilis in there, without [Jacoby] Ellsbury in there, it's a totally different team."

 

Remy said he expects Ellsbury will be back in center field next season, and he thinks people should be careful about questioning his toughness. "I never do that," Remy said. "I've been hurt...

Hoge on D&C: Pats offense 'concerning'

ESPN NFL analyst Merril Hoge joined the Dennis & Callahan show Wednesday morning to talk about the top stories around the league. Hoge said Patriots coach Bill Belichick deserve credit for getting what he has out of the defense with only one "difference-maker" in Vince Wilfork. "What he's doing with these young guys for the most part is excellent coaching," Hoge said. "Does it mean they're a great defense? No. But you can see them getting better every week."

 

Hoge was not as impressed with the Patriots offense. "Offensively, it's a little concerning," he said. "You've got three dimensions, I think, with [Tom] Brady, [Wes] Welker and [Randy] Moss. But they don't use a second phase to their offense and their running game as consistent as I feel if they did, it would make Brady even better — which he used to do early in Brady's career."

 

Hoge supported the...

Mashup: Manuel lashes out at Torre

After learning that outgoing Dodgers manager Joe Torre publicly admitted to having interest in the Mets managerial job that undoubtedly will become open after this season, current Mets manager Jerry Manuel criticized Torre and questioned his integrity. It doesn't help Manuel that the underachieving Mets were eliminated from playoff contention on the same day he blasted the apologetic Torre.

 

Meanwhile, even in death, George Steinbrenner is controversial. His newly unveiled plaque at Yankee Stadium's Monument Park is substantially larger than those around it. A number of people have started to complain about that Steinbrenner's tribute should not dwarf those for Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle and other Yankees legends.
