7 thoughts on “CSNNE Announces Red Sox Postseason Coverage Plans

  1. Why does 98.5 call Tony’s 6 pm show “The Baseball Reporters” when it’s only ever Tony by himself? Is it plural for his massive ego?


    1. He used to interview more guys (like McAdam, and some Globe writers), but I think the title is hearkening a bit to ESPN’s “The Sports Reporters”. The plural is a bit of an illusion, but since Tony isn’t a reporter any more, the entire name is pretty inaccurate.


  2. Having Mazz on CSNNE means I won’t even consider watching it. That guy makes me puke whenever he talks about sucks, crap, and who have they beaten. Why is it that TV can’t figure people don’t want negative, loud, contranian analysts. I don’t want Fred Smerlas butt kissers, but all viewers want are people who call it the way it is, and Mazz is totally incapable of doing that and has to play his TV heel annoying character and to quote Jay Sherman from the old show the Critic “He stinks”
