While the snow still flies, the Red Sox will begin the 2016 regular season this afternoon with new ace David Price taking the mound in Cleveland. (4:10 PM, NESN, WEEI)
There will also be new faces and voices on the team’s television and radio networks.
Dave O’Brien moves over to NESN, replacing Don Orsillo. A few recent articles on O’Brien coming from Red Sox radio to TV:

It also appears that the Red Sox and WEEI are nearing an agreement to keep the rights right where they are for a few more years:

I don’t think your poll question is a fair question for either Dave or Don. Both are tremendous announcers and talents. Dave’s voice is extraordinary and Don was the “Natalie Jacabson” of NESN. We are/were blessed to have both for so long. Good Luck to both of them!
Dave is an upgrade over Don O…the problem is the wrong guy got replaced. It is that enabling father of a wife beater that needs to go…buenas nachos everyone…what a f&cking fraud. By the way…listened to the radio broadcast some today and it was good. So far Tim Neverett is a fine replacement. I still won’t watch the TV broadcast until NESN does the right thing and dump that piece of crap Remy.

Neverett was fine. Kind of has the generic radio man voice but plays things pretty straight (imagine if Meterperell had gotten the job he’s long coveted?)>
