Just putting this here:

The Red Sox have now won six in a row, including three on the road against Cleveland and Baltimore.
That’s Hall of Fame worthy analysis by the voice of Boston sports right there.
John Dennis is gone. It certainly appears that the longtime morning co-host will not be returning to the WEEI airwaves.
Working on getting details that actually advance my story from last week, but have been told John Dennis will not return to WEEI in any role

This meshes with what I had been told, which was that he flat-out quit.
While Dennis definitely had his flaws, he was infinitely a better host than Gary Tanguay, who seems to be the lined-up replacement. (Please no.)
The Patriots play their second preseason game tonight, against the Chicago Bears, whom they have scrapped with in joint practices this week.
The preseason broadcasts remain a bit of a disjointed mess. I like all the people involved on the telecasts, but they’re not in great roles. I appreciate Dan Roche for his positive outlook on sports – a refreshing alternative in a sea of negative pundits, but he’s not a play-by-play guy, or whatever facilitating role he is expected to perform on these broadcasts. Christian Fauria is not a great a analyst. He’d be better as the sideline guy where he can be be Tony Siragusa Jr. Matt Chatham would be better as the booth analyst.
I’m never sure when they’re tossing to the PFW guys, or what they’re expected to contribute to the telecasts.
