Eckersley To Stick Around at NESN for Awhile

The very busy Jessica Heslam also has the news that Dennis Eckersley and NESN have agreed to a multi-year contract extension.

This is great news for viewers of the NESN pre and post game shows, as Eckersely is easily the most insightful and entertaining analyst in their rotation.

Eckersley also received one of the highest Approval Ratings from the BSMW voting earlier this year, with a whopping 96% approval.

Eckersley, who went national for the MLB postseason on TBS, has gotten attention for his unique vocabulary. During the playoffs, TBS provided this “Ecktionary“:

Cheese = Fastball

Salad = Bad Pitch

Paint = Good Control

Johnson = Home Run

Moss = Hair

Boiling = Fat

Iron = Money

Filet = Ugly Person

Random Quote

Could that Brady/Patriots window, just like the Celtics, be closed for good?

The colossal second-coming of Joe Montana, once a perfect 10-0 and then 14-2 in the postseason, needed a Tim Tebow tumble to reality and a choke for the ages by Baltimore’s Lee Evans and Billy Cundiff — just to pick up a couple playoff wins.
