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
