    It's 10:30 and Mutt and Merloni have spent the entire first 30 minutes of their show today on…the Bruins big game tonight? Nope. The Celtics game tomorrow? No.

    Instead, it's literally been 30 minutes of IS IT OK FOR JASON VERITEK TO CATCH JOSH BECKETT?? WHAT ARE THE RAMIFICATIONS? THE IMPACT ON THE TEAM PSYCHE?

    This is some of the most contrived, cliched, auto-pilot sports talk I've ever heard.

    • tl;dr

      The Red Sox remain more popular in Boston than the Bruin or Celts.

      I think 'EEI screwed the pooch big time with this move. Merloni is decent, but needs a strong co-host. Muttnansky has nothing to offer. I never understood why he got the weekend gig, never mind this. Either Dale really ended up on someone's s**t list or Muttnansky is related to someone. I just don't get it. Mutt is basically Larry Johnson with a better voice. They should just cut their losses and bring back Dale. They have to pay him for another year anyway.

      • Eddie

        I have to wonder what they were thinking when they put Muttnansky on this show. I could see him being a flash boy, but not much more than that. He's never played, coached, written about, or announced any high level sports. I can listen to people more knowledgeable than him at the coffee shop. He must know somebody.

    Can you remind me what the Boston pundits thought of Frank McCourt's bid for the Red Sox getting short-circuited in favor of Henry/Lucchino?
