It's very exciting for me personally because in this situation to be able to continue to do the Red Sox, which has been a dream of mine. ... I didn't expect it. I didn't anticipate that happening at all, so I'm kind of in a state of shock.Jerry Remy comments on his relationship with Don Orsillo:
For the last 15 years it's been an absolute pleasure to work with Don. ... He's been an outstanding partner for 15 years and I'm truly going to miss him — on a work-related side, and I'm going to miss him on a personal side because he's also become a very, very close friend of mine. ... He's terrific at what he does. He's been absolutely fabulous to work with. I love him.Gordon Edes writes that in an extremely disappointing season, the news about Orsillo "came without any warning whatsoever ... [and] felt like the worst loss of all".

[Orsillo] is expected to be replaced by Dave O'Brien, who currently is part of the Red Sox radio broadcast team on WEEI and also has a high-profile, multi-sport play-by-play role at ESPN. ...
Orsillo signed a contract in November 2011 that included an option for 2015. NESN showed no urgency in picking up the option last summer, making Orsillo wait out his fate. The deal was quietly picked up late in the season, without any fanfare. ...
According to industry sources, Orsillo was never a favorite of Joseph Maar, NESN's vice president of programming and production/executive producer who arrived at the network in July 2012. ...
Though the writing was on the wall for a while regarding his status, it was made clear over the weekend to Orsillo that he would not be returning. According to industry sources, consideration was given to removing him from broadcasts immediately. NESN was not planning on announcing his departure until January.
