Dennis Eckersley is leaving the Red Sox sales space quickly. He seemingly gained’t be watching many Pirates video games as an off-the-cuff fan.
The Hall of Fame reliever, 67, torched the Pirates’ “pathetic” roster during Boston’s 5-3 win on Tuesday evening.
“You talk about a no-name lineup. There’s no team like this,” Eckersley mentioned. “This is a hodgepodge of nothingness. It’s ridiculous. It really is.”
Eckersley and his broadcast associate, Dave O’Brien, in contrast the Pirates’ rebuild negatively to the one the Royals are executing.
“It’s ridiculous. It really is. Pathetic,” Eckersley mentioned with the Red Sox already up 5-0 within the second inning.
The Pirates are 45-71 this season and 194-306 mixed over the previous three-plus seasons.
Luckily for the legendary A’s nearer, it will seemingly be the final collection he’s pressured to look at the Pirates play. Eckersley told the Boston Globe that he will likely be leaving the NESN sales space after the season.
“Having grandkids in the Bay Area and visiting them in the offseason, that pushed me along,” Eckersley mentioned. “I just knew, you need to go and be with the kids. Those formative years, you need to be there.”
