NESN Sending Jenny Dell Down to Triple A

BOSTON – Two years ago the Boston Red Sox set out to do the impossible: replace Heidi Watney.

In midst of all this, the actual team was also in the process of a major overhaul, replacing the championship team of 2007. Pap shipped down to Phili, Manny continued being Manny in LA, Ortiz threatened to walk to New York, and it seemed as though the decade of dominance was coming to an end.

That winter Heidi was also on her way out after receiving an offer to join the MLB Network team: a true tragedy that tore through the hearts of many Sox fans.

Meanwhile, NESN took the same route. They replaced the lovable Watney, with a big name with big game tits: Jenny Dell.

Jenny wowed Sox fans right off the bat with her engulfing smile and array of borderline “too sexy for camera” summer dresses. But much like the Red Sox found out the hard way that games aren’t won on paper, NESN found out that ratings aren’t won over with Smoke Shows.

As the Red Sox limped into the 2012 season, Crawford hopped back on the DL, Gonzalez appeared to not give a fuck, and Lackey continued his recovery from Tommy-John Surgery. The biggest offseason in Red Sox history quickly turned into a gigantic failure led by Bobby Valentine. So that summer the Red Sox blew up the team and cut ties with Crawford, Beckett, and Gonzalez, three of the most hated names on the Red Sox roster.

It appears as though the same type of overhaul may be going on at NESN. Ratings have dropped off dramatically, the sell-out streak is over, and the weight of all this burden is being put on Jenny’s shoulders. Jenny’s frustration burst through Sunday, much like Papi bursting into a Tito press conference to complain about an RBI, when she was caught on camera telling off a poor, bewildered fan who cut in front of her during a mid-inning interview.

So last night NESN opted for a new, fresh face in favor of Jenny: Jamie Erdahl.

As we all learned last year, big, “sexy” names don’t win ball games. Sometimes you need a hard working gal who just loves to play the game. The Sox found that in Napoli, Middlebrooks, and Nava, and now maybe NESN is attempting to find that same chemistry in Jamie. She may not have the tits, she may not have the smile, but maybe, just maybe she’ll have the heart. And right now that’s what NESN truly needs.

Sorry Jenny, but I’m more of a blonde guy anyways. #TeamJamie.

  1. I’m not a big fan of Jenny. She doesn’t come off as genuinely a sports fan. She seems to be a fan of herself first and then the game is an afterthought which is only a platform for her to be on camera.
    So far I like Jamie’s reserved yet inviting personality and she is easy to listen to whereas Jenny’s voice gets annoying very quick and I dread when I have to hear her speak. She is a pretty girl but that only goes so far. NESN can afford the complete package.

  2. I liked Jenny more than Heidi but less than Tina. The guy in the stands was clueless and deesrved a beating. If the NESN PR crew has real balls, maybe they should hire a guy.

      • I grew up in CT and I’ve seen too many “Jenny Dell” types. She tries too hard to be sexy because she’s average looking and is about as sweet as a grapefruit.
        Jamie is just an all around athletic girl with an easy going “approachable” personality,
        Jamie is easy to listen to as well as to look at.
        I guarantee you don’t want to be around when Jenny is not happy…..she is a “forced” people person. She’s not someone I would want to have a beer with…

  3. I beg to differ. Jenny is beautiful, sexy and confident. I am tired of all the blondes and Jenny is a refreshing change.

  4. I much prefer to watch and listen to Jamie Erdahl than to Jenny Dell. She is much more outgoing, beautiful and baseball-sports-oriented than Jenny. Her interviews are interesting, knowledgeable and excellent. I hope she is on for every Red Sox game. Although I greatly miss Heidi Watney, I am very pleased with Jamie.

  5. I for one enjoyed Jenny Dell, and good for her speaking to that clueless fan. the mother and son being interviewed had their shot at fame spoiled by the fan.

  6. I am disappointed that Jenny is no longer part of the Broadcast. Jenny reported with integrity. Heidi lacked… Heidi initially left NESN for the LA Lakers. Bring Back Hazel Mae.

  7. Do you really think no one would tune in if they didn’t display these screechy voiced women? The players look so uncomfortable when they are interviewed by them with their orchestrated questions.

  8. She was great at banging out those sox tweets, but man, her voice… Hot chicks, better seen, not heard…

  9. Between Heidi, Jenny and Jamie, we’ve been blessed (and so has NESN) with savvy women providing color commentary for the Sox and fans. Jenny grew on us and earned our support, bring her back.

  10. I’d rather listen to Jenny Dell than listen to that will d bag Jerry Remy. Get ride of him now. He acts like a horses behind with little in sight. He’s only concerned with promoting his businesses and how many hot dogs he gives away. You know he is not paying for the dogs. With all the money he has made off the Sox’s maybe he can give a big. Check to the Jimmy Fund.

  11. This is an aweful article. Sexist to the extreme. You may not like Jenny as an interviewer, but referring to her physical attributes in the way you did was disgusting and Neanderthal.

  12. Jamie is a much better choice than Jenny Dell. She is more athletically orientated and offers hers own opinions on game situations. She will do well.

  13. I’ll take Jamie, I didn’t know how she would be off the Sportsdesk but she won me over when she did the Ultimate Red Sox Show. She’s got an approachable quality like Heidi has while neither is a beautiful as Heidi let’s be honest, women like her don’t come around every day.

  14. I have been surfing online more than three hours today, but I by no means found any interesting article like yours.
    It is lovely worth sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers
    made good content as you probably did, the net
    will be a lot more helpful than ever before.
