Get well, RemDawg

The magic broadcast team of Jerry Remy and Don Orsillo is why I watch baseball. They get silly together, which I adore, without getting stupid. Remy is the perfect color commentator for me, explaining what's going on without obsessing over the perfectly obvious, without making me want to ice-pick my own ears to escape the inanity (Joe Morgan, Tim McCarver), and without explaining simple plays with football analogies (ESPN guy I'm glad to forget).

Most of the fill-ins have been acceptable or at least entertainingly bizarre, and Eckersley's pitcher-wonkishness is working for me, but it's just not the same.

Get well, RemDawg. We'll wait for you.
