Rick Dempsey, 1983 Donruss #329

Tough loss for the O's tonight, but two out of three ain't bad. Going back to last night's 5-4 win, Rick Dempsey made his debut as a color analyst for NESN, the Red Sox regional TV network.

No, Dipper hasn't betrayed us. Regular NESN color man Jerry Remy was incapacitated with the flu, so Rick pinch-hit for the enemy. I almost wish that I could have listened. From what I read on Camden Chat from those with MLB.TV access, he was in rare form. When Luke Scott had the nerve to be pleased with himself for hitting a monster home run off of Josh Beckett, the Boston pitcher could be seen on camera demanding that the home plate umpire give him the f-ing ball. Dempsey suggested that Beckett was actually saying that he wanted "a fuzzy ball". Take a bow, Rick.
