Orsillo part of TBS playoff broadcast team

For those of you looking for your Don Orsillo fix past Sunday’s regular season Sox finale, the veteran announcer will call a yet-to-be-announced League Division Series for TBS, joined by former ML catcher Buck Martinez. This is Orsillo’s third year working for TBS in their playoff coverage. It is uncertain who will call the Red Sox-Angels series, but the candidates are — Dick Stockton and Bob Brenly, Orsillo and Martinez, Milwaukee Brewers play-by-play man Brian Anderson and Joe Simpson or Chip Caray and Ron Darling.

NESN baseball analyst Dennis Eckersley will work in the TBS studio with Ernie Johnson, Cal Ripken and former Sox pitcher David Wells. Yes, he actually pitched 38 games with Boston in 2005 and ’06.
