Over this past weekend, Red Sox owner John Henry and Chief Baseball Officer Claim Bloom were booed and heckled while walking on stage at the Red Sox Winter Weekend at the MassMutual Center in Springfield.

Videos on social media highlighted most of the moment of Red Sox fans venting their frustrations of the team, the high ticket prices and the recent roster moves (or lack thereof).

  • But would you have known any of this if you ONLY watched the NESN broadcast of the Red Sox Winter Weekend last night? 

    The answer: Probably not. NESN made a few edits here and there and they’re not denying it either.


  • “The show tonight at 8p — as is always the case with television production, we made tweaks where needed to accommodate sound quality in the unique amphitheater environment at MGM and condensing a 90-min period to the hour-long format of the show. With that said, the lion share of the ownership/front office Q&A is included in the show.”

  • During this morning’s Toucher & Rich radio program, Fred and Rich highlight some of the key edits that left a lot of the booing and heckling on the cutting room floor.
