Co-host of afternoon drive from 2-6 p.m. on 98.5 The Sports Hub, Tony Massarotti is a lifelong Bostonian who has been covering sports in Boston for the last two decades.
Massarotti worked for the Boston Herald from 1989-2008 and has written for the Boston Globe and Boston.com.
Massarotti has been twice voted by his peers as the Massachusetts Sportswriter of the Year (2000, 2008) and has authored three books, including the New York Times best-selling memoirs of David Ortiz, entitled “Big Papi.”
A graduate of Waltham High School and Tufts University, he lives in the Boston area with his wife, Natalie, and their two sons.
The question is whether the perception pf Dave Dombrowski and the reality of Dave Dombroski align. And I’m not sure they do.
Tony Massarotti has five Red Sox thoughts now that the dust has settled following the team’s disappointing ALDS finish.
Plain and simple, the Red Sox may not have an answer for Andrew Miller. Because nobody really does.
We’ll all miss David Ortiz when he finally rides off into the sunset, but at least we’ll get a few more weeks of “Big Papi.”
A subtle, grateful and honest tip of the cap to the 2016 AL East champions.
Tony Massarotti admits he was wrong about Hanley Ramirez… at least this year.
The AL East race will effectively be a Battle Royale. So, for the Red Sox, is that a good thing or a bad thing?
So here’s the question: How much is John Farrell to blame for this?
As well as the Red Sox have been playing lately, a closer inspection of the team’s performance makes you wonder whether they have merely masked a problem that has plagued them all year.
Tony Massarotti says the Red Sox can no longer just show up, especially at home, and wait for things to turn around.
