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.
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.
In 2016, in the American League, you can play well in close games and not be a very good team.
As far as breakdowns go, Thursday night was a doozy for the Red Sox.

A rather suspicious series of events preceded Christian Vazquez’s demotion to Triple-A.
So here you go, Celtics fans: your patience is now going to get tested.
So this is what it comes down to, after roughly 1,300 games this season and endless debate: LeBron vs. Steph.
Tony says there are five people worth watching this weekend.
