Boston Red Sox: Jenny Dell's TV Debut as Heidi Watney's Replacement

I don't really envy Jenny Dell, coming in to Red Sox Nation after Heidi Watney.

On Jan. 28, I expressed my surprise that Jenny, a relative unknown from the hinterlands of ESPN's fringe sports coverage, would be Heidi's replacement. (At the time of her hiring, she was in Aspen, working on the upcoming Winter X Games.)

I had spent my Christmas vacation laboring over pictures and bios of potential replacements for the lovely and talented Ms. Watney. (Yeah, I know—tough job, but somebody had to do it.)

The result was my presentation of 27 hottie candidates from all over the country, which you can view here.

Much to my chagrin, I did not include Jenny Dell as one of the 27. In fact, despite my exhaustive and distracting research, I had never even heard of Dell until her name was rumored as one of the finalists.

The new Red Sox sideline reporter was officially introduced and welcomed to Red Sox Nation by Don Orsillo and Jerry Remy during NESN's coverage of the Boston-Philadelphia spring training game last Saturday.

Although I don't think she's off to the best start, here are seven factors to consider before Red Sox Nation runs her out of town like Keith Foulke.
