    Dave Roberts Joins NESN team

    Dave Roberts's legs are already a part of Red Sox lore. Now fans will get to know his voice as well.

    NESN announced today that Roberts, the former Red Sox outfielder and postseason hero, has joined the network to serve as a studio analyst. Roberts will join Hall of Famers Dennis Eckersley and Jim Rice on NESN's pre- and post-game shows.

    “We are thrilled to have Dave join our team of outstanding studio analysts,” said Joel Feld, NESN’s executive vice president of programming and executive producer. “Dave is an icon in Red Sox Nation. He has a deep knowledge of the game and understands the passion of Red Sox fans.”

    Roberts will make his NESN debut this Monday from the new Yankee Stadium when the Red Sox play the Yankees. During the game, he will also join NESN’s Red Sox broadcast team of Don Orsillo and Jerry Remy in the booth for a couple of innings.

    Forever known for his crucial, season-saving stolen base in the ninth inning of Game 4 of the 2004 American League Championship Series against the Yankees, Roberts recently retired after 10 years in the major leagues. He played for four other teams besides the Red Sox, compiling a .266 career batting average with 243 stolen bases.

    Pretty cool. He was awesome when he was in the booth earlier this year

    That's cool. Kind of crazy how he spent more time in cities like LA, San Diego, and San Fran, yet he's coming to Boston..Where he spent a few months, and is a legend.

    I love how nobody doesn't like Dave Roberts. Even if he didn't steal that base everyone would still love him haha. This is good news.

    Good stuff. This guy accomplished so much for our team, by doing very little. I'm sure he'll be a fantastic analyst, as well.

    Well, he's a classy guy in the same way Mike Lowell is, so it's not hard for me to see why he is so well liked.

    Of course, stealing the base of all bases certainly helped.
