He currently works as a studio analyst for the Boston Red Sox on NESN, where he primarily provides post-game coverage, analyzing the strengths and weaknesses of the team's play. He also has a multi-year deal with TBS to serve as an analyst for their post-season coverage. In the Spring of 2009, regular NESN commentator Jerry Remy took time off for health reasons. Eckersley filled in for Remy, providing color commentary alongside Don Orsillo.
Eckersley is known for his eccentric vocabulary: most notably, he often refers to a pitcher's ability to throw in the mid to upper 90's as "cheese." He also refers to the act of hitting a home run as "going bridge", and to hair, whether on the head or the face, as "moss."
Eckersley spends time with his three children Mandee, Jake, and Allie. During the summer, he lives in the Turner Hill golf community in Ipswich, Massachusetts. His daughter is a student of the Dr. Franklin Perkins School.

Famous quotes containing the word career:
“A black boxers career is the perfect metaphor for the career of a black male. Every day is like being in the gym, sparring with impersonal opponents as one faces the rudeness and hostility that a black male must confront in the United States, where he is the object of both fear and fascination.”
—Ishmael Reed (b. 1938)
