Jerry Remy will remain out for remainder of Red Sox season 08.29.13 at 11:10 pm ET
By   |  55 Comments

Jerry Remy announced Thursday evening that he will remain off of the Red Sox‘ telecasts throughout the rest of the 2013 season to be with his family. Remy has not called a game for the Sox since his son, Jared Remy, was arrested on Aug. 16 and charged with the murder of his girlfriend, Jennifer Martel.

“I am full of grief for the Martel family,” Jerry Remy said in a statement. “My thoughts and prayers continue to go out to them. My wife and I are sick about this senseless tragedy. It’s clear this isn’t the time for me to return to broadcasting Red Sox games. It’s my hope that I can do so in the spring. I thank NESN and the Red Sox for their support through this nightmare.”

Red Sox lineup: After injury scare, Jacoby Ellsbury starting; Mike Carp scratched late 08.29.13 at 2:59 pm ET
By   |  15 Comments

One day after he hammered a foul ball off his right foot, Jacoby Ellsbury is back in the Red Sox lineup in his customary leadoff spot. Though he exited Wednesday’s game prior to the eighth inning — shortly after his foul ball found a small opening in his shin guard — X-rays were negative, and the 29-year-old said following the contest that he expected to play on Thursday. It appears he will do just that as the Red Sox look to sweep their three-game series against the Orioles.

UPDATE: While Mike Carp had been in the original starting lineup, one day after he drove in the game-winning run with a pinch-hit single in the bottom of the eighth, he was scratched after taking batting practice from his scheduled start at first base. Daniel Nava, originally slated to start in left, instead will be the Sox’ first baseman against Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman, while Jonny Gomes will be the Sox’ left fielder.

NESN announced Friday that Red Sox broadcaster Jerry Remy would be missing the team’s upcoming three-game series against the Orioles at Fenway Park. Dennis Eckersley will continue to fill-in for Remy, broadcasting the games alongside Don Orsillo.

Eckersley has been sitting in for Remy since Aug. 16, the day when Remy’s son, Jared, was charged with murdering his girlfriend.

The first two games of the series against Baltimore — Aug. 27-28 — coincides with the WEEI/NESN Jimmy Fund Radio-Telethon.

Stephen Drew is at shortstop and hitting seventh as Xander Bogaerts will be on the bench for the third time in four games since being recalled from Triple-A Providence.

On the mound for the Sox is John Lackey, who tossed 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball in his last start, earning his eighth win of the season in a 6-1 win ver the Yankees.

Poll: Was Ryan Dempster right to have hit Alex Rodriguez? 08.19.13 at 8:37 am ET
By   |  67 Comments

Most of the talk from Sunday night’s Red Sox-Yankees game centered on Ryan Dempster throwing multiple pitches at Alex Rodriguez in the second inning, eventually hitting him in the side. Although the Sox deny it was intentional, the widespread belief is that Dempster was sending a message to A-Rod, who has become arguably the most-despised player in the game after his latest controversies involving PEDs and him reportedly selling out fellow players in an attempt to defend himself.

Dempster squandered a 2-0 lead in the inning and the Sox went on to lose the game, 9-6, leading many to question whether it was worth it. Where do you stand?

What's your opinion on Ryan Dempster plunking Alex Rodriguez?

  • I fully support it because A-Rod deserves it (30%, 459 Votes)
  • He should not have thrown at him in any case (27%, 415 Votes)
  • The intent was OK, but it was the wrong time for it (20%, 311 Votes)
  • I like the idea, but he should have stopped trying after the first pitch that went behind A-Rod (19%, 294 Votes)
  • I don't care, but why do these teams always do something that makes the game last more than four hours? (3%, 48 Votes)
