Jerry Remy told the Boston Globe that he plans to remain in the Red Sox broadcast booth for NESN throughout the season, "even as his son Jared prepares to on on trial in October for the murder of Jennifer Martel," the Globe writes.
Remy said that his job hasn't been especially difficult while he's doing it, he said.
“I was really comfortable doing the games," said Remy. “I felt fine doing the games. It’s the off times that were tough. The games were fine. I didn’t feel like I was doing anything any differently than in the past.’’
Remy has, however, seen and heard the discussions in and around Boston that suggest he should step down from his position in light of recent developments, reported by the Globe, that spell out how the Remy family supported -- and perhaps enabled -- Jared after multiple alarming run-ins with the law.
“I’m not stupid,” he said. “I hear stuff, but I’d like to just pass on [commenting on] that. I’m planning on being there Monday and that’s the best I can say right now."
