Jerry Remy To Take Time Off From Red Sox Broadcasts

Red Sox color commentator Jerry Remy, whose son Jared has been charged with murder in the stabbing death of his girlfriend, will be replaced in the booth by Dennis Eckersley for tonight's home game against the Yankees and for next week's west coast trip, NESN announced.

Saturday's and Sunday's Yankees-Red Sox games are national broadcasts that will not be televised by NESN. The Red Sox then play three games the Giants in San Francisco before going to Los Angeles to play another three against the Dodgers.
