Boston Sports Media Watch:
As you’ve no doubt heard already, the son of NESN Red Sox analyst Jerry Remy was arrested this morning on the charge of murdering his girlfriend. Jared Remy was also a former Red Sox employee, having been fired in a 2009 steroids probe.
Jared Remy arrested in girlfriend’s killing
For the second time this summer, the Boston sports media has a murder to talk about. This one has a woman, a mother as the victim.
What this means for the future of Jerry Remy is unclear. NESN has not yet released any statement on his status, though it seems safe to assume he’ll be taking some away. WEEI afternoon show Salk and Holley was originally scheduled to broadcast from Jerry Remy’s Restaurant at Fenway today, that location has been changed to the Fenway Studios.
There is some more reaction on yesterday’s firing of Jason Wolfe by Entercom Boston:

BEST OF MAXIM
One of the greatest rivalries in sports resumes Friday night at Fenway Park where the first place Red Sox square off against the fourth place Yankees. This proves to be a key series for both teams as the Red Sox look to strengthen their division lead while the Yankees try to climb back into the American League East race. As of now if the season were to end today the Red Sox would...
Jared Remy, the son of NESN broadcaster Jerry Remy, is scheduled to be arraigned on a murder charge today in Waltham, Mass.
The younger Remy, according to a report on Boston.com, had been arrested earlier this week for allegedly assaulting Jennifer Martel, the woman whom he is now charged with killing. He was released on personal recogizance Wednesday, the website reported.
A little heightened Red Sox Yankees tension.
John Lackey isn’t really one to hold back, so it comes as no surprise that he would voice his opinion on the A-rod playing while appealing suspension situation.
I’ve got a problem with it. You bet I do,” Lackey said on Thursday. “How is he still playing? He obviously did something and he’s playing. I’m not sure that’s...
Few things say Boston more than Fenway Park and a Duck Tour. Now, the Red Sox will provide their fans with a chance to experience both on an upcoming game night.
While Boston is on its next homestand from Aug. 27 through Sept. 4, fans will be able to park their cars for free at the Prudential Center and hop on a free Boston Duck Tour, which will head right to Fenway Park. Fans will...
Will Middlebrooks has shown improvement since being recalled to the Red Sox. But don’t expect the Xander Bogaerts conversation to go anywhere.
Bogaerts continues to impress at Triple-A Pawtucket, which is causing quite the stir about when the Red Sox will finally call up their top prospect. General manager Ben Cherington joined WEEI’s Dennis and Callahan on Thursday, and he was...
Red Sox broadcaster Jerry Remy released a brief statement today about his son Jared Remy being charged with the murder of his girlfriend. Through Remy's official TWITTER feed (@Jerry_Remy), the Red Sox fan icon stated, "My thoughts and prayers go out to Jenn Martel and her family. Words cannot describe my wife's and my grief.

Winners of their last four games, the Pawtucket Red Sox come into Thursday night's game vs. the Louisville Bats riding high by leading the International League wildcard standings by a half a game over the Norfolk Tides. Anthony Ranaudo makes his third Triple-A start for the Pawsox and has been solid so far despite struggling last time out in Syracuse allowing five runs in five...
Things are turning bleak for the Boston Red Sox, who lost their third straight game and sixth of their last eight. A four-game lead in the AL East has dwindled to just one over the Tampa Bay Rays and after a 10-3 thumping by the rival New York Yankees, those in Red Sox Nation are beginning to fear the worse.
The Sox (72-52) can certainly turn it...
Another day, another game of missed opportunities for the struggling Boston Red Sox.
Pinch hitter Mark DeRosa hit a tiebreaking sacrifice fly in the seventh inning, Mark Buehrle pitched seven innings to win his fourth straight decision and the Toronto Blue Jays beat Boston 2-1 on Thursday night.
''Tonight, the story is (runners) left on base,'' Red Sox manager John...
Mark Reynolds, Alfonso Soriano and the rest of the Yankees got their hacks in Friday night, but if Red Sox fans had to pick any pitcher to come to the mound to halt Boston’s three-game losing streak (aside from a healthy Clay Buchholz), it would be John Lackey.
Despite having not recorded a win since July 12 and not faring all that well in his last outing against the Bronx Bombers...
Two words for Red Sox fans this morning - Rajai Davis.
Davis scored the winning run for the Blue Jays in the bottom of the tenth inning on a Brett Lawrie single to hand Boston a 4-3 loss. But it was what happened during a Davis at bat seven innings earlier that gave you the feeling this one wasn't going to go well for the Sox.
You see it...
(AP Photo/The Canadian Press, Nathan Denette)Sometime down the road, the Red Sox may look back on this gut-wrenching 4-3 loss with a series of regrets. They may regret letting Rajai Davis hit an inside-the-multiple-errors-HR to score the game's first run. They may regret squandering Mike Napoli's dramatic ninth-inning, two-out, two-run HR that tied the game. They might...
David Ortiz says he’s as surprised as anyone with the Blue Jays’ poor performance this year.
“When I saw what they put together in the offseason I was like ‘Whoa this is the competition.’ ”
Of course it didn’t turn out that way as Ortiz’s first-place Red Sox sit a comfortable 15 games ahead of the last-place Jays.
But Toronto at least lived up to Big Papi’s expectations...
The Boston Red Sox are beginning a three-game series against the New York Yankees on Friday night at Fenway Park. John Lackey is scheduled to pitch for Boston on Saturday, but he is not looking forward to facing Alex Rodriguez. It’s not that he fears the Yankees slugger — he just doesn’t think he deserves […]
