NESN announced late last night that Red Sox icon Jerry Remy will miss the remainder of the 2013 season. Remy has been away from the broadcast booth since August 16th, when his son Jared was charged with the murdering his girlfriend. Remy released the following statement, "I am full of grief for the Martel family. 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." It's unclear who will takeover for Remy for the balance of the season—although Hall of Famer Dennis Eckersley has been doing a great job of substituting.
