Jerry Remy Sick, Flies Home

For more on Jerry’s health in 2011…read about his bout with pneumonia.
——
UPDATE (08/12/09): Jerry Remy returns to Fenway Park for the first time since May, and could return to the booth soon.

UPDATE (08/05/09): According to his son, Jerry is now cancer-free and feeling better! There’s no timetable for his return, though…

UPDATE (05/06/09): Jerry Remy will be taking an indefinite leave from NESN after undergoing cancer surgery. More from Boston.com

New England Sports Network has announced Jerry Remy, the beloved color commentator of NESN’s Red Sox telecasts and president of Red Sox Nation, will be taking an indefinite leave from the broadcast booth to recover from cancer surgery.

“I want to focus on completing my recovery,” Remy said in a report posted on NESN.com, “so that I can return to work without distractions or interruptions.”

So, you just turned on the game and asked yourself, what is that weird voice with Don Orsillo? Where’s the Rem-Dawg?

Legendary Red Sox announcer Jerry Remy has decided to fly home from the Red Sox road trip due to an illness. According to the Globe, his symptoms “are the same as those that kept him sidelined for the outset of spring training.”

Remy could be back for Wednesday’s game against the Cleveland Indians. Buck Martinez, Dennis Eckersley, and others will continue to fill in for Remy with Don Orsillo for NESN broadcasts.

  1. Get well fast, Jerry! Martinez is awful in so many ways. I hate it when TBS gets the ALDS coverage. What an irritating big mouth.

  6. Take your time getting back in the booth, Jerry. I don’t like your money hungry, self promoting ways. I simply want to watch Red Sox baseball. I don’t care about anything your promoting for cash and would NEVER purchase anything. Hope you never come back.

  8. Jeff,

    I think you should learn the difference between “your” and “you’re”. Jerk.

    Get well quick, Remdawg. You’re the best color-man in the business.

  9. Hurry back Jerry. We miss you. The broadcasting is so “dull” since you have been gone. Don is a nice guy but without your sense of humor, it’s just not the same. As far as your post goes Jeff whoever you are , I hope you are the one that never comes back. You’re a disgrace to have your name on the same page with Jerry Remy.

  13. Whoever said “Swineflu claims another victim” sure does have a flair for the dramatic (one person has died from the swine flu in america, and it was a sickly mexican child in texas, its been so overblown).

    Jerry remy, according to his own Twitter said during the spring he had pnemonia and an infection, and he is now “Paying the price for it”. He’s fine

  33. I was in the hospital for awhile i missed a few games. Then I got home to my big screen to watch the Red Sox. But some thing was missing. That other voice with Don O. wasn’t The Rem Dog. Know I find out that the Rem Dog is confind to the kennell. Please get well and come back as soon as you can. I seen my first Sox game in 1942. It was against Chicago. I heard and seen your first show for NESN was it NESN at that time? You looked a little intimadated, Hell who wouldn’t Be..

    Being a cancer survivor myself, I KNOW that you will make a full recovery.

    Cherish your family at this time, but know how many people “feel” like they are “part of your family”!

  68. Jerry,
    After growing up in R.I. watching you play with the SOX, then so fortunate now living in FL. to get NESN via MLB and hear your Color commentary, is like being back home at Fenway. GOD SPEED for a recovery that will bring you back to Don. I love you both, it has been such fun to watch you enjoying each other & loving the game. God Bless you & your family.

    Posted by Lynanne Mims | May 14, 2009, 12:03 am
  69. Jerry – you and Don are the best! I believe fans are loyal to the broadcasters – not the team. The players change, the uniforms change, the managers and coaches change but the broadcasters remain and are our link to the team. I love it the most when the game is boring and you and Don start laughing and you make Don not be able to breathe – he’s laughing so hard. Please take care and get well – we miss you so much.

  97. It’s not the same watching the games without our Rem Dawg. Every game I’m in hopes you’ll be back making the game special like you are to Red Sox Nation.

  98. though very late in the game… to the fellow above jeff. its obvious your life hasnt been touched by cancer, nor any life changing illness…. and i hope it doesnt because i would never wish the pain the adversity it brings. On another note i hope something in your life that doesnt involve anyone else makes you realize the low life scumbag nature of your comment. your insensitivity is gut wrenching, i hope you grow up and quickly.

  110. I have been in Tampa for 4 baseball seasons and am returning to MA shortly for good. My family up there didn’t tell me what happened with you. My prayers are with you and your family. Take good care of yourself, heal your body Red Sox Nation misses your voice.

    God bless you and your family.

  111. Jerry:

    I hope all is well with your recovery. One thing that will help your recovery speed up is watching ECK try and do your job. I think you know where I am going with this. Get well soon! We REALLY REALLY REALLY miss you. Maybe Don will let you use the NESN Helicopter when you are ready to make your return!!!!
    On a more serious note: Our prayers are with you and your family. Take care and may you have a smooth and speedy recovery Dave H

  112. I keep looking and listening for updates about Jerry’s health progress and there is nothing. Why is this? So many people in Red Sox nation care. I know Jerry is a very private person but there must be something you can tell us.

    A concerned fan.
