Jerry Remy - A Classic
Jerry Remy is the voice of Red Sox Baseball in Boston. Together with Don Orzillo, they entertain a TV viewer sometimes by cracking some banal jokes, sometimes a pun is fed off one another, always a lot of laughs. Jerry combines this with a player's knowledge of baseball that he has the ability to translate for even young novices along with seasonsed veterans. Hope his health improves and he is back in the booth soon.
PS: This just in from the NY Times: Manny Ramirez, the Dodgers All-Star outfielder, was suspended by Major League Baseball on Thursday for testing positive for a performance-enhancing drug. Ramirez’s suspension will begin tonight, M.L.B. said in a written statement, and will cost him about a third of his $25 million salary this year. He will be eligible to return July 3.
Ramirez said in a written statement released by the players’ association that he tested positive not for a steroid but for a medication that a doctor had recently prescribed him for a personal health issue.
“Unfortunately, the medication was banned under our drug policy,” Ramirez said.
