RemDawg Signs Multi-Year Deal For Red Sox Telecasts

Remy (L); FN Editor-In-Chief (R) In 1992
There's one off-season deal that will not be controversial with fans. The Red Sox and their NESN television network signed a multi-year deal with legendary color analyst Jerry Remy. Reportedly, The RemDawg will appear on 115 Red Sox telecasts each year over the span of the pact, a role he has played for NESN since 1988. Remy was a second baseman for The Carmine Hose from 1978-1984—hitting .286. Battling health and personal issues over the last few years, Remy has missed substantial chunks of those seasons. Now healthy, the 64-year-old Somerset, Massachusetts-native is eager to get back in the booth, "I’m very excited and pleased to be able to continue doing the job that I love, now heading into my 30th year and beyond with NESN. I want to thank NESN and the Red Sox for all their support in the past and going forward." Best deal of the year!
