NESN’s Jerry Remy just wrote on Twitter that he will not be part of tonight’s broadcast.
“Doctor just confirmed I have a bit of pneumonia. Suggested we get it under control before doing (the) Red Sox game. It’s day by day I guess,” he wrote.
Tonight would be the sixth game Remy has missed because of his illness. NESN has filled in with Peter Gammons and Dennis Eckersley and for one unfortunate night in Baltimore, Rick Dempsey.
