From Fang’s Bites:
Due to Jerry Remy being out with pneumonia, NESN has to tap relief announcers to pitch in during the Remdawg’s absence. In the spring, Jerry contracted pneumonia and according to his Twitter page, Remy did not fully recover and went back to work too early.
This past weekend, Jerry missed the entire Red Sox-Tampa series. From Thursday-Saturday, NESN was able to bring in Buck Martinez from TBS and MASN to fill in.
I e-mailed NESN’s spokesman Gary Roy about the two game Yankees series and he told me that Dennis Eckersley will be working Don Orsillo with a special appearance by new NESN analyst Dave Roberts for a couple of innings today and tomorrow.
