The Boston Globe reports that Jared Remy, the son of Boston Red Sox broadcaster Jerry Remy, has been charged with murdering his girlfriend. Remy allegedly stabbed Jennifer Martel to death in their apartment last night. Martel’s daughter was in the apartment at the time.

The alleged murder took place one day after Remy appeared on in court to face allegations that he assaulted Martel on an earlier occasion. Remy is scheduled to be arraigned today on murder, domestic assault and battery charges at Waltham, Massachusetts District Court, the Globe reports.

      STEROIDS.

      Go look at his photo on Boston.com. He looks a balloon about to burst.

      • Hunter Pence's Eyes - Aug 16, 2013 at 12:50 PM

        “In 2009, the Globe reported that Remy and a second member of the Red Sox security staff were implicated in steroid use”

        Roid rage at it’s finest. Such a shame.

      • The Common Man - Aug 16, 2013 at 1:30 PM

        By all means, let’s blame it on steroids. Let’s make sure this man who abused his girlfriend and eventually killed her has an excuse other than being a terrible person. I’m so glad trained steroid experts and psychologists like you are on hand to give an accurate reading of this person’s mindset, having diagnosed him from a Goddamned picture and a news article. God, you’re both terrible.

      • bigmeechy74 - Aug 16, 2013 at 8:51 PM

        Jeez what a despicable human being

      • sharmaine73 - Aug 16, 2013 at 10:30 PM

        Don’t worry Common Man. Steroid use will not exonerate him and I don’t think anyone here thinks it should. It’s not an excuse. He’s a slimey human being and no one forced him to shoot himself up with steroids. He’s definitely going down.

    What a piece of shit

    • cohnjusack - Aug 16, 2013 at 10:38 AM

      I like that two people down-thumbed this. I’m imaging they’re thinking “Well, I sure hate that he murdered her, but did he really have to resort to naughty words?”

  3. hushbrother - Aug 16, 2013 at 10:07 AM

    Tough times for Jerry. First lung cancer, now this.

    • bobwsc - Aug 16, 2013 at 10:17 AM

      not as bad as what the victim’s family is going through

      • cohnjusack - Aug 16, 2013 at 10:39 AM

        Isn’t it possible to have empathy for both?

      • sabatimus - Aug 16, 2013 at 11:15 AM

        cohnjusack, I understand you’re question was very likely rhetorical, but yes, it is definitely possible. We Sox fans think of Jerry first because we know him better than any of the parties involved. That may be misguided given the facts of the situation above, but it is what it is.

  4. beefytrout - Aug 16, 2013 at 10:21 AM

    Did this even need to be posted here?

    • Bryz - Aug 16, 2013 at 10:28 AM

      It’s related to the broadcaster of the Red Sox, so I’d say it does.

      • beefytrout - Aug 16, 2013 at 11:39 AM

        east coast bias much?

      • RoyHobbs39 - Aug 16, 2013 at 12:19 PM

        I am sure if it was Vin Scully’s grandson, or Billy Beane’s half-brother it would be noteworthy as well. Craig was relating a news story related to a prominent baseball figure. I believe that is the purpose of this blog right?

      • Bryz - Aug 16, 2013 at 12:55 PM

        beefytrout, I’m a Twins fan that lives in Minnesota. But sure, keep accusing me of having an East Coast bias.

        Besides, it doesn’t matter if this was Remy’s child, Bert Blyleven’s, Steve Berthiaume’s, Vin Scully’s, or any other broadcaster’s child. This is still newsworthy for a baseball blog.

    • brewcrewfan54 - Aug 16, 2013 at 10:29 AM

      It is baseball news no matter how unpleasant it may be.

    • bigmeechy74 - Aug 16, 2013 at 8:53 PM

      yeah

  5. thedripfeed - Aug 16, 2013 at 10:45 AM

    Sox fans still will act like what Arod did is worse…

    • turdfurgerson68 - Aug 16, 2013 at 11:12 AM

      You’re an idiot.

      • jcmeyer10 - Aug 16, 2013 at 11:38 AM

        I was going to chime in but this about sums it up.

      • thedripfeed - Aug 16, 2013 at 12:20 PM

        No I am a Yankee fan

      • paperlions - Aug 16, 2013 at 12:47 PM

        You appear to be both.

        Living in eastern CT, I am surrounded by somewhat insufferable Red Sox fans. Not a single one has mentioned the ARod biogenesis thing except in passing….they really don’t care about anything but their team winning (and after last year, they are all staying quiet and holding their breath)….the Yankees impending doom is just icing on the cake (but they aren’t reveling in that yet either as they are well aware of the Yankees history of not dying when they were supposed to be dead already).

      • turdfurgerson68 - Aug 16, 2013 at 12:52 PM

        Sure, better policing, the removal of lead in gasoline, legalized abortion, etc. all have helped lower crime in its totality.

        But that doesn’t change the fact that someone gets shot somewhere in this country every day, regardless of the media coverage.

    • hammyofdoom - Aug 16, 2013 at 1:20 PM

      I HOPE that youre joking. If so, horrible taste. If not then as a sox fan you can go to hell. What arod did is no where near comparable to murder and any sane human knows that

  6. xpensivewinos - Aug 16, 2013 at 10:50 AM

    What the hell is in the water in the Commonwealth of Massachusettts these days?

    • turdfurgerson68 - Aug 16, 2013 at 11:14 AM

      Probably the same stuff that’s in the water of every other state.

      Seems like there’s a shooting or multiple shooting everyday somewhere in the USA.

      • hackerjay - Aug 16, 2013 at 11:54 AM

        Keep in mind that the murder rate in the US is less than half of what it was at the peaks in the ’70s, ’80s, or ’90s. There aren’t more shootings nowadays, there isn’t more crime. We just hear about it more.

        The last ten years have been the safest since at least the 1950s.

        >>>”The last ten years have been the safest since at least the 1950s.”

        Well, yes and no. The 1960s rates were either about a full percentage point lower than the last 10 years or about the same. Also, since we’re talking about shootings, that while the rate of murders declined, the rate of firearms used in those murders since 1999 has about the same, which is probably it seems like there are fatal shootings every day (because there are).

      • asimonetti88 - Aug 16, 2013 at 2:44 PM

        I hate to derail what I am sure will be a fine, spirited discussion on firearms, shootings and crime, but this murder was committed with a knife.

  7. brewcrewfan54 - Aug 16, 2013 at 10:55 AM

    Deadspin’s article says this guy was arrested for assault back in 2005. He was also fired by the Sox for being a steroid dealer, Admits that he used steroids, was obviously arrested recently for assaulting the same woman he has now been accused of killing. He sounds like an all around bad guy.

  8. Stiller43 - Aug 16, 2013 at 10:59 AM

    I just woke up…read that quickly as “ron jeremy’s son”…was like “wtf?”

    I need coffee.

  9. imnotyourbuddyguy - Aug 16, 2013 at 11:02 AM

    Too bad he wasn’t dating A-Rod

    • Old Gator - Aug 16, 2013 at 11:46 AM

      Too bad he wasn’t dating you.

      • imnotyourbuddyguy - Aug 16, 2013 at 3:58 PM

        Shouldn’t you be getting ready for your date with Natslady? Doesn’t she owe her hero a lil something?

      • Old Gator - Aug 17, 2013 at 1:46 AM

        Shouldn’t you be getting ready to go another puffed up, mindlessly indignant couple of rounds with Unclemoses?

  10. thebadguyswon - Aug 16, 2013 at 11:04 AM

    Guess its tough to raise a son when you aren’t home most of the time while they’re growing up.

    • brewcrewfan54 - Aug 16, 2013 at 11:09 AM

      Plenty of other broadcasters, not to mention players, seem to have managed just fine.

      • thebadguyswon - Aug 16, 2013 at 11:10 AM

        Sure….ol Jerry didn’t, did he?

      • brewcrewfan54 - Aug 16, 2013 at 11:23 AM

        Your original statement makes it sound like its commonplacs in sports, which it doesn’t seem to be. And while I have no idea whT kind of parent he is, but sometimes kids are just screw ups no matter how hard the parents try.

      • The Common Man - Aug 16, 2013 at 1:35 PM

        I’d wager the only people who really know what the dynamics are like between Jerry Remy and his son are Jerry Remy, his son, and the rest of their family, jackass.

    • aceshigh11 - Aug 16, 2013 at 11:13 AM

      That’s a bit of a foolish statement.

      Literally thousands of pro sports players with children are on the road hundreds of days a year, and very few of them end up criminals.

      This sucks for Jerry…he’s gone through cancer and major depression, and now this.

      And YES, I do feel compassion for the victim and the victim’s family too. It is possible to do both simultaneously.

    • sabatimus - Aug 16, 2013 at 11:38 AM

      If you take thebadguyswon’s statement at face value, it IS tough to raise a son when you aren’t home most of the time. I think people are assuming that somehow this arrangement automatically makes the son a murderer or a criminal, which is false.

    • schnitzie - Aug 16, 2013 at 1:23 PM

      You realize you’re also taking a colossal crap on parents in the armed services, right?

      Way to go, dumba$$.

      • thebadguyswon - Aug 18, 2013 at 10:44 AM

        LOL….no I’m not idiot. I’m taking a colossal crap on Jerry Remy.

    • The Common Man - Aug 16, 2013 at 1:34 PM

      Guess it’s easy to judge family dynamics when you don’t know the people involved. Guess it’s easy to speculate without any knowledge at all, frankly. Clearly, you’re doing all right.

  11. sabatimus - Aug 16, 2013 at 11:12 AM

    Sadly, I’m not surprised by this, given his history. He struck me as someone who did not have his head set on straight well before this happened. So sorry for the Martels, who are obviously going to be devastated by this. And so sorry for Jerry. Sometimes I wonder, when I see him on NESN, if he laughs so much because otherwise he’d be crying.

    • aceshigh11 - Aug 16, 2013 at 11:17 AM

      Jerry and Don have great chemistry…I love when they start chuckling and can’t stop.

      He went through a major bout of depression after his cancer treatment. This is really a sad story for all involved.

  12. gerryb323 - Aug 16, 2013 at 11:31 AM

    Dude was just released on the assault charge Wednesday; wow.

  13. kane337 - Aug 16, 2013 at 1:11 PM

    Harry Caray, Skip Caray, Chip Caray….they all turned out ok.

  14. theskinsman - Aug 16, 2013 at 2:32 PM

    What team did this guy play for,Craig? The victim? Run out of ways to defend A-roid,so you now copy stories from newspapers to HBT? Well done…for you.

  15. twondako - Aug 16, 2013 at 6:22 PM

    This is serious! They beat you. If you decide to leave, they kill you. What should abused women do? Should they continue to suffer physical, mental and emotional and sexual abuse in order not to get killed by the same person they profess to love? I don’t get it! What should abused women do? May be abused women should kill the abuser before leaving because statistics shows that the abuser will track the abused woman down and kill her if she leaves him. Just a thought!

    • jimeejohnson - Aug 16, 2013 at 9:50 PM

      Two wrongs don’t make a right. Never did. Never will.

      • Old Gator - Aug 17, 2013 at 1:49 AM

        You’re assuming that killing someone to keep them from killing you is “wrong.” There is such a thing as a right to defend yourself.

  16. millmannj - Aug 16, 2013 at 7:39 PM

    I had the NESN feed on Extra Innings for the Yanks/Sox game and I was thinking to myself, where’s Remy? Then I read this. So sad.

  17. vanmorrissey - Aug 17, 2013 at 6:51 PM

    Hey Commonman, steroid use and abuse is correct. Read the write up dingbat and look at the pictures. Circumstantial, yea, but you’re an idiot if you can’t tell he was doing drugs and steroids were part of it.
