Red Sox announcer Jerry Remy apologizes for translator remarks


After Boston defeated the Yankees, 5-4, in Yankee Stadium, Remy reportedly left the broadcast booth and told reporters that he had no comment on the subject. Judge also lined a double. He then fanned Chris Carter with a full-count 99 miles per hour fastball that was well out of the strike zone, ending the inning. He said foreign pitchers should "learn baseball language".

The Astros, whose winning streak was snapped after 11 games, wasted an early lead and allowed the Kansas City Royals to rally for six runs in the last two innings for a 9-7 walk-off victory.

Tuesday night was a weird night for baseball, you had a broadcaster say Philadelphia Phillies star Odubel Herrera will never be a building block due to the fact he doesn't speak English, and last night on the NESN broadcast Jerry Remy made a comment about how non-English speaking pitchers should not be allowed translators during mound visits.

On the sixth pitch, Kelly deviated from fastballs and threw a hard slider that resulted in a swinging strikeout of the top home run hitter in the majors. Ramirez followed with a liner to left for a 4-1 lead. Johnson is 2-0 in a pair of spot starts for the Red Sox this year, and shut out Seattle on May 27. 1B Greg Bird (ankle) played back-to-back games in the field at Class A Tampa for the first time since going on the disabled list, meaning he could be ready to move to a higher level.

NESN and the Red Sox were quick to offer statements of their own on Wednesday. The reigning AL Cy Young Award victor has thrown at least six innings in each of his last 18 road starts, the longest active streak in the majors. He went 2-for-4 on Tuesday. He is 13-13 in 35 career starts vs. Boston.

"I don't think that should be legal", Remy told his NESN play-by-play man Dave O'Brien. "You break it down pretty easy between pitching coach and pitcher after a long period of time".

O'Brien then noted that "probably they're concerned about nuance being lost in some of those conversations".

When Yankees pitching coach Larry Rothschild visited the mound in the fourth inning to talk to Japanese starter Masahiro Tanaka he was accompanied by Tanaka's translator and Remy voiced his opinion on the translator's presence on the mound.

Remy, a popular figure among Red Sox fans, began working the team's broadcasts in 1988.
