The Red Sox Won One, But Let the Schadenfreude Continue

Although really, nobody can feel good about this. Must be a warm, loving family, though.

WOBURN, Mass. -- The son of longtime Boston Red Sox broadcaster Jerry Remy pleaded guilty to murder and other charges for stabbing his girlfriend last year and attacking people who tried to help her, and was immediately given the mandatory sentence of life in prison without parole.
Jared Remy, 35, admitted in Middlesex Superior Court that he fatally stabbed 27-year-old Jennifer Martel in August. He described himself as "the bad apple'' and called Martel "an angel'' but said that he killed her one night because she had a knife and was threatening him.

Remy pleaded guilty to first-degree murder, assault and battery, and violating a restraining order, among other charges.
His father, a former Red Sox second baseman who has been a color analyst on team broadcasts on the New England Sports Network since 1988, was not in court for the hearing.
In a statement after his sentencing, Remy said "blame me for this, not my family." According to the Boston Globe, he also said, "And if you asked my family, they'd rather have me dead than her."

This is sort of a mean-spirited post. If a member of RSN had done the same to us, we'd be calling them low-class Massholes, because that's what they'd be.
