BOSTON (CBS) –  Red Sox fans will have to enjoy a few more games without the “Rem Dawg” doing play-by-play.

Jerry Remy tweeted Monday morning doctors told him he has a “bit of pneumonia” and have recommended he gets it under control before returning to the NESN booth.

    remdawg – get well. missed your banter with orsillo the other night when the game was on mlb network. as a member of the nation living in yankee universe, getting that taste of what was home for over 30 yrs is so refreshing (since mom mans the remote & is a yankee fan). health is wealth. get better!
