Jared Remy moves to center of Red Sox steroid probe

Jared Remy, self-confessed steroid user and son of Boston Red Sox broadcaster Jerry Remy, has become one of the primary figures in the Major League Baseball investigation into steroid abuse at the Red Sox by players including – allegedly – Manny Ramirez and David Ortiz.

Remy was one of two security personnel fired by the Red Sox organization last September and more recently questioned by MLB investigators, the other being Nicholas Alex Cyr. Cyr has now told the Boston Globe that Remy has been questioned about being a supplier.

Remy’s case was not helped by the fact that he has supplied steroids to Cyr himself. Then again, neither man is new to police records. Remy wascharged with assault and battery and resisting arrest in 2005 in an incident with a previous girlfriend, and Cyr was found asleep at the wheel of his car in the middle of Quincy Shore Drive in Boston last summer with the steroid Anadrol in his car.

The Globe’s own investigations have brought up associations with a friend of Ortiz, but no hard evidence of the two star players’ own drug usage.
