Now that Jared Remy has pleaded guilty to first-degree murder and related charges in the August stabbing death of his girlfriend Jennifer Martel, we ask you:

Should his father, Jerry Remy, remain on as the color commentator on NESN’s Boston Red Sox broadcasts? Or would it be better if he stepped out of the spotlight?

Let us know in the comments below.

The younger Remy was sentenced to life in state prison Tuesday without the possibility of parole. Remy, 35, stabbed Martel, 27, to death last August in their Waltham apartment, just a day after he was arrested for allegedly shoving her into a mirror.

In court Tuesday, Remy distanced himself from his parents. He said, “Blame me for this, not my family,” and, “If you asked my family, they’d rather have me dead than her.”

Remy and Martel’s daughter, Arianna, now 5, who was home at the time of the murder, will spend time with Jerry Remy and his wife Phoebe moving forward.

Jerry Remy wasn’t in the NESN booth during the Red Sox recent series with the Atlanta Braves.

No. I can't watch Jerry as the color commentator aka clown on the games anymore. My main problem is that he/his wife talked with Jennifer Martel and after that conversation she decided to cease pursuing the restraining order. We can't know what they said It means I just can't see Jerry in a light-hearted role anymore.

Then don't watch. You can't hold Jerry Remy accountable for the actions of his son.

He needs to stay with the Red SOX it is not his fault his son killed his girlfriend
