Format: Hardcover
OK first has anyone got more from a mediocre at best career than Jerry Remy? That being said this is a fun little book. I like that Remy made an attempt to capture Red Sox from all generations. Like all his work it is obvious this was done in conjunction with the team as virtually every player listed is also a part of the team's Hall of Fame. Proof of this is the fact that Bill Lee, one exceptional part of Red Sox history and blocked from the Red Sox Hall of Fame is missing.

So this is enjoyable and fun but do yourself a favor and get it out of the library. No need to make Remy richer, he's already rich enough.

The marketing efforts of Jerry Remy continue.

Remy is a former Red Sox player who has found a good niche as Boston's color commentator on broadcasts. In addition to on-air work, Remy branched out into other areas, including merchandise, Web sites, and books. (Since the book was written, Remy has done other works and coped with a couple of serious difficulties in his personal life including illness.)

"Jerry Remy's Red Sox Heroes" was one of his many projects. If nothing else, it's easy reading -- the book should take most people a very short time to get through.

This is broken into a couple of sections, one major and one minor. Remy starts by picking out something of an all-time Red Sox team, roughly by position, and calls each of them a Red Sox hero. Remy comes up with 44 names in all -- wouldn't a 25-man roster been more appropriate, and more difficult? -- and then comes up with mini-biographies on each of them.

These are pretty short, a bit stat-heavy and filled out with pictures and a complete statistical review of the player's career. As you could imagine, the best ones have some sort of insight with the author, which means the players Remy either played with in Boston or commentated on afterwards. There is a little of that here, but not a great deal of it.

After that comes a section called "Great Moments and Great Teams." Remy and co-author Corey Sandler reviews Boston's 1967, 2004 and 2007 season, as well as Dave Henderson's 1986 homer, Dave Roberts' 2004 steal, and the development of some young stars in the past few years.

This is all pretty harmless and basic stuff. What's the big problem? A lack of new information. The history of the Red Sox has been covered pretty well in the last six years or so.
