Report: Red Sox fired 2 staffers in steroid probe
BOSTON -- A Boston newspaper is reporting the Red Sox fired two security staffers last summer after an investigation into steroid use.
Jared Remy, the son of Red Sox television commentator Jerry Remy, and Nicholas Alex Cyr both told the Boston Globe they used steroids, but denied any knowledge of drug use by players.
The Red Sox issued a statement saying they worked with Major League Baseball in investigating the staffers, but said that investigation is confidential. Major League Baseball said its investigation was "thorough and detailed."
The Globe says state police confiscated a vial of steroids from Cyr's car just before last year's All-Star break and Cyr told police he had bought the drug from Remy.
