No More Morgan on Sunday Nights

Jon Miller, Joe Morgan not returning to 'Sunday Night Baseball' TV broadcast - ESPN

Should there be a party?

Now if we could only get rid of McCarver....

Bobby Valentine would be refreshing.

I would've preferred him in the Brewers' dugout.

According to what I read Miller will not be on Sunday Night Baseball.

I would have preferred him in the Indians' dugout. Manny Acta? Really? I imagine they didn't want to pay Valentine. Well, we got what we paid for.

If you subscribe to SIRIUS radio, Manny Acta was a regular guest on Mad Dog Unleased (Chris Russo formerly of Mike and the Mad Dog on WFAN in NY) during the play-offs. IMO, he was a good analyst and if things do not work out with the Indians Acta could have a good career at ESPN.

Maybe because Joe Buck and Tim McCarver did such a great job in the post season this year they're going to to get the Sunday night baseball gig.

I read that it will be Dan Shulman as play by play and Orel Hershiser in the booth and possibly Bobby V.

I don't know Shulman, but I can't imagine he'd be worse than Miller.

Dan Shulman did the Sunday night radio broadcasts for ESPN, among other duties. He's always seemed a quite capable play-by-play man. Good riddance to Joe Morgan, who suffers from invincible ignorance.

I dunno: I think it's blameworthy.
