Jon Miller, Joe Morgan not returning

Quote:
Jon Miller and Joe Morgan's 21-year run on ESPN's "Sunday Night Baseball" is over.

Morgan's contract is expiring and he will not be renewed. Miller's contract is also expiring though he may remain at ESPN working the "Sunday Night Baseball" series and postseason baseball for ESPN Radio.

"Jon and Joe have contributed greatly to the success of 'Sunday Night Baseball' for the past 21 seasons," ESPN executive vice president Norby Williams said in a statement Monday. "Over the last two decades, Joe went from Hall of Fame player to one of his sport's top analysts and Jon's Hall of Fame voice and tremendous knowledge of the game have connected with baseball fans everywhere. We owe them our deepest thanks for an outstanding body of work."

Miller, the play-by-play voice, received the Baseball Hall of Fame's 2010 Ford C. Frick Award. Morgan, the color commentator, was a two-time National League MVP with the Cincinnati Reds. The second baseman was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1990.

Could have lived with Jon Miller, but Joe Morgan was terrible.

Re: Jon Miller, Joe Morgan not returning

Orel Hershiser seems to be the logical replacement, I can definitely live with that. No clue about the play by play replacement.

Dan Shulman was what I heard. I'd be cool with that.

Dan Shulman, Orel Hershiser, and Bobby Valentine are the new team. Have no problem with Shulman, Orel I guess I could live with, but Bobby ****ing Valentine? That guy's probably the biggest quack on ESPN's baseball coverage now that Joe Morgan's gone. Save maybe Kruk.
