    Miller & Morgan 'OUT' at ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball

    John Popovich (Sports Director @ WCPO-TV/Channel 9 in Cincinnati) has just reported that Jon Miller and Joe Morgan will no longer be working ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball.

    Personally, I'm glad to see Morgan out. He seems tired and stale.

    Next step--do away with Sunday Night Baseball altogether.

    They might as well. Morgan and Miller were great together, and defined Sunday Night Baseball.

    Morgan and Miller were great together
    Absolutely. Miller's an absolute joy to listen to, and Morgan was good too.

    Wasn't a big Morgan fan, but he was still better than 80% of the options. What are they going to do, add Tim McCarver? nasty.

    As much as I dislike McCarver, I'd still rather listen to him than Joe Buck.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    No guesses as to who it will be, but I'll bet their replacements are at least 20 years younger, to appeal to younger folks.

    Give me Orel Hershiser and I'm a happy man...

    I read somewhere that it's expected to be Hershiser and Dan Shulman, with Bobby V. if he doesn't wind up managing, might be just a guess or a rumor, though.

    Seems like a little spin is happening on the ESPN front--they're saying Morgan "will not be renewed" when Morgan clearly has been the one in recent times to have a waining interest in ESPN (see his special assistantship with the Reds.) Heaven forbid that working for ESPN is not the be-all and end-all for a talented person like Morgan. I, for one, would love to see Joe manage the Reds someday.

    Jon Miller is one of the best play-by-play announcers in baseball, IMO. I love listening to him. As someone who watches Sunday Night Baseball, I'll miss listening to Miller and Morgan.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    I had no issue with the crew. I know Morgan was a lightning rod for some, but Jon Miller is a top-5 voice in the game.

    Hearing Jon Miller call a game has been the ONLY reason I have tuned into Sunday Night Baseball for the past ten years. Now that he's gone, I'll never watch it again unless the Reds are playing. How do you improve on Jon Miller?

    Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.
