Sunday Night Baseball is Watchable Again
By Robert Snyder
So, yesterday ESPN announced they will be changing their Sunday Night Baseball announcing team. Jon Miller and Joe Morgan are both Hall of Famer’s and have been behind the mic for many of MLB’s notable moments over the past two decades.
Joe Morgan over the past few years has become one of the favorite whipping boys of the sports blogosphere and that’s something I don’t disagree with. Morgan would state the same points over-and0ver-and-over again and he never seemed to praise the play of the game’s elite players.
My watching of Sunday Night Baseball has been nonexistent over the past few years because I didn’t want to feel “worn out” watching a baseball game.
While an announcing booth is no place for stand-up comedy, I think there needs to be a feeling of “having fun” conveyed to the listener/viewer. In 2010 there are too many things out there that beat us up and make us feel down. Watching sports shouldn’t be one of them.
What do you think? Tell me in the comments below.
