It's really true!

Of course, the first time we were told that Joe Morgan would no longer be part of ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball, it was 2008 and it was reported by the New York Daily News--not exactly accuracy at it's finest. But now the Worldwide Leader has announced it, so it must be official: Joe Morgan and Jon Miller are out!

This makes me happy. It's well-documented on LomHenn and on a few other websites (like this one) that Joe Morgan is not a particularly good baseball analyst, so it's about time ESPN caught up to what a lot of hardcore baseball fans have thought for awhile now. And I'm not a big fan of Miller, either, though he hasn't been as annoying to me over the last couple of years.

There is a downside--no more Joechats on ESPN.com! As a result, everyone's baseball IQ has gone up 20 points...even those people who don't care about baseball.

I would really love to see what Ken Tremendous and the guys would have said about this! I know we would like to think that we had a hand in this, but I think enough of us spoke out about the atrocious commentating through the years that it finally caught up to them.

Let's just hope that ESPN can replace Miller and Morgan with a better pair in the booth. I'm not holding my breath!
