Joe Morgan may not be on Sunday Night Baseball in coming Sundays

SHARE Joe Morgan may not be on Sunday Night Baseball in coming Sundays

Joe Morgan, Hall of Famer and muse of this incredibly popular blog, takes a lot of heat for his commentary. Morgan has been teamed with Jon Miller for 19 years on the weekly Sunday night broadcast, but that partnership could soon be a thing of the past.

From NY Daily News:

Sources said Morgan could be shifted to the network’s midweek baseball telecast, where he would work with a new play-by-play partner. His likely Sunday night replacement would be Rick Sutcliffe. If there is a switch, it is not a given Miller would stay in the Sunday Night Baseball booth, either. He too could be moved to another night or over to the radio side. We expect both Jon and Joe to be back in the Sunday night booth next season, an ESPN spokesman said. Of course there is a big difference between expect to be back and definitely returning. So there is something up here. Miller and Morgan have spent nearly two decades together. During that time their relationship has had its rocky moments. That’s no secret.
