Mediocrity Travels

It was bad enough when Fox decided to essentially make Joe Buck the face of their sports broadcasting operation, giving him THREE jobs (lead baseball announcer, lead football announcer, and football pre-game show host), which necessitate his traveling every week and bringing the show with him.

Now comes word that equally mediocre ESPN baseball commentator Joe Morgan is so important to their presentation of the games that he was to announce both the Mets' game in Queens in the afternoon and the Yankees' game in the Bronx at night yesterday (the latter game, however, was rained out).

I'd have preferred neither; here, Aaron Gleeman goes through a few Miller/Morgan howlers from ALCS Game 1.
