Orel Hershiser Continues to Shine on ESPN Radio

Five years ago, 1983-1994 Dodgers pitcher Orel Hershiser resigned from the front office of the Texas Rangers. Now here he is, providing color commentary on ESPN Radio for a World Series that involves his former managerial posting.

Hershiser and play-by-play partner Dan Shulman are a relatively recent ESPN TV-radio pairing; for the 2011 Cardinals-Rangers showdown, they are joined once again by ex-manager Bobby Valentine. At the close of  a Dodgers season of despair, it really has been a pleasure to be reminded during the ALCS and World Series of Hershiser’s very high baseball IQ.

Many color commentators are occasionally guilty of stretching or padding. Not so with Hershisher. Much like the pinpoint control that he used to wield from the pitching mound, this guy is dialed into the game with unerring, clear-eyed precision. In just a few years, he has become one of radio’s most commanding baseball experts.

Bill Simmons to Call His First NBA Game Tomorrow

ESPN blogger and resident Boston Celtics fan Bill Simmons will get his first crack at the telestrator tomorrow night–calling the Miami Heat vs. Golden State Warriors game for ESPN. He’ll work alongside Dan Shulman and Mark Jackson.

Simmons has done TV before, sitting in on ESPN’s popular “Pardon the Interruption” show, and he also hosts a regular podcast. But it will be interesting to see how he does on live TV. He used to write jokes for the Jimmy Kimmel Show, so we know he’s funny. The one problem we can foresee is that Simmons is a huge Boston homer and hates LeBron James and the Heat with a passion. Will he be able to control himself? Can’t imagine the league will be happy if Simmons rips on their most intriguing team for the entire game.
