Joe Morgan Was Aware That ESPN Thought He Stunk

Hardly anyone was surprised this week when Joe Morgan was let go by ESPN … not even Joe Morgan himself.

The former Sunday Night Baseball analyst released a statement on ESPN’s decision to let him go:

“I was not surprised by ESPN’s decision. They have been taking ‘Sunday Night Baseball’ in a different direction the last two years, and I was not comfortable with that direction.”

That’s just Joe being Joe, I guess.

Richard Sandomir of The New York Times had a great paragraph in today’s paper that sums up Morgan perfectly:

For some, Morgan’s end is a time to celebrate. He became cranky, often intransigent, frequently humorless and a grim listen – the Grumpy Old Analyst. I’ve always felt that he was, even at his best, too impervious to Miller’s lightheartedness, that he just didn’t get his partner’s wit.
