Jamie Moyer To Join ESPN's Baseball Tonight

While he’s not officially retired, pitcher Jamie Moyer will spend this season working as a analyst for Baseball Tonight. ESPN is expected to formally announce the addition of Moyer on Wednesday and his debut will come on Thursday.

Moyer had surgery last December to replace the ulnar collateral ligament in his elbow. He suffered the injury while pitching in the Dominican Winter Leagues.

At 48, Moyer hopes to pitch again in 2012.

“It’s been mentioned that I’d do well, blah, blah,” Moyer told USA Today on his new television career. “And as a player, you never know when your last year will be. And I’m not convinced I’ve had my last day.”

Kornheiser Radio Show Now For Download At ESPN Radio

On the one year anniversary of The Tony Kornheiser Show on ESPN Radio 980 (WTEM) in Washington, DC, the former Washington Post columnist announced that the best of would be available for download on ESPN Radio.

Tony Kornheiser was on ESPN Radio for six years between 1998-2004 before he was dismissed after a series of disagreements with management.

Fans of the show, affectionately known as “Littles,” got quite the scare at the end of last Friday’s show when “Famous Last Words” by Billy Joel played to close out the show, which normally signals the end of his radio run.

But it was business as usual on Tuesday’s show, who described the philosophy of the show to new listeners as, “funny, sarcastic and subversive.”

That humor was displayed last week when Kornheiser explained to his audience that he’s using his Sports Emmy Award for best Daily Outstanding Studio Talk Show (for Pardon The Interruption) as a toilet paper holder in his family bathroom.

(Insert bathroom humor joke here.)
