We're not sure if this will make the folks at Fire Joe Morgan leap in bliss or slip into madness, but it appears everybody's soul-crushing Sunday Night Baseball analyst Joe Morgan is gonna have some company in the booth this year: Peter Gammons.
ESPN says Gammons will be a regular on the Sunday night broadcasts, though it's not known yet whether he will be in the booth with Morgan and Jon Miller, or if he will be "in the stands." We have a fear that Gammons — whom we genuinely like — will be reduced to Jim Grey status if he's mulling around the stands, so we'll cross our fingers that he's in the booth.
Particularly if he can reign in Morgan a little bit. We are desperate to see some classic Morgan-Gammons discussions on Billy Beane, traditional baseball statistics and (fingers crossed!) Pete Rose. It'll be awesome.
