Joe Morgan is the perfect example of a guy who has never benefited by a more analytical fan. Before fans began developing their own systems and qualifications, Joe Morgan was the type of guy who could make statements with certainty, and, because it was a lazy Sunday night, we might have let them fly by us unchallenged. No longer.

Now, of course, a whole cottage industry of Morgan-bashing has developed, led, of course, by Mose Schrute and the gang at Fire Joe Morgan. But let's not forget Michael Lewis' famous (and rather prissy, actually) bitch-slap in Sports Illustrated.


Someday we might have a vote between Morgan and Tim McCarver. But for now: Just Morgan.

So: Do you like the Joe Morgan? Do you not like the Joe Morgan? Let us know.
