Miller and Morgan are all done as the voice of Sunday Night Baseball Click Here (sports.espn.go.com). I really liked them back when I was younger, but they were younger and I was younger and everything seemed new.
I still like Miller enough where I wouldn't tune out if he were doing a game, he's got that baseball voice. Joe Morgan on the other hand has worn me out. I remember liking him, and I can't remember when I turned on him, but I will not miss listening to him anymore.
21 years is a long run, but the team had run it's course ... if they replace them with Berman though then we've got problems.

I can't remember exactly for me either, but it seems like it was about five to seven years ago. He got tired of young players being compared to him and felt it necessary to repeatedly remind the viewers that he WON MANY CHAMPIONSHIP RINGS AS A PLAYER WITH THE CINCINATTI REDS. He still offered a lot to the broadcasts but just came across as bitter over the last few years.
Please not Sutcliffe. He already ruins Wednesdays for me.
Noted sabrmetrician Tom Tango was asked today whether Chipper Jones' 16+ seasons, all under manager Bobby Cox is a record. He set his computer to work on that question and came up with a couple answers to interesting trivia questions.
