I say good riddance. I stopped watching non-Cubs Morgan-Miller broadcasts after listening him commentate on an A's game in the 2002 (?). The smugness was just OOZING out of the TV screen when the "3 run homer A's" couldn't win in the playoffs.
His likely Sunday night replacement would be Rick Sutcliffe. If there is a switch, it is not a given Miller would stay in the "Sunday Night Baseball" booth, either. He too could be moved to another night or over to the radio side.
This would be pretty cool, if Sutcliffe doesn't end up broadcasting for the Cubs. He's not that much better than Morgan as a color guy, but at least he's not a spiteful jerk (Banks Boulevard indeed)
What's coming to light is how unpopular Morgan has become with many of his ESPN colleagues, who are less than thrilled with the way he prepares for a telecast. Some of them also don't respond well to what they call Morgan's haughty attitude, which he has displayed during some of his more outspoken performances in internal ESPN meetings.
Prone to on-air mistakes, Morgan also has come under some intense media scrutiny. And during those moments when he's made a mistake, the give and take between him and Miller can sound strained.
I guess he's started wearing thin on other people. I hope they don't sack the Fremp on accout of Morgan's downfall within the network
