In today's (6/27) Baseball Today podcast, ESPN's analysts Peter Pascarelli and Eric Kausilius addressed Morgan's comments on the basket at Wrigley. You can D/L the podcast from here if you're interested. They didn't say much, its about 16 minutes into it, they read an email from a Giants fan coming out to Wrigley for the Cubs/Giants series and asked for tips about Wrigley (what to do, etc):
Peter: Get there early if you're sitting in the bleachers so you can sit near the basket and grab cheap home runs....
Eric: You hear about the "cheap home run thing" that Joe Morgan said, right?
Peter: Yeah I think he was misunderstood a tad.
Eric: You understood the intention?
Peter: He wasn't dissing Ernie Banks. Its just a fact of life, its the ball park. You play to the ball park. Jim Edmonds has hit 6 home runs there, 5 of them to the opposite field at Wrigley Field. He has his swing grooved that way, which is the right way to play. Its no cheaper than the left center field in Philadelphia, its just the way the park is built. They didn't criticize Babe Ruth in Yankee Stadium when they built him a right field porch. So Joe certainly wasn't dissing Ernie Banks, I know some of the blogosphere is saying that, that was hardly the case. He was just saying you can hit a cheap home run at Wrigley, its not exactly a revelation.
So, there you go. Make of it what you will. The transcipt was done by me, so if its inaccurate, I'm very sorry. Edited for clarity.
