One Voice I’ll Miss (And One Not So Much…)


I heard the other day that these two guys (Jon Miller and Joe Morgan) will no longer be calling games together on ESPN.

I’ll miss Jon Miller.  He didn’t have the greatest insights into the game, but his voice was both pleasant and exciting to listen to.  Here’s an example:


On the other hand, Joe Morgan (a star from the Cincinnati Big Red Machine long ago) was one of the most knowledgeable baseball guys I’ve ever heard behind a mic. Trouble was, he was too arrogant to really be likeable on-air, radiating a brusque manner that undermined his tremendous knowledge.

I didn’t mind Morgan as much as others did, but I could see where he’d get on people’s nerves. Miller, on the other hand, was a guy I respected behind the mic – a Hall of Fame broadcaster with a professional voice. He does a great job doing the Giants games and the national radio games in the postseason. Hope he continues both.
