    Super excited to see both of these guys go. Particularly morgan, probably the worst baseball commentator alive. Unfortunately this decision came 21 years to late

    I liked them. I thought they were the only tolerable baseball announcers.

    Joe Morgan is a horrible announcer and an arrogant piece of shit.

    Dan Shulman and Hershiser would be a major upgrade.

    I wrote this a few years ago in a sports column I had:

    I didn't like them then either.

    Joe Morgans broadcasting career can be summed up by one line

    "Usually if you outscore your opponent, you win game"

    Let that sink in

    Yeah, but you liked John Flaherty, so your opinion means nothing.

    touche.

    I think I meant Murcer because I don't remember ever liking Flash (but then again I went on the record using Flash as an example)

    My favorite crew was O'Neill Murcer and Kay

    Hal-o-fucking-leulia.
    I hate the 3 second delay between the radio and the television because of these two ass clowns. It used to be great to mute the television and listen to Murphy, then Cohen on WFAN. It's sad how shitty Morgan is and how much of a blatant liar he is because he was a great player.

    The Mets were playing the Cubs when they first got Luis (fucking) Castillo and he had trouble catching a pop-up at Wrigley (I know, shocker), and Morgan goes on to point out, "Castillo's gonna have problems with the wind because he's not used to wind at Wrigley Field because he's been in the American League." ugh
    Hey fuckface, Castillo was on the Marilns for the better part of the decade before that. Hell, HE WAS IN THE STEVE BARTMAN GAME. Did anyone try to correct him, nope. Fuck you Morgan. As some other poster pointed out, this came way too late.

    I kind of tune out most broadcasters quite frankly, but I think I put up with these guys a little more than most. I wish sports broadcasters would remain neutral. I hate biased even if its for the team I am rooting for.

    Morgan was the worst color guy there is bar none. I have skipped watching games because they were moved to Sunday night.

    Nice! when I wrote that I did not even think about him being black. I meant color commentator.

    Be fantastic if Schulman stepped into the TV booth and did that.

    There appear to always be a constant friction between the two of them. Finally time for a positive change.
