Joe Morgan Out at ESPN

"Don't renew the contract of Joe Morgan" isn't quite as snappy as "Fire Joe Morgan," but technically, that's how Morgan's tenure as Sunday Night Baseball analyst will end. (His broadcast partner, Jon Miller, is off the Sunday Night telecast as well, though the Times reports that ESPN has asked Miller if he wants to stay on as the Sunday-night game's radio voice.) In honor of the occasion, we direct you to Tommy Craggs's terrific 2005 SF Weekly piece about Morgan, republished today on Deadspin. (Sample Morgan quote from the piece, on the topic of Moneyball: "Why would I wanna read a book about a computer, that gives computer numbers?") [Bats/NYT]
