Warning to ESPN: You might have to change Baseball Tonight to a five-hour-long format.
The sports network announced today that notoriously long-winded Phils veteran lefthander Jamie Moyer will be joining their signature baseball show as a periodic guest analyst.
The job seems logical for a guy like Moyer. Only problem: once you get him talking about pitching, you find yourself in desperate need of Dave Chappelle's Wrap-it-Up Box.
Moyer will debut tomorrow, Thursday, March 31, contributing to ESPN’s Opening Day coverage (including the midnight ET episode of Baseball Tonight). He will provide analysis on Baseball Tonight throughout the season.
“I’m excited about the opportunity to work at ESPN,” Moyer said in a statement. “It’s a new challenge and I look forward to this forum as a chance to elaborate on the art of pitching as I rehab from injury this season. I hope to get back on the diamond in the future.”
