Former Mets GM Steve Phillips Joins ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball

Former Mets GM Steve Phillips will be joining ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball crew of Jon Miller and Joe Morgan.

Phillips is presently a member of ESPN’s Baseball Tonight program, offering analysis.

His debut for Sunday Night Baseball will be on April 5th.

"Steve has emerged as a leading and extremely well-connected baseball expert, excelling in both game and studio analysis, and adding his up-to-the-minute, inside information will only enhance the fan experience with our marquee Sunday Night Baseball franchise., The pace of a baseball telecast affords the opportunity for three outstanding voices to provide commentary, detailed information and anecdotes."

~ Norby Williamson, ESPN's executive vice president of production ~

"It's a tremendous honor to join Sunday Night Baseball, the preeminent MLB game of the week. Jon and Joe have set the standard for baseball telecasts over the last 19 years, and I look forward to being a member of their team."

~ Steve Phillips ~

Well Steve, we hope your baseball insight is a little better than your judgement of baseball announcing talent. Morgan and Miller are awful. Morgan tends to think he invented the game of baseball, and Miller makes watching a drop of water falling aimlessly from a kitchen faucet seem fascinating.

I can't remember the last time I watched (and listened to) a Sunday night game. I can see Joe Morgan stepping all over Steve Phillips's toes.
