Giants Announcer Jon Miller & Former Giants Player Joe Morgan Not Returning To Sunday Night Baseball

Miller could stay on at ESPN to call radio, but neither of them will be calling the premier baseball game of the week anymore. Here's the official release.

Jon Miller and Joe Morgan's 21-year run on ESPN's "Sunday Night Baseball" is over.

Morgan's contract is expiring and he will not be renewed. Miller's contract is also expiring though he may remain at ESPN working the "Sunday Night Baseball" series and postseason baseball for ESPN Radio.

"Jon and Joe have contributed greatly to the success of 'Sunday Night Baseball' for the past 21 seasons," ESPN executive vice president Norby Williams said in a statement Monday. "Over the last two decades, Joe went from Hall of Fame player to one of his sport's top analysts and Jon's Hall of Fame voice and tremendous knowledge of the game have connected with baseball fans everywhere. We owe them our deepest thanks for an outstanding body of work."

While I'm sure few people will miss Joe (especially these guys), Jon Miller's voice still remains as crisp and as suited for baseball as it did when he started over three decades ago. Hopefully this means he'll get to announce more Giants games!

Check him out at the World Series celebration after the jump.

Jeff Sullivan at SB Nation says firing Miller and Morgan is only part of the problem.

But it's important for these people to keep one thing in mind - Joe Morgan isn't the enemy. Joe Morgan may be the enemy's most visible representative, but remember that FJM didn't only rip Morgan's words to pieces. It ripped to pieces the words of countless other athletes and writers as well, and it is this rampant anti-intellectualism - not an aging Hall of Fame second baseman - that stands as the true evil. An evil that lives and breathes to this day.
