Funny stuff via the MLB Fan Cave– in which Jays fan April Whitzman is still going strong, having made it as one of the final three cave dwellers, and heading to the World Series live– as they got Jays radio man, and almost Hall-of-Famer Jack Morris to do some riffing on the similarities between his name and that of a fictional character on an unwatchable early-1990s kids show.
Obviously Morris is being a good sport here– he’s certainly not being much of an actor. HEYO! But it’s endearing, as was his analysis during Jays radio broadcasts this season. (See what I did there?)
Sure, there was maybe a little too much drum beating for the pitch-to-the-score concept that is so crucial to his legacy, and some old school ideas that clash a bit with the modern game, but generally he’s been far, far better– for me, at least– than ever expected. Not that we’d set the bar very high, given some of the bristling we’d heard from Twins fans about him, but still, I really do have to admit that he was a very good addition to the broadcast team, and a worthy replacement for ol’ Buns Ashby.
