When the Sunday Night Baseball booth team of Jon Miller and Joe Morgan were sacked recently after 21 years, Morgan was, in baseball parlance, given his unconditional release. Miller was outrighted to the minors, with an offer to continue to work with ESPN on the radio side.
Miller has refused the assignment and elected free agency. Miller told the San Jose Mercury News he'll work calling Giants games full-time for the first time since joining the team in 1997. He previously had missed most weekend games.
"I appreciated [ESPN's] offer, but ultimately after talking with my wife and my family, the best thing for me and for all of us was to just do the Giants,'' he said.
