    Peter Gammons to leave ESPN after winter meetings

    Surprising press release today: legendary journalist Peter Gammons will leave ESPN to pursue other endeavors after the Winter Meetings.

    Of all the people ESPN has had on their shows I really liked listening him and his insight. ESPN won't be the same

    That really sucks, he is by far the best part of their baseball team.

    I hope this isn't health related!

    Re: Peter Gammons to leave ESPN after winter meetings

    Gammons was great, but since he was hospitalized not too long ago, I think his reporting went downhill. I think his travel cut down, because he used to talk about a lot of different teams, but now it seems like he only talks about the Yankees and Red Sox.

    Still sad to see him go.

    And thank you Stumpy for this:

    ESPN didn't give him enough leeway to only talk about the Red Sox

    He's going to the MLB Network. ESPN will become irrelevant in Baseball now and try it's best to destroy it, just watch.

    I watch MLB network online right now. Not sure why Mediacom won't pick it up, they are willing to go on a sports tier.

    Excessive intake of alcohol, we all know, kills brain cells, but naturally it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers.

    I love having the MLB Network. I was always a fan of HR and he's an analyst.

    Gammons was the one shred of credibility ESPN had left. With Gammons gone it now will be only about the Yanks and Sox.

    They won't even bother. They have lost everything to MLB Network, Fox, TBS, and regional networks. ESPN will just shove more football down people's throat year round and abandon baseball all together.
