You're Joe Morgan. You don't know anything about newfangled baseball statistics, you don't care to learn, and frankly, you mostly stay away from talking about them when you're commenting on a game. Fine.
But at least be knowledgeable about the strengths and weaknesses of the players you're watching. Don't say stuff like this:Damon doesn't have the strong arm anymore.
Johnny Damon never, never, never
had anything close to resembling even an average arm. He's a fairly famous player who in recent years has manned center field for the two marquee teams in baseball. He had dumb hair, even dumber facial hair, he wrote a book, he went on Letterman, he had an attention-whoring wife. This is not an obscure September call-up. It's Johnny Fitzgerald Nitro Damon we're talking about here.
If you're Joe Morgan, isn't it your responsibility to know something, anything
