Last night on Sunday Night Baseball the sound feed from Houston went out. Joe Morgan and Jon Miller were suddenly mute. Blessedly mute. It was kind of nice. ESPN decided to put the ESPN Deportes feed through, and evidently asked Juan Marichal and Ernesto Jerez to announce in English. Marichal is very hard to understand in English. The flow of the patter was much worse in English than I am sure it is in Spanish. The insights were good, but haltingly delivered. These gentlemen had evidently been asked to switch languages mid-broadcast, and to switch away from their native language. They were having difficulty with the transition.

And they were still better than Joe Morgan.
