Peter Gammons officially said goodbye to ESPN.
I see this only as a positive. With the introduction of the MLB Network last year, the only reason I watch ESPN now is for the actual games.
I have no use for a network that is so hungry for ratings and total market domination that they have forgone sports journalism for TMZ.com and Entertainment Tonight.
I don’t care about breaking developments in the Tiger Woods Saga. I want highlights, and injury news, and information related to what happens on the field.
I am not dumb enough to not know that this crap gets ratings, otherwise they wouldn’t do it.
But I don’t have to watch it.
So good for you Peter.
I was in Fenway days after his life threatening anurism. The place went crazy when they announced he was going to be ok.
Peter has been the reason I have watched Baseball Tonight for going on 10 years. I am excited to see what he choses to do in his life after ESPN.
