Jon Miller...Oops

Found this one from AwfulAnouncing.com. Longtime ESPN baseball broadcaster Jon Miller mixes up the Lee’s: Derek and Carlos. No big deal….until he tries to apologize:

Well, during the commercial break, someone on ESPN’s crack production squad must have told Miller that Carlos Lee doesn’t play for the Cubs and that Derrek Lee is the Cubs’ first baseman, so he issued a “correction” (again, paraphrased) …

"Folks, before the break, I misidentified the Cubs first baseman, Derrek Lee, as being Carlos Lee. Carlos Lee plays up in Milwaukee, where he signed a big long-term contract over the offseason."

Um. OK then…thanks for clearing that up?

Apparently my neighbor doesn't know either, he has a huge head of a caballo with numero 45 on it right in his window. I get a little chuckle out of it every now and then.

I blame Ned Yost for this.

I praise Ned Yost for ESPN's great baseball coverage. And for the delicious sandwich I just had. Ned is a God.

Sounds like he was channeling Harry Carry.

Jon Morgan and Joe Miller are a great announcing team.
