Stop the Presses! Doug Glanville to Join ESPN!

Ladies and gentlemen, it is a glorious day in the land of baseball media. Yeah, the one, the only, the patron saint of this here blog, Doug Glanville, is joining ESPN. Take it away fuckthemets:

Former Phillies outfielder (and one of my favorite Phillies of all time) Doug Glanville has just been announced as the latest MLB vet to join ESPN as a baseball analyst, per an ESPN press release. Glanville will contribute to Baseball Tonight, and ESPN: The Magazine, starting later this month. He offers instant credibility to the network as he is 4x better than the last four ex-MLBers to be hired; Nomar Garciaparra, Aaron Boone, J.P. Ricciardi (thanks again!), and Bobby Valentine. What a bunch of BITCHES!

Not only is Dougie Fresh an ex-player, but he served on the Executive Subcommittee of the Major League Baseball Players Association while playing. And in the past few years, he was an Op-Extra columnist for The New York Times. He has a book coming out, The Game from Where I Stand – A Ballplayer’s Inside View, to be released in early May.

ESPN's baseball coverage just got 8,000 times better. The only problem I have with any of this is that ESPN did not provide me with the aforementioned press release. My site is named after the guy. Thankfully, The Fightins were all over it, which reminds me, cast your vote for meech and company to take down the formidable and excellent Beerleaguer.

BallHype: hype it up!
