Topic - Dennis Eckersley
Turner Sports said Wednesday that Keith Olbermann will team with Hall of Fame pitcher Dennis Eckersley on its studio show during the baseball playoffs this October. It’s a familiar role and corporate home for Olbermann, who hosted baseball postseason shows on NBC and Fox in the late 1990s and began his on-air career as a sports reporter for CNN, another Turner network.
Asked about Mariano Rivera, Doug Mientkiewicz knows he never got a hit off the New York Yankees' great closer. He's glad to find out he's not alone.
Dennis Eckersley, one of the few to enjoy sustained success as a starter and a reliever, said those who can handle the "adrenaline rush" of the pace of the bullpen can be better than people imagined.
Even as he saw how it worked for him, Eckersley said thoughts of starting again were never far away.
