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.
"Everybody knows about Mariano Rivera. He's one the biggest names in the game, maybe the greatest postseason pitcher," Eckersley said. "I think there's probably players in awe of him that played against him. They're OK with him striking them out. You can talk all you want about one pitch or whatever they say, but to be able to put it where he wants to, with all that adrenaline, is beyond me."
"Wow! Baseball writers make a statement," Hall of Fame reliever Dennis Eckersley wrote on Twitter. "Feels right."
