Jon Miller Proves He’s Still Bitter at ESPN with Dave Van Horne Congrats

When a person is fired after 20 years of service, they can have a number of different reactions. Sometimes that person will thank their former employer for allowing them to be a part of something for such a long time. Other times they will feel like they have graduated from the company and look back on their time with a positive mindset, regardless of the ending. And on many occasions, the canned employee will hold a grudge.

As you may have guessed, Jon Miller falls under the category of grudge-holder.  The Jorge Sedano Show on 790 The Ticket (WAXY-AM) recently put together a montage praising Dave Van Horne for being given the Ford C. Frick Award — an annual award from the National Baseball Hall of Fame given to a broadcaster for “major contributions to baseball.”  Having won the award in the past, Miller gave Van Horne an awkward congratulations while taking shots at ESPN.  Here’s the hilarious audio:

Glad to see Jon is no longer upset with ESPN for letting him go.  Also glad to see he doesn’t let his feelings get in the way of congratulating a fellow award winner.  If he used someone else’s special moment as an opportunity to take a shot at his old boss, that would be messed up.  At least he was professional about it.

    Miller has a right to be upset here. He’s one of the best play-by-play guys in the country. He went down because his partner, Joe Morgan, sucked.

    Miller’s one of the best and unfortunately had to put up with Morgan and his lying about himself on the air.
