Jimmy Rollins may have found his job after baseball, he’s been doing pre-game analysis for Fox Sports for the World Series, among other duties for Fox, and maybe he’s found his niche after his playing days are over.
Last night, Rollins predicted on the show that the Boston Red Sox would take the next step to winning the World Series, but that’s not quite the way it happened. You probably had to think that because of the huge victory that the Red Sox had in Game 1. That’s baseball though, it’s not easy to figure out.
Rollins is clear and eloquent when he speaks, and he doesn’t really try to go to great lengths to be that way. There is another former player that has had a very long career doing announcing for baseball games, and that of course is Joe Morgan. Morgan was a perennial superstar in his playing days, but when the new generations came along, they primarily know him as a baseball announcer, and he’s very good at it. Rollins has the same character in the broadcasts as many other successful announcers.
