    As an off-shoot, what's the word with Dr. Z? He had a stroke months ago, but haven't heard any updates.

    ESPN should put a permanent camera in Peter Gammons' living room and allow him to chime in with his opinion while wrapped in a Red Sox Snuggie.

    I realize they've got a good stable of guys to turn to, but I'm curious who they'll "replace" him with. Does this mean more airtime for their blogging crew?

    Sad, sad day at ESPN.

    Buster Olney has been groomed for that spot, I would think.

    Yeah, but he's never shagged flies with the Sawx or bawled when Jeff Bagwell was traded.

    They don't already?

    I totally agree, but I'm acting under the assumption that they still need to add someone to the TV crew since they're losing one.

    I'm glad Buster has grown into his TV gig well. I remember when he first started in 2003 and was an absolute trainwreck on Baseball Tonight. Will still miss Gammons, who always seemed to comfortable and on-the-spot.

    At 64 years old and with that stroke not that far behind him, will his "new endeavors" include retirement?

    It doesn't sound like Gammons is retiring. I'm guessing MLB Network/.com with fewer hours than ESPN.
    I hope ESPN doesn't feel the need to add another person. They have plenty of capable people who can fill Gammons air time, though not his shoes.
