Alex Rodriguez could get his own version of ‘The Manningcast’ as ESPN shakes up baseball coverage

If you ever watched “The Manningcast” and thought, “I would love a baseball version of this, but with a much less charismatic host,” ESPN has the show for you. The network is considering giving Alex Rodriguez his own Manningcast-style program in an attempt to freshen up its “Sunday Night Baseball” booth, according to Andrew Marchand of the New York Post.

If those changes are made, Rodriguez would leave “Sunday Night Baseball.” ESPN is reportedly looking at a booth consisting of Karl Ravech doing play-by-play and Eduardo Perez and former New York Yankees pitcher David Cone doing analysis.


Ravech and Perez are regular broadcasters at ESPN. The network reportedly tried to hire Cone in the past, and apparently still have interest in bringing him on board.

Matt Vasgersian leaving ESPN’s ‘Sunday Night Baseball’ booth

Play-by-player Matt Vasgersian informed ESPN executives that he is leaving his position on “Sunday Night Baseball,” The Post has learned.

After four years teamed with Alex Rodriguez, Vasgersian wants to focus on new, pending deals with MLB Network, and potentially expand his work on Angels’ regional telecasts.

“I decided to call it a wrap on ‘Sunday Night Baseball,’” Vasgersian said when reached by The Post. “I can’t do everything I enjoy with MLB Network and the Angels, while still being away for nearly 30 weekends a year.”
