“I’ve called him the Magic Johnson of our game for over a decade,” he says. Each time he pointed both index fingers to the sky after a home run, he was pointing to her.“Sometimes one of the things that people hate is you being the best at something,” he says. “He’s a guy that works extremely hard at what he does.

Improbably, it turns out that his polished and studied manner, which often played terribly in clubhouses—particularly opposing ones—has made him a star in the medium, with an approval rating he never approached on the diamond.Formulating coherent and analytical—and, ideally, non-profane—soundbites in front of 19 million viewers, in his second language, was an entirely new challenge. ” he shouted on his first day of work as he wandered near the loading docks of Fox’s expansive studios in Los Angeles, until Bardia Shah-Rais, Fox Sports’s coordinating producer, found him.
