Report: Comcast SportsNet will hire Jamie Moyer and Matt Stairs to join the broadcast booth
This confirms rumors that have been swirling over the past two weeks. CSN initially sought one candidate to replace both Chris Wheeler and Gary Matthews, but were apparently impressed by Stairs and Moyer during their interviews enough to hire both.
It remains to be seen how the booth will be arranged — if Tom McCarthy, Moyer, and Stairs will call all nine innings together, or if there will be a timeshare not unlike the arrangement with Wheeler and Matthews.
As a spectator, the 2014 season should be interesting, seeing how the two new additions handle life in the booth and what kind of insight they provide on a daily basis. Moyer seems like he would be some straight, level-headed analysis, while Stairs seems like he would provide more anecdotal entertainment.
CSN announces Moyer and Stairs. Say each will broadcast over 100 games, including more than 30 together.
