Daron Sutton let go

Not sure.  But I just find it very odd that someone would include specific language saying "without incident" in a text/press release like that.  It's so awkward and sticks out!

Yep. Sounds like something that his reps would include.

Sutton is a good guy, but as I've come to understand, this is an issue regarding his faith, and his openness of it, and how it has affected his work relationships.  He's mentioned God on air a few times and uses faith specific vocabulary, and hasn't altered his approach to broadcasting, in spite of multiple warnings from producers. 

Make of that what you will, but I've been told this from a reliable source. 

I’m not religious and have never noticed this.

It’s like when @Taylor describes himself as the “not gay Angels fan”.

I guess Sutton had too much personality and charisma for the Angels? I haven't watched many games this year but he always seemed to bring it whenever Ohtani hit a bomb.

Definitely weird considering Gubi and Mota still have jobs. No one enjoys listening to them. Most either dislike or are indifferent.

Say what you will about Sutton's broadcast skills a mid season firing is shocking. Considering how long Mota and Gubi AND SMITH have hung on you'd think no matter how bad Sutton was he'd last at least through the season.

Gubi & Sutton turned into a total homer act. All Ohtani..all the time. I mean, it was gushing homerism.

Matt isn't the most unbias announcer either: "Get down! Get down!" - I mean - stop rooting.

I've been around since the days of Enberg, Drysdale, Bob Starr, etc....and. .IMO...Sutton was not the best. Maybe it's doing game in front of a monitor and not in person...but the team of Gubi & Sut / Matt have become somewhat unlistenable.

Never thought I'd miss Victor Rojas...but I do. 

for the life of me i will never understand why people don't want the in-house broadcast to openly be rooting for the team. it's not espn or fox or whatever, it's angels broadcast. so weird.

It was interpersonal relationships. 

Is that grounds for termination?

I've worked with a handful of people who were just a little too into Jesus before and aside from maybe a brief talking to from management I don't think anything ever came of it.

That’s weird because he isn’t new to this. 

Yes, I suppose it is. I actually didn't know his background when he came on board so he seemed like a pick out of the blue to me. Makes it even stranger to me that he has a background doing this and still couldn't speak well to the actual baseball stuff.

And Matt Vasgersian doesn't know what WAR is...

Hush you.  Vasgersian is still in early JeDi reverence amongst the cliquey nerds.

I just don't understand why this had to happen in the middle of the season, especially with no clear replacement plan moving forward.

Maybe there's more to it that explains it, but it just looks like a classless move by the Angels right now.
