ESPN analyst Rick Sutcliffe had been partying with buddy Bill Murray when he stopped by the TV booth during a May Brewers-Padres game this season. Sutcliffe then went on a rambling, booze-slurred rant before the plug was finally pulled on his microphone. At one point Sutcliffe asked Padres announcer Matt Vasgersian, ''Matty, what are you still doing here in San Diego?" Vasgersian tried to change the subject, but Sutcliffe persisted. "No, no, no, Matty, everybody on Earth has been trying to steal you -- the Dodgers, the Cubs, ESPN. What are you still doing here?" ESPN suspended him for one game.
