Jessica Mendoza isn’t meant for analyzing baseball…and it’s NOT BECAUSE SHE’S A GIRL! So let’s get over that story line right now.
She simply is boring and has zero insight.
If you didn’t know, Mendoza played softball at a very high level and was on two Olympic teams for the states. She also did some work broadcasting softball games for the four letter network. Fun Fact: she was actually good at broadcasting softball because she played it!
Every time the Red Sox are on Sunday Night Baseball I actually have to mute the TV to interrupt my frustrations. All she does is analyze things that are obvious. She tries to tell us that this pitch is a curveball because of the rotation and the batter missed the ball above it. She likes to mention David Price and how he’s such a GREAT teammate and basically praises Price while he’s pitching terrible and all I want is the ANALYST to ANALYZE why he sucks….IT’S NOT THAT HARD!
When they played the Yankees this past weekend, like clockwork, Price was pitching. All she did was give boring insight to his life. It’s not just me with these awful expectations either:
Lucky us, we all get Jess Mendoza tonight for Red Sox/Yankees. If we’re lucky maybe she’ll talk with David Price about his dog Astro!!!

Fast forward to the home run derby. Overall the broadcast team was bad and it actually made me miss Chris Berman screaming BACK BACK BACK BACK! Then there was Mendoza… All she did was gawk like a little school girl screaming “WOWWW” and “look at those guys reactions over there!”
Jess Mendoza sounds like a freshman college girl gawking over the Senior athletes her first day on campus

Now, you may be reading this and consider me a woman hater or that I’m only talking about this because she’s a woman….READ THE FIRST SENTENCE.
I’m writing this because she’s terrible at her job and I want Curt Schilling back.
Chalk Schill exit and Mendoza entrance as other MASSIVE failure to the file for ESPN.
