I'll end the suspense. Cal Ripken and Tony Gwynn are joining the network as analysts.
Ripken will be the top studio analyst, paired with host Ernie Johnson, for the National League Division Series and Championship Series.
Gwynn will partner with play-by-play announcer Chip Caray on the No. 1 broadcast team. Then he'll eat Caray.
The more people I talk to, the less likely it appears that Ramon Hernandez will be ready to play in the Yankees series that begins Friday. If that's the case, put him on the disabled list and bring up another bat. One with a little pop.
Shameless plug alert: I'll resume my co-hosting gig on "The Anita Marks Show" tomorrow from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on ESPN Radio 1300 and the Mid-Atlantic Sports Network.
