David Justice, according to Richard Sandomir, sports media beat writer for The Times, will see his role diminish at the YES Network. According to Justice and YES Network officials, Justice will no longer be an in-studio analyst but will contribute to YESNetwork.com.
Justice had a rough end to 2007: His house was destroyed during the California fires, and his name appeared in the Mitchell Report. All of the involved parties say this changing role has nothing to do with the Mitchell Report and more to do with Justice’s desire to be at home while his family rebuilds their house. I have one thing to say about that: Hal-le Ber-ry. Clap clap clap clap clap.
