PLAYERS: Tim Mccarver
During Game 4 of the World Series on Sunday night, Tim McCarver did his best to attempt to make sense of the crazy obstruction call that ended Game 3 and gave the Cardinals a 2-1 series lead the previous night. Unfortunately for McCarver (and everyone listening), he really didn’t say anything at all but instead just talked in a big circle for nearly 30 whole seconds. Here’s a full transcription of his “explanation”: “A lotta rules that either imply directly or indirectly that umpires’ decisions, uh, often, or, an, an umpires’ judgement often, uh, it’s an umpire in this particular case thinks obstruction, a guy in, a guy obstructed and impeded a guy going to the next base, he could call it, otherwise, no call.” Okay, Tim…sure…whatever you say.

Tim McCarver Says Team That Goes To Boston Up 3-2 Has The Advantage

  It’s moments like this where you realize just how much you’re going to miss Tim McCarver once he hangs it up this year. McCarver gave this very McCarver-esque tidbit in the Fox’s ‘Keys to The Game’ segment during the World Series: “The team that goes to Boston with a 3-2 lead will have an advantage.” Classic. H/T: Awful Announcing

RIP Keys to the Game

In the words of Tim McCarver, "The team that goes to Boston with a 3-2 lead will have an advantage." Fox has a history of terrible/pointless Keys to the Game, but this is the pinnacle.  There's literally nowhere else to go from here.  Just retire Keys to the Game forever and scribble "W-I-N" in big bubble letters from now on.

Once the World Series ends, so will Tim McCarver's career at the network. And for those of us who work with him closely, the moment is difficult to accept.

Jessica Moran something to watch this World Series

Jessica Moran on Comcast Sports Net New England is definitely something worth watching this World Series. Given how much I, and most of America hates both teams. And of course hates their fan bases even more. not to mention there’s Tim McCarver, who’s unwatchable and unlistenable, I’m amazed the WS has drawn 13 million viewers to game 2. Again there is Jessica Moran though...
