Found October 28, 2013 on Awful Announcing:
PLAYERS: Tim Mccarver
TEAMS: Boston Red Sox
This is Tim McCarver's last World Series for Fox and the career retrospectives have been flowing this week.  With just a couple games left in his lengthy baseball announcing career, we just have to feature one more McCarverism from the longtime Fox analyst. Here's McCarver trying to explain the obstruction rule that resulted in the Cardinals winning Game 3 on Saturday night during Game 4.  Once you listen the first time, play it backwards and see if there might be any hidden messages that actually sync to Dark Side of the Moon: Crystal clear.  That wasn't all though.  Readers tweeted us the following quotes from McCarver from Game 4 of the World Series... "This Red Sox team is teeming with team players." "Outfield in a no-doubles defense. The strategy is to prevent the double." "Catch it before it hits the ground." Great advice for any aspiring young baseball players out there watching the World Series, if in fact there are any aspiring young baseball players watching the World Series instead of football or The Walking Dead. "Every time he shakes his head yes or no, he throws a fastball." "As leaves change in New England, so does the score." Tim McCarver's going to write a book of poetry when he retires, isn't he?

Tim McCarver Trying To Explain Game 3′s Obstruction Call Is A Guaranteed Headache

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...

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.

McCarver's exit a loss for baseball

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.

With Leather’s Watch This: The World Series Is A Lot More Exciting En Espanol

I don’t like to be one of those guys who pours it on poor, old Tim McCarver too much for his interesting analysis during the Major League Baseball playoffs and especially the World Series. But the dude’s been meandering well beyond the ordinary during this World Series, as he keeps cutting off Joe Buck in the middle of analytical diatribes that contain actual facts and insight...
