Harold Reynolds poised to move to Fox?Credit: MLB NetworkFox Sports is moving quickly to name a replacement to the retiring Tim McCarver as the color analyst in the primary baseball booth next to their ace play-by-play Joe Buck. Reports surface at the end of the regular season (via Sports Illustrated’s Richard Deitsch) that MLB Network’ studio and broadcast booth veteran Harold Reynolds, Sports Illustrated (and MLB Network) analyst Tom Verducci, and TBS playoff color analyst John Smoltz were on the short list. According to Chad Finn of the Boston Globe, a decision has been reached behind the scenes to name Reynolds as “the guy”. Harold Reynolds is an 18-year veteran of the broadcast business, starting with ESPN, then after an apparent sexual harassment issue, with TBS and MLB Network. The sexual harassment situation occurred in 2006 with three ESPN employees alleging Reynolds acted inappropriately toward them (according to AP wire reports). Reynolds enjoyed a 12-year playing career primarily with the Seattle Mariners, being named to two All-Star Games, winning 3 Gold Gloves, and stealing 250 bases. Fox has an interesting decision on their hands, do they go with a veteran play-by-play caller who has booth experience, or someone with more studio and analysis like Reynolds? I think Reynolds certainly has the baseball knowledge, but I question whether he has the timing and cadence to work in this analysis during a game, a skill that takes practice of being in the booth 162 nights a year for a decade or more. Tim McCarver retires after working alongside Joe Buck for 18 years. McCarver was electhe broadcaster’s wing of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and has won six Emmy awards in sports broadcasting. - David Whitlock Related Stories: Top Five candidates to replace Tim McCarver Be sure to like our Facebook Page Or follow us on Twitter - David Whitlock Follow @lhd_on_sports - Blog Follow @RBTS_baseball - Sports-Kings Follow @realsportskings The post Report: Fox to name Harold Reynolds as replacement for Tim McCarver appeared first on Reading Between The Seams.
