BEST OF MAXIM
For our sanity, let's just pretend that Tim McCarver is in on this joke referencing Barry Manilow as the most famous Barry to play in San Francisco's AT&T Park and not a sign that he's slowly losing his mind. To McCarver's credit, it's true, Barry Manilow did play at AT&T Park in 2007 and the fans apparenty did chant "Barry, Barry!" Who doesn...
When I think of people that would be in line to criticize MLB on Fox analyst Tim McCarver, plenty of individuals immediately come to mind (including the entire staff of this site). But one name I never would have pinned was legendary CBC hockey commentator Don Cherry. Cherry took issue with McCarver on his Twitter page (yes, Don Cherry tweets too!) because he jinxed Ryan Vogelsong...
Tim McCarver is a professional, and even sometimes professionals are allowed to make a mistake every now and then. On Wednesday night during Game 1 of the World Series between the San Francisco Giants and the Detroit Tigers McCarver may have made a mistake, or one of the best jokes we have heard in a while. Either way we love the guy and he played it off with a big laugh. Our...
Joe Buck took some time off from being a mediocre broadcaster to spend some time photobombing. I guess I am going to watch the World Series tonight even thought I have zero interest in it. My feeling is MLB is anticipating a hit in ratings. Either way, Joe Buck isn’t going to make it better.
If Ben Franklin were alive today, he’d probably smell awful and he’d have to agree that three things are certain in life – death, taxes and people hating ol’ biased Joe Buck. Sure enough, baseball fans complained to the highest heavens and lowest hells about his alleged love for the St. Louis Cardinals during last year’s World Series, and they absolutely ******* and moaned...
One of the great all-time World Series performances was turned in last night in San Francisco. A performance that will go down in the ages and be remembered for generations and generations to come. We will tell our grandchildren, who will tell their grandchildren, who will tell their grandchildren about Game 1 of the 2012 World Series because of the heroics of this...
It is October and the Phillies are not playing baseball. So what did I do in response to this devastating turn of events? I fled the country. Seriously. I recently returned from a 2-week excursion to a variety of places including Italy, Egypt, Greece and Israel. If anyone else out there is totally bummed out by the end of the baseball season, I highly recommend this adventure :O...
I almost spit my beer all over the living room last night when I heard the latest and dumbest installment of what Tim McCarver calls baseball play-by-play.
Full disclosure, I can't stand McCarver, he almost makes me sick to my stomach. He's terrible at his job, dropping insightful bombs over the years like, "Booing can be good," and "a change-up is a pitch...
Forget for one moment that Barry Bonds is the poster-child for PEDs. He is probably the most well-known San Francisco Giants player of all-time, outside of Willie Mays. Okay, now add back the whole steroids narrative. Barry Bonds is the … Continue reading →
We are bridging seasons on this week’s edition of Sports Media Weekly. Ken Fang of Fang’s Bites and I begin the show with a preview of the final baseball event of the year, the World Series, which will see Joe Buck and Tim McCarver call their 15th Fall Classic as a team for Fox Sports.

Those watching Game 1 of the World Series in San Francisco on Wednesday night likely heard chants of, "Barry! Barry! Barry!," yet Barry Bonds was nowhere to be found.
The chant instead reigned down at AT&T Park because Barry Zito -- whose $126 million contract has paid for six lackluster seasons in the Bay Area thus far -- twirled 5 2/3 solid innings...
San Francisco Giants pitcher Barry Zito has been pitching pretty well in the postseason. So well in fact that fans are taking notice despite a rough go of it for him in recent seasons. They let their feelings be shown with a good round of "Barry!" chants during Wednesday's Game One of the World Series at AT&T Park.The crowd was reacting to a run-scoring single by...
