Tim McCarver to call Cardinals games

Tim McCarver promised us throughout his final season as the lead analyst for MLB on Fox that he would not be retiring, rather, just stepping away from his position in Fox's #1 broadcast booth. He is close to officially keeping that promise.  The longtime baseball analyst will call 30 St. Louis Cardinals games on Fox Sports Midwest in 2014 according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch...

Video: Tim McCarver signs off

With the Red Sox winning the World Series last night in Game 6, that meant it was the last time we'll see Tim McCarver in the booth calling the World Series.  After a record 24th World Series, here's how McCarver and Fox said goodbye after the game.  Whatever you think of him now, it is a very nice farewell.  McCarver's longevity and ability to predict things before...

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...

Former Phillies Catcher, Broadcaster Tim McCarver Will Retire From Fox

Yankeetorial: Tim McCarver is retiring, and only one man should be considered for his replacement

Today, the baseball world was stunned to hear that Tim McCarver, at only 71, plans to hang up his vocal chords at year's end. Clearly, the man has another 20 years of anti-Yankee bile-spewing left inside his spiteful, tortured spleen.We've written much about McCarver's lustful, death-to-all-Yankees diatribes, which rise up from the man's soul on an inning-by-inning...

Tim McCarver Drops Barry Manilow Reference Instead of Barry Bonds, Still Was Correct

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...

Tim McCarver honors Barry Manilow's great San Francisco career

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...

Well played... Well.  Played.  In all seriousness, Tim McCarver deserves the honor for his body of...
