Dick Enberg Honored With the Ford C. Frick Award

It probably won’t happen this way, but when Dick Enberg is introduced at the Hall of Fame as the 39th winner of the Ford C. Frick Award, the deejay should replay Curt Gowdy’s opening line from the baseball portion of “The Naked Gun”: “Hello! l’m Curt Gowdy, along with Jim Palmer, Tim McCarver, Dick Vitale, […]

5 MORE Seahawks who would be a better offensive coordinator than Darrell Bevell

This past Sunday, Seattle Seahawk players and fans were once again victimized by terrible play calling from offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell. Goal line fades on fourth down to a 5’9″ wide receiver? Under-using the best running back in the game? It was all there, and we’ve all seen it before. You may have already seen our list of four Seahawks who would make a better...

McCarver still analyzing Series, now from home

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) For more than a quarter-century Tim McCarver was as much a part of October baseball as champagne celebrations. On three networks, across four decades with four different play-by-play partners, McCarver was a near constant on the World Series soundtrack with his unique style as an analyst and familiar Tennessee twang. McCarver had been on the job for every World...

Real Tweets from Real People – America wants Tim McCarver back!

The 2014 World Series represented a little bit of history.  It was the first Fall Classic in 62 years (give or take a couple) that did not have Tim McCarver in the broadcast booth.  The longtime broadcaster retired from national duty and was replaced by two men, Harold Reynolds and Tom Verducci. The trio of Reynolds, Verducci, and Joe Buck called their first World Series game on...

The Silly Things You’ll Hear – A World Series Preview

Tonight the World Series between the Cinderella darlings, the Kansas City Royals, and the champions of even years, the San Francisco Giants, begins in Kansas City with coverage on FOX. While the viewers will finally be spared the inanity of Tim McCarver’s “baseball truisms” since he mercifully retired last year, you can bet that Joe Buck and Harold Reynolds will be sure to...

Philadelphia Phillies' collapse of 1964 still stings 50 years later

On July 1, the Milwaukee Brewers were atop the NL Central with a 6½-game lead. After Tuesday's loss at Cincinnati, Milwaukee is one loss or one San Francisco win away from being eliminated from playoff contention. The Brewers and Giants each have five games left. Back in July, this wasn't the way the Brewers pictured their season wrapping up. They fell out of first on Sept. 1 and...

Cardinals Wet The Bed, Again

Let’s start with the positive – 2:34 is a great length for a baseball game. The guillotine is less painful for everyone involved, I suppose. Beyond that? I don’t know what even the most generous Cardinals fans can say about this stinker. Carpenter, Holliday, Peralta, Taveras and Cruz all wore the collar. Adam Wainwright gave up a HR to a player who hadn’t cleared all four...

Tim McCarver shares story of Robin Williams' foul-ball 'catch' at first MLB game

There is no shortage of sadness across the country as people continue to remember the late Robin Williams, who died Monday at the age of 63. During the Cardinals' game Tuesday night in Miami, FOX Sports Midwest's broadcast duo of Dan McLaughlin and Tim McCarver were drumming up their favorite memories from Williams' terrific body of work.  And while most people were only able to...

Mixed results for Fox’s new A-team in first primetime showcase

Remember 12 months ago, when we were all shrugging, shaking our heads and murmuring “Oh, Grandpa” at Tim McCarver, reciting the lyrics to Metallica’s “Enter Sandman” in the 2013 MLB All-Star Game? Seems like forever ago, as McCarver — despite continuing to work — has sort of quickly faded out of the spotlight, doing little press since his semi-retirement. However, last...

MLB All-Star Game on Fox changes with technology, more cable

We’re a mere few days away to a week when the world stops for baseball. There are critics of the Major League Baseball All-Star Game, and mere disinterested bystanders, yet the game remains one of the highest, if not the highest-rated program of summer. It runs against very little competition, so I can’t see Fox moving it to cable anytime soon. Yes, Fox once again has the All...

Amadee Wohlschlaeger, Sports & Weatherbird Cartoonist Dies At 102

If you’ve lived in St. Louis at any point in the past century, you’re familiar with The Weatherbird. The Weatherbird debuted in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch in 1901 and has existed ever since. It remains the oldest continuously published daily cartoon today. You might not like the P-D. You might not read the paper anymore. But you know The Weatherbird. And probably like The Weatherbird...

Cardinals celebrate 50th anniversary of 1964 championship

ST. LOUIS -- Lou Brock remembered September 1964 as a time when the St. Louis Cardinals began a salary drive. That's also when they started their path to the World Series championship. Brock and Game 7 winner Bob Gibson were among members of the team that beat the Yankees who were honored Monday before St. Louis opened an interleague series against New York. A half-century ago,...

I know what Tim McCarver would say: This is just the kind of off-the-field controversy that baseball doesn't need.At his home in Miami, A-Rod probably owns a walk-in vat of Nair.A guy that dedicated to team policies would make a great captain.

McCarver returns to the booth -- and St. Louis -- tonight on FSMW

ST. LOUIS -- By late Monday night, everyone should be convinced about the future of Tim McCarver. He is not retiring. McCarver, 72, in fact, is scheduled to work more regular-season games in 2014 than in any recent year. He'll just be calling them for one team, the Cardinals, on a regional network, FOX Sports Midwest, as opposed to weekly on national FOX. Instead of sharing a booth...

Thus far this season, we have seen an iconic catch (Ichiro), a pine tar incident (Pineda) and a meltdown (Cabral.) Yesterday, we almost had a Bartman.

Happened in the ninth with Trout on second and Albert Pujols at bat. He hit a foul into the firstbase-line seats. Two fans fought with Teixeira. He couldn't catch it. If Pujols had then tied the game, we'd be sitting on four History Channel re-enactments - four! - and the month isn't even over.So, obviously, the Yankees are on a trajectory here. Pageant-style re-enactments of...

Rate the local MLB announcers – NL Central

The broadcast crews in the National League Central give me a feeling of adequacy. Nothing seems to stand out in either direction, but the division does have some national voices like Brian Anderson, Thom Brennaman, and Tim McCarver. Give each broadcast crew a rating, and if you have strong opinions in either direction, let us know in the comments.
