Tim McCarver To Call More Games In ’15; Dan Caesar So Happy

Chicken noodle soup when you have a cold. An electric blanket the first night of winter. A lover’s touch after a challenging day at the office. The things that we take comfort with in life are varied, but the feelings are not – the shared humanity is what makes humans bond. The soul is bathed in happiness and dried with gaiety. With this brutal winter ceasing to abate, we ...

When it comes to base-running, the Cardinals have plenty of room to improve

ST. LOUIS -- If the Cardinals want to score more runs this season, all they have to do is hit more homers. Obvious, isn't it? They hit only 105 last year, the fewest in the National League and the fewest by a Cardinals team since 1992. With the additions of Jason Heyward and Mark Reynolds, plus an added year of experience for Matt Adams and Kolten Wong, the Cardinals should hit more...

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...

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...

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...
