Tim McCarver update


Tim has not lived down to his normal standards this year. That, coupled with the fact that he was covering the American League (which means I didn't see much of him), means the TimMcCarver contest is somewhat of a let down.

In last night's game he did have a classic with his: "We might see him throw down a bunt here" only to watch the batter wildly swing at the pitch. "Or he might swing away" Joe Buck responded.

There was also a bit in game seven in NY where they cut down to the field with Chris Myers (What the hell did Chris do to end up as the 4 man, incidentally?). Myers did a little bit about how only two teams in the history of sport had come from a 3-0 deficit to win a best of 7 series and both of them were in hockey. It had never been done in baseball before. Back up to the booth.

Then McCarver says (I paraphrase): What Chris didn't tell you is that it has never been done in baseball before. Both times it has happened have been in hockey.

Bravo, Tim.
