Default Final Season for Tim McCarver on FOX

MLB Public Relations
Quote from Commissioner Selig on Tim McCarver, who will step down at the end of this season as lead analyst.

"Tim McCarver has chronicled the national pastime on our biggest stages, including a record 23 World Series and 20 All-Star Games, for a generation of baseball fans. As an analyst, he has always thought like a manager in the dugout, and in the process he helped redefine what sports fans expected from the broadcast booth. Tim has led a remarkable baseball life since signing with the Cardinals in 1959, and all of us at Major League Baseball look forward to joining our partners at FOX Sports in honoring his Hall of Fame career throughout the 2013 season. On behalf of our 30 Clubs, I thank Tim for his important contributions to our game over the past seven decades.

Thank Christ.

I don't complain about announcers much, but this man makes things absolutely unwatchable. He's easily #1 in my worst announcer club.

I never get tired of hearing that.

Baseball announcing must be the only portion of the entertainment industry that almost encourages people to stay way past their prime. It's a badge of honor for these folks to die with their boots on.

Let's see...you get paid very well, have first class travel, stay in the best hotels and watch a game every night.

Can't imagine why guys would want to keep doing it.

But do you trust FOX to hire someone new that isn't terrible?

Agreed. But for me, the stupid graphics and the between inning shots of preening "stars" of the Fox new fall show in their playoff gear for the home team have to go too.

"Greg Maddux doesn't walk many people because he's always around the plate."

"Tom Glavine likes to pitch outside, which means he locates pitches on the outer-half when facing right-handed hitters."

"Ryan Howard has tremendous power to the opposite field, which is left field."

"He walked the batter on the fourth ball."

"The third strike was the pitch that got him."

Steiner would be a great replacement. It would never happen though.

Of course not. It makes too much sense.

Maybe they'll hire Frank.

"If John Olerud throws with his left hand, he catches with his right hand."

Tim has always overstated the obvious.
