McCarver Cont'd: Will He Ever Stop?

courtesy nytimes.com

I couldn’t agree more about Mr. McCarver.  Between Chip Caray, Dane Cook, Scooter the Talking Baseball, and him, it makes October baseball nearly unwatchable.

So, when I heard that Mr. McCarver is only 68 years old, well…it shook me to the core.

Why is that a problem for me?  It’s a problem because he’s just too damn young.  No, I don’t want him to die.  And yes, I realize that 68 is not young in the grand scheme of things, but it’s certainly not old when it comes to baseball broadcasting.  These guys can last well beyond it, and often do.  After all, it’s not hard to talk sports and down glass after glass of whiskey, right? 

What 68 means to me is that Tim McCarver will be broadcasting October playoff baseball for at least another ten years, if not longer.

And that just sends shivers down my spine.

“If you leadoff and you play every day, you’re guaranteed to bat with the bases empty at least 162 times.”- Tim McCarver, July 8th, 2006

Brilliant.  Just brilliant.
