Sunday Sports Island–Monday Edition: Tim McCarver

If there is one good thing about baseball in the off-season it’s that we don’t have to subject ourselves to certain, unwanted things: your team sucking it up in the standings, a certain rivalry dominating the scene, and the horrendous “announcing” of one James Timothy McCarver. Granted FOX has its own issues with their cartoony graphics, the sloppy camera work, missing a pitch because they didn’t come back from a commercial fast enough and their love, LOVE for all things pinstripes. Hmm, how could they make it even more unbearable? Why, add the nonsensical musings of Tim McCarver, of course!

“So by guessing right you might have guessed wrong.”
“Mt. Everest erupts again!”
“Roy Oswalt is a drop and drive pitcher. What is a drop and drive pitcher? He is a guy who drops and drives. Very simple.”
“Sometimes a walk is better than a homerun.”

Ugh. It’s so painful to watch a game on FOX with this butt clown. I used to think that by the 7th inning I could hear the sloshing sound of scotch rolling in the highball he kept. But now I just think he’s an idiot. Who would pass their own teammate on the base path? An idiot. Not only that but he adds nothing of value to the commentary. And I’m no Joe Buck fan either, but it must be torture to have to directly deal with Timmy for 4+ hours. Look, I understand that it’s a national broadcast and maybe you have to dumb it down a bit for the casual fans. But I lose all intelligence after listening to him; my eyes glaze over, I drool on my shirt and “I’m gonna have a field of alfalfa for the rabbits…”

“And I get to tend the rabbits.”

Yes, after watching Tim McCarver, I feel as smart as Lennie from Of Mice and Men. Thanks Timmy.

It gets better. Timmy has his own music CD! Here’s his rendition of “There Used to Be a Ballpark”:



It’s hilariously bad. Timmy, you are not banished for your CD. You are banished for everything else.

Sing, sing a song, sing out loud, sing out strong..!
