    Breaking News....McCarver is an idiot

    From the commentary I just heard in the 8th inning, it is a great athletic move to miss a line drive and fall on your a$$. How does this moron have a job and why does Fox continue to hire him. Worthless.

    Sorry, this is NOT breaking news.

    It is a long-established fact.

    this was not McCarver's first offense...
    "On-base percentage is great if you can score runs and do something with that on-base percentage," Baker said. "Clogging up the bases isn't that great to me."

    Yep, and I found this little gem on there.

    The Tim McCarver quote of the year:

    "If you leadoff and you play every day, you're guaranteed to bat with the bases empty at least 162 times." - July 8th, 2006
    If you can't build a winning team with that core a fire-sale isn't the solution. Selling the franchise, moving them to Nashville and converting GABP into a used car lot is.

    In game three or four of the NLCS against Pittsburgh, he ripped Pinella for a double switch that he claimed might backfire three innings later. He kept talking about it all game. Would not shut up about it.
    Of course, he was wrong about it and Pinella took a shot at him in the post game interview.

    However, the best (worst) McCarver comment came back when he was doing Monday Night baseball for ABC. He said to start off the game, (paraphrasing)
    "Over the stadium is the GoodYear blimp, which is ironic, because Dwight Gooden is pitching and he has had a good year."
    Not just a groaner, but the wrong use of ironic.

    I think my favorite McCarver moment (yes, I have ONE), was when Deion gave him the gatorade shower. Other than that, I've been watching the WS pretty much on mute.

    Yes McCarver is an idiot...but thats not a bad observation for a commentator to make. If put in an intelligent conversation (ex. why leadoff guys RBIs are low, or why it is impressive for a certain leadoff guy to have a ton of ribbies) and in the right context it is an excellent point. Astute fans already know this of course. Realize, we are living in a country that needs the overtime rules of college football hashed out for us each and every game.
