It's funny....but McCarver may actually be more palatable with that voice than his usual drivel. Regardless I boycott Fox Saturday baseball because of the blackouts to the rest of baseball. With so many channels with carriers like Directv and comcast they could broadcast the Fox regional games wherever they want, and get the ad revenue from all the broadcasts.

Down here in south Florida I get the Yankees, Mets or Red Sox EVERY Saturday.:bs:

McCarver and Buck drive me to the edge. The mute button is a beautiful thing.

We get all kinds of random crap here in MI. Last week, it was TB-Min, even if the Sox game hadn't been delayed. How is that regional coverage? There have been so many times in the last decade when local stations picked a completely meaningless game of far away teams over the Sox.

I still fail to understand how Fox restricting their product on Saturdays so that people can't see the games they want to see helps them or baseball or fans or anyone.

Joe Buck can actually be funny in a lot of their commercials.

The TV marketplace for MLB is absurd. They constantly throw attendance records out there to justify it, but nobody can deny that they do an awful job of promoting the game.
