As long as Buck steps aside and takes McCarver with him, I'd be ecstatic.

I'd pay to have them keep McCarver in the booth, just on the off chance that Scully slaps him on live television.

Let Vin go back to where he belongs. He's as strong now as he's ever been.

A couple of years ago he worked a rare road series at Fenway for Prime Ticket.

Nine innings by himself and no help from the truck - he is that prepared.

Just tonight a bad call by an ump and he said - Umpires are human - aren't we all.

He must be heartsick about McCourt.

Can Fox just lose the contract and make his "magnanimous gesture" a moot point and make him go away forever?

PLEASE let NBC get baseball again.

I would love to see Scully slap McCarver. That would be awesome.

"This pimpslap brought to you by Farmer John's meats. The official hot dogs of the Los Angeles Dodgers."

I would love to hear Scully on the air doing the Series. Scully was one of the reasons why I had the MLB package.

Please make this happen!!!

Bucks calls of the Konerko GS and Scotty Pods walk off in Game 2 were the the dryest calls I've ever heard in my life. I've hated him since that game.

Let this happen, and also bring back Garagiola back to do color. That would be fun to see.

Vin prefers to broadcast alone.

I would actually tune in - regardless of who is playing.

Bring back the class for MLB national broadcasts. Although I don't miss Morgan, I sure do miss Miller. I'd love to hear Scully do the World Series.

Let Scully, Kubek and Garagiola do it for old time sake. (I dont know if Kubek or Garagiola are in good enough shape though)

I think Joe still does some broadcast work for Arizona.

I read some sad things about Kubek recently that makes me think he couldn't be involved.

Just about anyone other than Joe Buck and Tim McCarver for the World Series would be fine with me. They both really bring the Fall Classic down.

I got really excited when I thought the thread title was 'Joe buck offers to step aside permanently' until I actually went into the thread. Better than nothing at least. If that means Tim McCarver is nowhere near a microphone then we really have a positive situation.

And while we are at it let's not show WS games on Fox anymore. Any other network will be just fine.

It seems odd that Fox spent so much money for the rights to do baseball an yet shows it so little respect while doing little to promote it.

NBC understood the rhythms and flow of the game. It was important to them, it was a part of their identity and they respected it and the partnership as such.

To Fox, baseball is just another vehicle to cross promote some reality show or another animated show on Sunday....nothing more, nothing less.

MLB broadcasts have just not been the same since it left NBC. It seemed liked the announcers were a little more baseball savvy instead of all of the fluff that you get today. It's a dog gone shame is what it is.

Yes, that's right. He fills in as the color analyst a few times a year. These day, personally, I don't think he's very good.
