Joe Buck will no longer be in the broadcast booth for the St. Louis Cardinals. He is devoting more time to Fox Sports and family. This ends the Buck family's professional association with the Cardinals which started in 1954 with Jack Buck's first season as a broadcaster. With his workload at Fox Sports, Buck had been doing a limited number of Redbird games over the past few seasons.

St. Louis' loss is the nation's loss.

Still I would rather have Joe Buck announce the winner of the 2008 AL Pennant than Chip Carey.

They got tired of hearing him constantly say:

"Wow, it's odd not seeing "Big Papi's" name on the lineup card!"

Ugh, I so wish the decision was the other way around!

Either one is a major insult

The net result is terrible for the most part.

Wow!!

Honestly, I always liked Joe Buck for either baseball or football. I like his style. It's also typical that anyone's ego at that level of broadcasting or anything else is going to be sizable.

(Harry Caray and Jimmy Peirsall, who White Sox fans idolize on these boards, could have had even bigger egos than Joe Buck - so what's the big deal? If any of us has a great amount of success doing something, our egos would grow pretty large. The greatest challenge would be to have a modest attitude in the midst of all that stufff. Let's be honest.)



:cool:

He doesn't fit into the Cardinals plans because he isn't a former/current steroid/HGH user.

Harry and Jimmy could call a game, something Joe Buck is incapable of doing adequately, whether it is football or baseball, he is really lost

So he goes from 10 STL games to none, and he'll probably do the same number of national games as he did last year.

Net result: positive.

Givem me Buck all day all night over that Berman crap we got in ALDS.

Not a big fan of Buck in the NFL either.

Joe Buck and Chip Caray are almost essentially the same person, it seems to me anyway. Both are annoying.

My favorite is Verne Lundquist. The event comes first. He's there with the right call, never overplays his hand, down to earth.

Yes, sir!

Nor is he willing to take a fungo bat to anyone who would ask about them.

Meh. I don't watch Cardinals baseball anyway, so good luck to him.

As far as the best National Announcer? I've always like Al Michaels. Jim Nance if fine. Bob Costas is awesome for studio work, not so much on live calls.

I love how CBS made a 'Best of Gus Johnson' YouTube video, and then proceeded to reduce his game workload http://youtube.com/watch?v=WWdjhRaVQ74&feature=related
