Great news, but not effective until after this season? What, this pompous ass needs a farewell tour all over MLB all summer? Seriously nauseating.

Another year of watching with the sound down whenever the game is on Fox.

What this retirement means is, that he will no longer work as a broadcaster.

I say replace him with Al Leiter. Love the Springsteen references.

For some reason I suspect Fox is going to hire Joe Morgan.

I hope not. He's not much better, although I wouldn't mind terribly if he were teamed with Jon Miller again. They worked well together on Sunday Night Baseball for so many seasons, and would be a nice facelift to the awful broadcasting of Fox.

Vin Scully is still infinitely better than McCarver.

My seven year old daughter would be infinitely better than McCarver.

I thought McCarver was done, but he's doing a game on MLB Network right now. I think it might be the Cardinals local Fox feed, unless he's working directly for MLB and they're just using the Cardinals video feed.

"In his thirty years behind the mike, Tim McCarver has called pitches outside the strike zone balls, pitches inside the zone strikes, balls that went over the fence home runs, pitchers who came on in relief relievers, hitters who batted for someone else pinch-hitters and guys like Tony LaRussa managers. Not one of the subtle nuances of this great game ever escaped his attention. He will be missed, which means he will no longer be there."

I was living in Knoxville when Tennessee beat Florida State in the Fiesta Bowl for the 1998 NCAA football championship. This was a very big deal for folks who grew up in Tennessee, their last title having been about 50 years previous. Instead of the team getting its due in the waning moments, virtually every bit of that ABC air time was spent on the retiring Keith Jackson paying tribute to himself, as if the game was totally secondary. UT fans were furious, as you could imagine, just as Sox fans were when ESPN's crew covered the ALDS win over Boston as the end of something great.

Jackson's "retirement" was brief, and he was back announcing NCAA football the next fall. He and McCarver (oh, and Boomer, too) stand out as a pompous asses in a profession not lacking them.

McCarver hasn't bothered me, as i couldn't bring myself to watch fox sports any more than i could stand watching fox news .. many years ago when he was teamed with Al Michaels and Jim Palmer on abc, he wasn't that bad, as long as the other guys didn't let him talk too much .. those three guys in their youth, were great .. today, not so much, sucks to get old..

I'm pretty sure it was the Cardinals local broadcast. I had the game on for a short time yesterday and they were plugging an upcoming Jim Edmonds bobblehead night.

He just fills in on the Cardinals games when needed. Like Paciorek.
