Kudos to Fox though for dropping Scooter, the talking baseball that insulted our intelligence (for free!).

Some McCarver quotes just from last night:

"If Oliver Perez throws in the succeeding innings like he did in the first, you might not need the bullpen early."


"What you're about to see is one of the most important statistics in baseball."

--During the 2006 season, if a runner reaches base with no outs, he scores 43 percent of the time. With one out, 30 percent of the time. With two outs, 15 percent of the time.--

"A dramatic, dramatic difference."


"Nothing in baseball can quiet a crowd like good pitching."


"Well, David Eckstein, like most of us, has 20 digits. Ten fingers, ten toes."


"Something to keep in mind -- it's raining lightly. The infield could be very wet on ground balls."


..."Eric Chavez"...


"No left-handed hitter in baseball could have hit that pitch"

I think that may have been the dumbest one from a baseball perspective.

I believe it was a righty throwing a curveball to a lefty. Usually lefties pick up righty curveballs much better. However, maybee the pitch placement was what he was talking about as it may have started way off the plate.

But still if it was a righty it woulda been even harder
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

Life is like riding an elevator. It has a lot of ups and downs and someone is always pushing your buttons.

I don't know; it was pretty classy of McCarver to point out that, like most of us, Eckstein has ten fingers, ten toes. I mean, he could have said "like all of us" and that would be alienating those of us with birth defects and involved in tragic high school shop accidents.

Besides wrveres, I often have a hard time believing that you find anything funny... aren't some things just worth taking a jab at?

yeah when it is funny..

this here, and I'll use your words, this here is a "bore fest"

Since you are so convincd that you would do a better job than McCarver, and would never ever mis-speak, maybe you should apply for the job. :-t

Alright, forget it... McCarver is only the most ridiculed color commentator in all of sports but we can just ignore my desperate and feeble attempts at humor.

I'm such a nitpicker; someone better lock this thread before it turns to politics.
