Is it just me, or is Tim McCarver the most suck-ass baseball Color Commentator on the planet? If he were forbidden to use the word “I’ he wouldn’t be able to say a freak’n thing? What a bore, what a self-absorbed know-it-all, what a maroon, what an irritant. Come to think of it, is Kruk & Kuip really that good, or is McCarver just really that bad…? Nah, they really are that good and he’s horrible.
And what’s with those Fox Sports TV Engineers? Do I really need a 10-second close-up of every pitchers face in my living room and then break away to the pitch just as the ball is leaving the pitchers hand? Geez, I need a moment so my eyes focus on the action but Fox Sports runs those cameras like its a short-attention-span-theater. Come on guys, put the camera on and leave it alone once in awhile, will you? I can just see some guy at a control panel and 10 TV Monitors flipping screen shots like he’s Cecil B. DeMill. Give it a rest, please! This is baseball, not M-TV and you are not impressing anyone with your inability to focus.
And tell McCarver to STFU.
