McCarver is horrible.

He only states the most obvious and even then makes a bunch of mistakes.

Example: calling Albert Pujols, Luis PUjols.


McCarver has regressed for sure. He's getting by on southern charm and reputation now. But back in '83 he (and Darryl Strawberry and Keith Hernandez) was the biggest breath of fresh air this organization ever had. He was honest, critical when neccessary, witty, and taught me much more about a sport I thought I had mastered. He also breathed new life into Ralph Kiner, giving us 2 good guys in the booth!

I cannot listen to McCarver and NOT think of those "coming back to life" days of 83-86. McCarver became a true best friend and, no mater how he handles his gig now, I will forever be grateful for the enjoyment he brought me back then!

I don't mind Joe Buck, I actually think he's ok, like velvet mixed with peanut butter, er something... :)

McCarver, on the other hand, is awful, just awful.


I usually do not mind him but to do a playoff game with his home team playing is tough. I think they should have a guy from both local broadcast.

I'm just happy I don't have to listen to Miller and Morgan.

It really is painful listening to Buck and McCarver.... more so now that the Mets are playing the Cardinals.

Example one from last night: When Beltran doubled Pujols off of 1st base, it got a ho-hum response out of Buck/McCarver..... like that play is an everyday occurrence.

Example two: The HR by Beltran, Joe Buck sounded deflated when he made that call.


I hate Buck. I couldn't stand it the whole time. FOx did a good job with the Sheaman thought!
