Mother of God, is this the end of Tim?

Regardless of your opinion of Tim McCarver, endings are almost always sad. Last night’s World Series finale was the swan song of his broadcasting career.

I especially appreciate McCarver’s comment that his goals as a broadcaster included “teaching you something you may not have known about this great game.”

He’s done that on the air and in print.

And when he gets bored with that, he can always re-establish his part time gig. (Hey, he’s better than Terry Bradshaw.)

 

Happy trails, Tim. Thanks for the memories. And the lessons.

    Tim was “all the rage” when he joined the Mets broadcast booth. I think he really added terrific insight and perspective in those days. But like so many things on FOX, he started to sound annoyingly like an ‘in your face’ “know it all”.
