In response to SpacemanEephus' comment:
Buck is actually not a bad game caller. He has been dragged down for years by Morgan and McCarver. I hope he gets a decent color guy after McBlahBlah lets us all mercifully off the hook and retires.
McCarver speaks more intelligently and directly when he's away from these broadcasts. On air for a big game, he seems to be putting on an act to appeal to a more mainsteam audience, stating more of what seems obvious to sophisticated baseball fans. I don't care for his act. Maybe they can find a replacement that can appeal to a broader audience more seemlessly.
listen to yourself sheriff
U nailed it, except his ''act'' is who he should be catering too
the young & less informed
I know stating the obvious can get very annoying ( see m kay)
but us diehards are in the minority
Of course I know it's part of his job, zac. It doesn't mean I have to like it though. The operative word in my post is "seemlessly". The challenge for any color announcer is to appeal to the mainsteam without putting off the die-hards. I think Buck Martinez does a decent job at this. I also thought that Francona was pretty good.
