  • McCARVER'S STILL GOT IT!

    Perhaps one of the greatest mis-steps or "mis-spokes" (?) ever uttered from the booth by a commentator in World Series play came last night from the mis-lips of Tim McCarver. To sum it up quickly, let me use writer Bob Velin's description from USA Today:
    -----------------------------

    ""Barry! Barry! Barry!" The AT&T Park crowd was chanting after Giants pitcher Barry Zito got a base hit Wednesday night in Game 1 of the World Series in San Francisco.

    After Tim McCarver said that was not a sound Zito has been hearing too often around these parts, Fox broadcast partner Joe Buck laid one right in McCarver's wheelhouse:

    "They used to say it for somebody else around here," Buck said.

    To which McCarver replied: "When Barry Manilow was playing in a concert."

    Of course! You remember baseball's all-time home run king, Barry Manilow.
    "Or Barry Bonds," Buck teased.

    Later in the inning, Buck said to McCarver: "Come back to me over there."

    "Sorry, it's one of those moments," McCarver laughed.

    Yeah, one of those senior moments.

      He also said "Two home runs on two fastballs that traveled a total of 190 mph. 95 mph for each one."

        He also referred to Pablo Sandoval, the Panda as "Pandoval." His correction was hilarious because it was a slow, lengthy one as if were apologizing for using steroids. It was something like

        "I said Pandoval. I did not mean that. I combined Panda and Sandoval. What I should have said was 'Panda' or 'Sandoval.'"

          Actually if he had just shut up and not apologized, I would have thought Pandaval was a perfect new nickname. It was clever...IF he had meant it. Probably would have called DiMaggio "Revoltin Joe" or "The Clankee Yipper."

            Ha! Good one, JJ! And almost as Manilow wrote it, McCarver riffs the lines that make the whole world sting.

              Right! I thought I heard McCarver say that, and then I thought, "Nah, why would he!?"

              Meanwhile Sandoval's three homers ended up traveling well over 280 mph, right? Just a few more homers and Kung Fu Panda will break the sound barrier!

                  Except Manilow didn't write that song.

                    Ive heard other people can Pablo "Pandoval." It might just be me, but I like it, combines his name with his nickname.

                    But again, thats just me.

                        McCarver's a total dope. He spends his time thinking of old players that are totally irrelevant to what's going on, and when it comes to something as simply to Barry Bonds, his response goes towards Barry Manilow. Classic.

                              That definitely has a familiar ring to it, Ian. One could almost hum along...
