Tim McCarver, Fox Baseball Analyst, is Retiring After This Season
By Jason McIntyre
When I wrote about McCarver’s contract situation in February, I tossed out a few names (and one current manager) who could replace McCarver:
Bob Brenly – Veteran catcher/manager has won a World Series (2001) and had a nice run in the booth. Has called postseason games since 2007. Left the Cubs (WGN) for the Diamondbacks in October.
John Smoltz – Atlanta Braves pitching legend has taken quickly to the booth since making his debut in 2008.
Ron Darling – Sharp, polished Mets analyst has been calling postseason games on TBS since 2007.
Any other names?
[PS – What does this mean about our earlier post speculating Andy Roddick and Bomani Jones going to Fox? We’ll see.]
