Tim McCarver Is A Genius, But You Knew That Already

Tim McCarver was his usual self last night, which is to say he made very little sense.

Two comments from McCarver of note (thanks to AA as always):

First -- "The carom shows it didn't hit out, I don't think. Because the carom goes up. Had it hit on the top of the wall it skids past the wall it me."


Second -- Here's some audio and brilliant math. "It's six in a row retired by Beckett ... tailing fastball to Gutierrez. I said six in a row ... that's ten in a row. One more time, the third times the charm....nine in a row retired by Beckett."

Seriously, can we get Conan in the booth, stat?

I watched all of 5 second of the game, and in those 5 seconds I heard Timmay talk about how CC Sabathia put more "umph" into a pitch.  He then made a sound that I could only describe as McCarver being sexually attacked by a moose.
