McCarver will call a full schedule of games for Fox this season. McCarver had been thinking about moving on for a couple of years. McCarver later worked for ABC and CBS before joining Fox in 1996. Going into this year, McCarver, 71, has called 23 World Series and 28 consecutive postseasons. Like Mariano Rivera, McCarver is taking one last parade around the league, shacking up next to Joe Buck and calling some baseball games for the final time. In my 5 1/2 decades of obsessive baseball monitoring, I've reached these conclusions about the guys in the booth Vin Scully is the most entertaining/knowledgeable color or play-by-play man, and Tim McCarver is No. 2, not far behind. These are not unpopular views. The two-time champion catcher will call the World Series this year and then retire from his analyst job at Fox.
