Bad News For Fisting Fans


Chip “My father and grandfather were legends and the only reason I have a job in baseball is because of them” Caray and his long-time employer, TBS have “mutually” agreed to part ways after a post-season marred by miscalls, inaccuracies and a whole slew of balls fisted all over the field.

“Since the end of the 2009 MLB Playoffs, we’ve had several discussions with Chip Caray regarding 2010 and beyond. Both sides agree that now is the right time to move ahead on different paths,” the network said in a statement.

Make no mistake, this was NOT a mutual move, he got shit-canned. I can’t think of a single time Chip Caray has made a baseball game better. If his name was Chip Fister, he’d be managing a Home Depot right now.

That’s the way love goes.

    out of the national play-by-play announcers we are forced to suffer, I actually like chip caray, well, probably the most. joe buck is intolerably smug these days (plus suffering through Tim McCarver). john miller has that annoying constant twinge of exasperation in his old man voice (plus suffering through joe morgan.) chris berman is the worst sports anything ever. kenny albert is a tool.

    there are others, i reckon. but joe buck is definitely the worst case of announcer nepotism ever.

      Dave O’Brien is really really good. And you know what, I really liked Bob Costas this season on MLB network.

      However, there is NO way that Chip Caray is not a more egregious version of nepotism over Joe Buck. Buck has admitted he doesn’t like baseball and so that is why he seems so apathetic, but he still calls a decent enough game, and he has the talent to do the job even if he doesn’t like it.

      Caray is just miserable to sit through

      the only reason i think it is worse is because Buck calls for FOX and Caray called for TBS.

      costas was good. i just don’t see that much MLB network yet.

    Then I guess you aren’t really living. In-season, nothing beats MLB network and their endless live coverage with live look-ins at big moments in games while they happen. Yum.
