Skip Caray is a genius

Because the Yankees are on at 8 p.m. tonight, I have to watch some baseball. I see that the Braves are on TBS, so I decide to watch.

I must say, the Braves announcers are terrible. Harry Caray's son Skip and grandson Chip are calling the game this afternoon against the Indians. They are such homers.

Here is what Skip Caray (pictured) just said:

"I think they should make baseball more like golf. It should have water, hazards, and sand traps."

Great insight.

I have the same affliction. It's a nice day. I could go out and hang out with my dad for Father's Day at the pool. But instead, TBS it is. And the Braves. Ugh.

No announcer can be nearly as bad as Tim McCarver though. None. The dumbest thing I've ever heard anyone say: it started raining the other day when there was a delay during the Yankee/Sox game, he chimed in with, "Well, it doesn't smell like a long rain delay."

I can just see them turning off the mics and being like "what the hell were you talking about?"

"If you leadoff and you play every day, you're guaranteed to bat with the bases empty at least 162 times."

Wow. I suddenly want to purchase a "Shut Up Tim McCarver" tshirt. I had no idea so many people in the world were with me on this.

Does he say these things just so that people pay attention to him? Or does he really mean them? And how does Joe Buck not smack him in the mouth?
