Tim McCarver Makes My Ears Bleed

Yes, I rail on Tim "A Walk is as Good as a Home Run" McCarver and Joe "That Was a Changeup" Morgan a lot here. Deal with it. Today's game was no exception.

I can't go over everything that annoyed me, but one thing stands out. During the 9th inning Mariano Rivera is pitching to Jason Varitek and McCarver saying something like, "Rivera's success has always been measured by how many bats he breaks." Funny, I always thought Rivera's success was measured by ERA, WHIP, and saves. Dumbass. The best part was on the next pitch when Varitek breaks his bat.... on a single. Joe Buck yells, "A broken bat!" and you know he's thinking the same thing as all the viewers.
