Anybody else that can't stand these two. IMHO they ruin any game they announce. They don't even seem to be having the same conversation sometimes. Had to mute it and turn the radio.

Can't stand them. And as a NY Yankees and NY Giants fan, I get subjected to Joe Buck more than I care to- Fox gets a lot of the Yankees/Bosux games and the Giants are on FOX so we get Joe Buck and Aikman a lot.

He makes my ears bleed. I wish Marv Albert could do every game lol

Joe Buck I can take or leave. I think McCarver does a good job. Wish everyone could hear Mike Shannon and John Rooney on the radio. They area riot and probable drunk most of the time. Many local bars will show the game and turn them on instead.

David B. Fleming is doing the Giants Cards game tonight. He still is an announcer for the Giants and definitely one of the best in the business.

Sad thing is they let Joe Buck do football games and he knows even less about that.

Back in the 70's Tim McCarver would catch all of Steve Carlton's games with the Phillies. They worked as a team, and what a team.

I like Joe Buck. I really loved to hear his dad call a game. What a class act. Tim McCarver is getting old and it shows. It is my understanding this will be his last year. The guy I enjoyed most was Jon Miller. he was/is old school. The guy makes me feel like I am there like the old tyme radio guys used to. Back when he and Joe Morgan called the Sunday night game on ESPN I didnt miss it.

I just told my bride - "I hate the Yankmes and the Red Sox, but I'd tune in just to listen to Buck and McCarver call the game."

Until you sit through a season of Tom Grieve and Steve Busby, you do not know how bad TV baseball can be.

Tim McCarver is a distant cousin of mine. Never met him though.

Several years ago the Giants hired McCarver to do part-time TV for some Sunday games. The fans ran him out of town. Someone needs to tell him it's baseball, not rocket science.

I don't like them either. Buck's dad was a legend.
