Do these awards just grow on trees nowadays? Craig Calcaterra reports that Tim McCarver has won the Ford Fricke Award for broadcasting excellence. If the criteria involved driving me to drinking and causing muted television sets across the country during broadcasts, then McCarver is your man, I suppose.
Calcaterra makes a point about how McCarver's color commentary has changed the way baseball is broadcast, but also argues for a single broadcaster in the booth. Those of us blessed to listen to Vinny couldn't agree more.
