Tim McCarver’s Final Year at Fox

Tim McCarver, the longtime Fox baseball analyst, is one of the most divisive TV voices in sports. Fans either enjoy his witty banter with Joe Buck, or absolutely canít stand him and wish Fox would replace him.

Fans who donít like McCarver may soon get their wish. McCarver 71, is entering the final year of his contract at Fox Sports. Heís been calling the World Series with Buck on Fox since 1996 (except for 1997 and 1999, when NBC had it), and sources say the two sides havenít made much progress about a contract extension. If a deal is struck, itíll likely happen in the next few weeks.

[UPDATE: Fox Sports spokesman Dan Bell tells me: We fully expect Tim to continue with us.]

The decision Fox faces: Keep the duo together (Buck has said nothing but great things about McCarver), or go in a new direction. Thereís the ďif-it-isnít-broke-donít-fix-itĒ crowd who says they have chemistry Ö and everyone else who is ready for Buck to have a new partner (or two).
