Jim Deshaies: One of the funniest analysts in the majors for years, he's taking a step up from Astros to the Cubs this season. That loss might be more upsetting to Astros fans than the 100 or so their team is likely to suffer this season. The former pitcher can dissect a game with the best of them while keeping us entertained.

Brad Ausmus: Fox would have to get in line behind the teams that would love to convince this guy to manage. The Ivy Leaguer is as intelligent and well-spoken as anybody they could find. He'd be a star by the middle of his first season.

Bobby Valentine: This is entertainment after all. And it is Fox. Bringing Bobby V back to the booth is as close to reality TV as they're going to get. He knows his X's and O's and doesn't have to be concerned with who he his rubs the wrong way. And he'll fit right in on the inevitable glut of Red Sox-Yankees games.

Manny Ramirez: OK, so he's a longshot. But he should be available after a 2013 victory lap in Taiwan.

Harold Reynolds and Tom Verducci will join Joe Buck in the announcers' booth for Fox's Major League Baseball coverage this season.

Tim McCarver retired after the World Series as the network's top color commentator.

I think I'd rather have McCarver back than Reynolds and Verducci.

Hey, Tim McCarver still calls games for the Cardinals


Pedro Martinez should get a bigger role on fox or TBS. Best analyst I have seen in awhile

I'd kill to have McCarver back after seeing that Reynolds is replacing him.

He said on a Blues broadcast last year that baseball is actually his favorite sport to call. I don't like him all that much, but he's not boring because he's disinterested. He's just boring.

The Carve will be doing 30 games for the Cardinals local broadcast. I just hope all 3 of them won't be together, or my head will explode. Hrabosky and Mc are bad enough as it is.

I hated McCarver, but I agree. Reynolds is even worse.

I guess the mute button will have to be used again this year. I hope they only use him for FOX games and not FS1 games since the FOX games can be shown on Extra Innings now.

Probably just said that because it's a St. Louis broadcast and that's what the fans want to hear...

I think all four calling the game would be hilarious

Could be, but it was a Blues broadcast, not a Cards broadcast. Many Blues fans could give a damn about the Cards. He got his start in baseball, and his dad is a broadcasting legend for (mainly)baseball and he's from St. Louis. I think there's a pretty good chance he likes baseball quite a lot
