Chip Shot

It looks as if we are finally rid of Chip Caray calling games at TBS.

Finally.

Caray has been haunting baseball fans with his bad calls, fact errors and exaggerating with extreme frequency for far too long. This was even more obvious during this year’s MLB playoffs on TBS when Caray was at the forefront of their telecasts. Caray’s most unmemorable call was during the Tigers/Twins game 163 when an obvious line drive to left was called this way:

“Line drive. Base hit. Caught out there. The runner tags. Throw to the plate. On target. And in time! A double play!”

Absolutely horrible. It’s not often I call for someone’s head, but this was a long time coming as he just didn’t seem to have a grasp on the game of baseball.

Now if we could only find a way to get baseball off TBS we’d really be in business.
