McCarver signs off

I started listening to Tim McCarver in the 1980s when he was a Mets broadcaster.  He and Ralph Kiner taught me so much about baseball and how to call a game well.  Love him or hate him (and my eyes roll just thinking about his obsession with baseball's obsession with pitch counts), he will be missed.

I can still remember the 9th inning of 2001's game seven. Bases loaded.  Rivera on the mound.  McCarver says that Jeter, who was playing in, should move back since Rivera induces so many bloop hits in short left field.  Sure enough.
