Speaking of Baseball

I am one of those who likes Tim McCarver as an announcer, but I do have to wonder what inane stats some producer hands to him that he doesn’tread. In a way, this statistics approach to announcing is largely good, since I imagine this is how most Americans learn about statistics. But when it comes to learning about some pitcher’s strikes to balls ratio in the third inning of games held in the third week of October against an away team playing with silver slacks, I think it goes a bit far.
