Amen. He did it more than once during regular-season games this year. And while we're at it, if he's not going to be fired, could someone tell him that it's FOX that employs him and that he's no longer an announcer for the Yankees? Ordinarily, I think the name on the check would be a big clue who he works for, but experience has told me that self-evident is a term with a special exemption for Tim McCarver.

Sox win.

Now, if it comes out a week from now that Vladdy, Figgins and seven other Angels threw the series, I would laugh forever.



On the flip side, congrats to ABC for hiring Tim McGraw to tailor the lyrics to "I like it, I love it" for every halftime highlight show throughout the "Monday Night Football" season. Just last week, my buddy House and I were discussing Cosell's classic highlight narratives in the '70s, and how nobody had approached them since, and I told House, "Only one thing could ever come close, and I know it's a long shot, but what if ABC hired Tim McGraw to tailor the lyrics to 'I Like it, I Love It' for each week of NFL highlights throughout the season?" And wouldn't you know, it happened! See, dreams can come true. --- Bill Simmons, www.sportsguy.net

Six others ... five if you don't count Buck Weaver, and four if you believe Shoeless Joe Jackson told management about the fix before the series even started. According to a couple sources, Jackson even asked to be benched for the series so there would be no question he wasn't in on it.

Sorry ... I'm proofreading a new book my company has coming out on not the fix of the 1919 World Series, but he cover-up of the fix by baseball. Did you know that the fix didn't get exposed until September 1920? A full year to come out with what was rumored before the 1919 series even began.

A few years ago, they did complain about the leather basketballs, I think at the Final Four.
