TIM MCCARVER: ...Fox will be carrying the All-Star Game and World Series for the next seven years.
JOE BUCK: You're stuck with us! America, you're stuck with us, for SEVEN YEARS!
Man, that sucks. But, as Buck then pointed out, technically we're just stuck with Fox. Who knows about Buck and McCarver. Anyway, from the play-by-play I have two quick observations:
- In three of four "This Time It Counts" ASG's, a Ranger has had a key hit. (Of course, I imagine Buck and/or McCarver mentioned that, seventeen times or so.) Thanks, Texas!
- Jose Lopez had an exciting night. Called in as a pinch runner, walked to third on a ground-rule double, walked home on Young's triple, and then let the tying run on because of an error in the 9th (he's only played 3rd in 2 games).
