Tom McCarthy's Dumb Quote Of The Week

I really never planned to make a weekly piece on Tom McCarthy, but Chris Wheeler, Sarge Matthews, and him just make it to easy for me.

During tonight’s Phillies-Reds game, after a  riveting 15 minute conversation about why the announcers aren’t wearing their green shirts for Irish Heritage night, Sarge Matthews actually made a good point about how Shin-Soo Choo has been a great pickup for the Reds. That he has Sarge, as Choo is hitting .318 with nine homeruns and 19 RBI’s. Tom McCarthy then mentioned how Choo is an impending free-agent, which is a relevant point, but he continues on and makes this week’s dumb quote of the week “Someone is going to pay that young man a lot of money this offseason.” Shin-Soo Choo is 30 years old. In baseball terms, 30 isn’t old, but I certainly wouldn’t define 30 as “young man.”

I don’t know why this bothered me as much as  it did, but listening to this announcing crew is just wearing on me. And Tom McCarthy is in year one of a new five year deal. And you thought Ryan Howard had a bad contract…
