Tim McCarver wrote "Baseball for Brain Surgeons and Other Fans," but he's not a real scientist, which is why it was a surprise to hear the national Fox announcer (and former catcher) opine that climate change is leading to more home runs. McCarver says "climactic changes" of the last 50 years are making the ball "carry farther than I remember," although he acknowledges it "hasn't been proven yet." It's certainly not better training, performance-enhancing drugs or McCarver's bad memory. It's the weather.

What an idiot!

Yeah, first we had engineers and now we get baseball announcers? Sheesh. Leave the prognosticating to climatologists, you know.

McCarver had his better days at least two decades ago. This could be onset of The Big
A in his case. Very typical of the bewildered who attack we who don't, like lemmings, blindly jump into lock step the man-done-it party line.
