Tom McCarthy Back in the Booth

Abbreviated from the Phillies Press Release:

Tom McCarthy, who spent the last two seasons as a play-by-play announcer for the New York Mets on WFAN, is returning to his roots as a member of the Phillies broadcasting team, Rob Brooks, Manager, Broadcasting announced today. His contract is five years in length.

“He will do play-by-play for three innings when Hall of Famer Harry Kalas is not on television. Harry will continue to provide play-by-play for six innings on TV while also doing the fourth inning on radio as he’s done in years past,” said Brooks.

Jim Jackson will return handling pre- and post-game shows on WPHT The Big Talker 1210 AM and the Phillies radio network.

Scott Franzke will keep his play-by-play duties while Larry Andersen, Chris Wheeler and Gary Matthews return as color commentators.

    Why is Gary Matthews back for a second season? Does somebody in management owe him a big favor? We would rather turn the sound off when he is in the booth and listen to the radio broadcast. Nice guy, but come on! Not an announcer!

    Actually, I think Gary Matthews knows a lot more about baseball and is a better announcer than Chris Wheeler. I dont like Matthews in the middle innings, i prefer him in the beginning and the end of the game. tom mccarthy is excellent though a good successor to harry if he ever decides to retire.

    I couldn’t agree more with Ray,
    T Mac must get payed by the word!
    The spots he does during the game have you noticed he crams a 10min. pontification into 30 seconds.
    Shut up already!!!
    Bring back Scott Grahm!
