Perfect Christmas present for a baseball card blogger.

Tim McCarver is now officially the William Shatner of baseball. While we were busy living life, he came out last month with a recording called, ever modestly, Tim McCarver Sings Selections from The Great American Songbook. Here's a link to the CD on Amazon--you might want to peruse the heavily ironic reviews that his pipes have inspired several wags to offer up. Then sit back, light a few candles, draw the shades, and download to your iPod an awe-inspiring rendition of "On a Clear Day." You can seeee forrrevver, anDevver, anDevver, anDevverrrrr moooooore.

If we are lucky, he'll get an act in Vegas and quit screwing up the playoffs.

I listened to some of the samples, and as McCarver would say: "my goodness!"

But it could be worse:

"McCarver sings disco's greatest hits"

"McCarver sings the best of Motley Crue"

"McCarver and Jay-Z together for the first time"

"Can't Smile Without You: McCarver finds his inner Manilow"

"My Heart Will Go On: McCarver sings the best of Celine Dion"

I also sampled a couple of the songs. Two was all I could stand. Sometimes when you see a project you have to think "Who thought this was a good idea? Fire him!"
