Tim McCarver Doesn't Know Sh*t from Shinola

Let me break this down for you, Tim...

With the Philadelphia leading the Dodgers 3-2, Phillies' skipper Uncle Charlie Manuel (undoubtedly after consulting with his boy Dooobey) brought Ryan Madsen in in relief of starter Cole Hamels in the top of the 8th. With Andre Ethier leading off, announcer Tim McCarver went on to praise Madsen as having the "best change-up on the staff" no less than twice in that at-bat and once after it.

Unbeknown the the viewing audience, McCarver, despite announcing the game, apparently slept through the first seven innings. He obviously missed the "keys to the game" feature in the beginning which noted Hamels' "All-World" change-up, and the 8 strikeouts the starter threw.

No offense to Madsen, who allowed one-hit and no damage facing the heart of LA's order, but anyone who knows sh*t from shinola knows Cole Hamels once struck somebody out with a 3-1 changeup.
