"Philadelphia Phillies broadcast crew doesn't match team's success"
Tom McCarthy, the play-by-play man on TV for the Phillies, has a great broadcasting voice and shows a lot of excitement throughout the games. However, sometimes it feels as if McCarthy gets more excited for the promos than he does the action on the field. I'm not sure how many more "New York Life's Safe and Secure" at second base ads I can take.
The major issue for McCarthy might be he talks too much. Great baseball announcers, like Kalas, allow the game to breathe on TV and don't talk every second. It seems like McCarthy needs to comment on everything happening on-camera, whether it's a fan eating ice cream or the ball girl chasing after a foul ball. Sometimes McCarthy should just let the sights and sounds of the game speak for themselves.
