This interminable, dull interview with Verlander while the game is going on is inexcusable.

    I wish there was something we could do to put a stop to it. Ridiculous.

    What happened to the strike zone that they were using to show where the pitches are? It has been non existent for the last 2 games.

    Have they interviewed one giant during the series? Its like this every year the worst coverage of a major sporting event.

    I really didn’t like that Fox had these interviews during the game and seemingly almost forgot the game.

    I ESPECIALLY did not like the interview with the Taco Bell guy DURING the game. If it was during the time teams were changing from batting to taking the field is one thing, but during the game is just simply inexcusable.

    Yes, Lowell, these interviews with players and coaches during the game are inexcusable, and should stop. I tuned in to watch a baseball game without goofy distractions, and what did I get? Goofy distractions!

    Everyone is suppposed to be “in the moment.” Even when you get bumped off your plane. “Ah, so how does THIS moment feel?” But when we turn on the T.V. to watch the World Series we are asking for the World Series moment. So what do Fox do? They give us a different moment than the World Series moment and we end up listening to boring pitchers and batters and fans and missing the World Series moment that we wanted to watch.

    I liked the interview with Sergio Romo, but I am biased.

    Is it me or is it me or is it Erin Andrews? I cannot stand her. She has got to be the all time worst.

    Seems a bit over the top all of the criticism that Buck and McCarver get here in the Bay Area. Does anyone really think the rest of the country want to hear Kruk and Kuip and the gang? Buck is mediocre and never really seems to really grasp the gravity of dramatic moments. But he’s certainly not terrible, just a bit dull. McCarver is decent and occasionally explains something interesting. I respect his opinion and always admired his generation of player. I think we should all chill on that topic as it’s a little silly to expect the national perspective to mirror our own here in the Bay Area. And Amy G is certainly no better than these horrible bleacher reporters FOX throws in there.

    I thought his smiling and joking while HIS team was losing during the game and behind 3-0 in the series represented the ultimate “Eastcoast Bias”..the arrogance.

    Does Joe Buck get paid by the word? The man is not only biased against the West Coast, but does not shut up. My TV was on mute most of the time.

    Mark M,

    How about Jon Miller? He has more excitement in his yawn than Buck has when things are exciting. Miller used to do the game of the week – not sure if he still does – but he was great, even if he didn’t have a “dog in the fight”.

    At least McCarver can go back to his day job of being a greeter at Wal Mart.

    Maybe Fox was trying to interject the human interest element like they do during Olympic games coverage ad nauseum. Bad Idea. Nobody wanst to hear chit- chat with the loser Detroit players while the game is in progress.

    Agree Dennis, Jon Miller is light years better than anyone going today. Still not sure how he lost his gig at ESPN but happy to have him locally still

    I wish they would just focus on the game and stop with the interviews and long long tv breaks. Fox is doing a horrible job with this world series I miss NESN they at least focus on the game and still manage to have fun. These guys are boring.
