Tim McCarver is leaving FOX Sports at the end of this season, retiring from being the voice you complain about during the playoffs when you aren't complaining about Joe Buck.
Presumably, the move is based on his music career, which according to Amazon's inventory, is taking off.
Twitter was less than saddened by the news, indicated by the wave of relief and exclamation points that vented from it depths.

One of baseball's more popular memes was criticizing Tim McCarver, so it will be curious to see where all of that hate goes once he is gone.
Probably to Joe Buck.
