VIDEO: Tim McCarver of MLB on Fox: Global Warming Moron

For one last bit of confirmation for anyone not sure that Tim McCarver is an idiot:


McCarver blamed global warming for more home runs in baseball during a Major League Baseball game between the Milwaukee Brewers and St. Louis Cardinals at Busch Stadium this afternoon.

UPDATE

Sean Hackbarth has the exact language at his blog:

Tim McCarver: “[T]he air is thinning…. There have been climatic changes over the last 50 years…. I think that’s one of the reasons balls are carrying much better now.”

Joe Buck [Fox Sports play-by-play announcer]: “So that’s your ‘inconvenient truth’ about it?”

McCarver: “You’re going to find it out one of these days, yes.”

UPDATE:
Also via Hackbarth, Deadspin has video:
