Fox Sports baseball analyst Tim McCarver has a history of bizarre comments. During yesterday’s Brewers/Cardinals game he kept the streak alive by equating the number of home runs hit with “climactic” changes over the last few decades.

The rundown from Newsbusters:

“It has not been proven, but I think ultimately it will be proven that the air is thinner now, there have been climactic changes over the last 50 years in the world, and I think that’s one of the reasons balls are carrying much better now than I remember,” McCarver said during Saturday’s game between the Milwaukee Brewers and the St. Louis Cardinals.

He then commented about some recent shots that went further than he would have expected leading his co-announcer Joe Buck to marvelously ask, “So that’s your ‘inconvenient truth’ about Major League Baseball?”

“Well,” the former catcher responded, “I think they’re going to find that out one of these days, yes I do.”

“That’s a theory,” he continued, “but we’ll see.”

Just to be safe I think each batter who hits a home run should have to purchase carbon credits until we get this sorted out.

In the past few years the home run totals have been in a fairly steady decline. Here are the home run totals for 2000 through 2009:

null

The recent decline continued in 2010 and 2011, with 4,613 and then 4,552 total home runs hit respectively. That must be evidence the age of global warming is over. The science is settled!

Regardless, Al Gore must be pleased that he has somebody helping peddle his propaganda from the broadcast booth:
