Veteran broadcaster and former major-league catcher Tim McCarver of course stepped away from his longtime job as a Fox television commentator after the 2013 World Series. Now, it seems he may be pondering a return to the booth. Here's this from Dan Caesar of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:

Sources said there have been discussions about him being a part of the team's broadcasts next season, probably in a limited role.

...

McCarver, contacted Thursday, did not want to talk about any specific job possibilities for next season. But he did reiterate that he hasn't retired at age 72.

"As I (said) this past summer I was not retiring — I never used that word," he said. "And yet it was used all over the country'' when his Fox run ended. “I can‘t quit cold turkey, (at least) I hope I can't quit cold turkey. So we'll see. I just don't want to crawl in a hole some place for the rest of my life. That's unrealistic."

McCarver, 72, spent 12 of his 21 seasons as a player in a Cardinals uniform, so there's certainly enough history to back up such a move, should it come to pass.
