I bring up Musser today because the Phils announced earlier this week that Tom McCarthy will be returning from his New York hiatus to rejoin the Phils broadcast team. From the Phillies.com articles:
Tom McCarthy, who spent the last two seasons as a play-by-play announcer for the New York Mets on WFAN, is returning to his roots as a member of the Phillies broadcasting team, Rob Brooks, Manager, Broadcasting announced today.Although the entire TV/radio schedule is not set, it looks from this quote that Chris Wheeler will not be doing TV play-by-play. Woo-hooooooo!!!! Now if we can just get L.A. some innings on TV...
"Tom is an exceptional announcer and a great person. We are thrilled that we can bring him back to work on our telecasts," said Brooks. "He will do play-by-play for three innings when Hall of Famer Harry Kalas is not on television. Harry will continue to provide play-by-play for six innings on TV while also doing the fourth inning on radio as he's done in years past."
"With Harry, Scott Franzke and Tom, we have some of the best play-by-play talent in baseball. We also have three solid color commentators in Larry Andersen, Chris Wheeler and Gary Matthews."
