Murcer, Murcer Me

As I've stated in this space before, Yankees broadcaster Bobby Murcer is good for at least one hilariously moronic statement in every game he calls.

The beloved Yankee is an Okie who barely speaks discernable English, yet somehow he's been part of the Yankee radio or television team for as long as I can remember. I like the guy, but man is it fun to pick apart his dialect and poke fun at him. Anyway, last night's verbal ridiculousness might have been my all-time favorite.

As Pirates' left-fielder Jason Bay, last year's NL Rookie of the Year, came to the dish early in the game, Murcer brought up the fact that Bay drove in eight runs in one game against the Cubs in September of last year, apparently the most of any Canadian-born ballplayer. Well, that's a good piece of knowledge, thanks for that. But fortunately for us, he didn't stop there.

That statement then begot this Murcer declaration:

With those 8 RBIs, "Jason Bay became the only Canadian with the most RBIs in one game."

The only Canadian...with the most RBIs. Fucking awesome.

In related news, having the last name Murcer makes Bobby Murcer the only Murcer in the broadcast booth for the Yankums.

Anyone catch Murcer's call of the Giambi BOMB to the upper deck?!?

"Hit fairly deep to right..."

Sweet. If that's fairly deep, then I'm Suzyn Waldman.
