Fans who don’t think Joe Buck does a good job calling baseball games on Fox and would prefer to see him replaced might get their wish sooner than they realize.

During a long Q&A with 590 The Fan’s Tim McKiernan at The Improv Shop in St. Louis Tuesday night, Buck was asked about remarks he made in a podcast interview with Brad Straubinger that indicated he might like to step back from his baseball broadcasting obligations in the near future. Was that true? Or did McKiernan misinterpret Buck’s remarks?

Here was Buck’s response:

“Yeah, I think I — I love it — but I’ve been doing it for a long time and I feel like somebody else should do it. I’ve done enough. I’m signed for three more World Series, and that’ll be 22 — which is stupid to even think about. If somebody said right now, before I walk outta here, you’re done, I’ve had the greatest career miles beyond anything I could have ever dreamed.

But I would like to get some of my time back and be at home, be in St. Louis, be with my wife and watch my kids, even though they’re 20 and 17, and doing their own thing. I’ve been gone a lot this year, and I’m not crying about it. I love it. But I need to take stuff out.”

As Buck hinted at during his remarks, no one needs to feel sorry for him.
