FOX Broadcasters Jinxing No-Hitters in American League Championship Series

Tim McCarver can't retire soon enough. He's jinxed no-hitters two nights in a row for the Detroit Tigers in the American League Championship Series.

He, along with fellow FOX announcer Joe Buck, couldn't wait to talk about Anibal Sanchez's no-no bid in Saturday's win over the Boston Red Sox. Max Scherzer's was ended shortly after FOX displayed a graphic of the Tigers pitchers carrying a no-hitter through at least five innings in their last three ALCS games.

In case you haven't figured it out, Shane Victorino singled to break up Scherzer's no-hitter as soon as that graphic was flashed, and Dustin Pedroia doubled him home on the very next batter.

Seriously, is it too much to ask these guys to respect the tradition of not mentioning the no-hitter?

It apparently is.
