New York Giants @ San Francisco 49ers [FOX 4:25PM] JOE BUCK, Troy Aikman & Pam Oliver
Joe Buck is going to work Giants-49ers at Candlestick Park, then go to AT&T Park to work Game 1 of NLCS.
I'm so glad that my Patriots get Eagle/Fouts this week. In my opinion, those two should be the top announce team at CBS.
@Sa9273 Also, have you heard any info on who is the on-site studio host for Fox's postseason action? It's my understanding that Chris Rose was dismissed from Fox in early 2012, so will they use a combination of Joe Buck and Matt Vasgersian and the MLB Network group like they did for the All-Star Game? Or will they perhaps use Erin Andrews?
@Sa9273 That's pretty crazy considering that these 4:25 ET starts usually cause the NFL games to run up to around 7:55 PM ET, only 20 minutes before first pitch. My money says that Buck is gonna get stuck in traffic and be late for the baseball game. Do they have Thom Brennaman on site to either call the end of the football game (if Buck leaves early to get to AT&T Park) or to call the beginning of the baseball game (if Buck stays at Candlestick, and the game runs late)?
@Sa9273 Never mind, I found the studio information myself. Looks like for the first time since 2009, Fox will not be using an on-site studio at the NLCS. They'll be using the MLB Network studio like the regular season, and it will be hosted by Matt Vasgersian, Harold Reynolds, Eric Karros, and A. J. Pierzynski.

Sam Rosen is off the schedule.
Buck is taking a trolly car from Candlestick to AT&T Park. If Buck doesn't make it to the NLCS in time, McCarver flys solo until he arrives.
