A Turner Network spokesman confirmed Monday that TBS won’t be using Chip Caray on baseball play by play in the future.

A son of late Braves broadcaster Skip Caray and a grandson of famed broadcaster Harry Caray, Chip Caray did first-round and division series playoff games for TBS during the past three seasons. He originally worked with Tony Gwynn and Bob Brenly, then teamed with Ron Darling and Buck Martinez.

Caray also was part of the network’s Sunday regular-season package.

Pomeroy said no replacement has been picked.

“Since the end of the 2009 MLB Playoffs, we’ve had several discussions with Chip Caray regarding 2010 and beyond. Both sides agree that now is the right time to move ahead on different paths,” the network said in a statement.

Not soon enough for most.

Caray was criticized heavily for his work, particularily last October, when he miscalled plays.

    This could mean trouble.

    Maybe those geniuses at FSN can suspend Vin Scully for using words they do not understand. And then they can convince Frank McCourt that Chip Caray would be a better fit than Vin for the Dodger fans.
