Tonight at 8:09pm Eastern I will be on the couch, in front of the TV……playing VIDEO GAMES, You don’t expect me to watch baseball until midnight, do you? Seems like I am not the only one.
The ALCS averaged 2.781 million viewers, an all-time record low by more than half a million viewers (Indians-Blue Jays, 2016, 3.33 million). That’s down 43% from last year’s NLCS on TBS (Washington’s four game sweep over St. Louis, 3.995 million) and 77% from last year’s ALCS on Fox (Houston’s seven game victory over the Yankees, 4.929 million viewers).
The NLCS averaged 4.476 million viewers, up 12% from last year’s NLCS on TBS and down 10% from last year’s ALCS on Fox. (editor’s note – baseball is back baby!)

Baseball is fortunate the Dodgers made it. The Dodgers are one of the few glam teams. They play in Los Angeles. They have some people I have heard of….I am opening up their roster now and I have heard of some of them….let;se see…yes, yes, yes, yes, maybe, nope, definitely no, yes. Not too bad, and two of the guys (Betts and Kershaw) are Actual Stars. The Baseball Mafia thinks Seager and Bellinger are, but they are wrong.
Let’s see who the Rays are…well the first problem is the Rays aren’t ahead of the Lightnings (all hockey names should end in S) although to be fair they are google ranked ahead of Tom Brady’s team somehow..
But as for the players….who WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE? THESE ARE BASEBALL PLAYERS????
Seriously? Are these the actual stars of the Rays?
WHO, WHO, WHO, WHO, WHO, THE GUY I HEARD OF FOR THE FIRST TIME TWO WEEKS AGO AND HE DOESN’T EVEN HAVE A RAYS HAT ON, WHO AND WHO?
NO SERIOUSLY, WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE?
Now before you go calling me old/stupid/cranky – I have written a baseball blog since 2008. You know I am on social media 16 hours a day, You would think that accidentally I would have heard of Yoshitomo Tsutsugo the same way I have heard of Arozarena or whatever his name is.
This is on baseball, which does a terrible job of promoting people.
But whatever. I no longer care. I hope the Rays win it all with their stupid bull penning and I hope every game ends at 2am Eastern. As I mentioned last week, Dom Smith broke me. He adopted Pete Alonso’s Vulgar Ways so I feel like this..
Whatever. You can be as vulgar as you want. Play games at midnight. I no longer care baseball. The sport will die with me and the rest of Generation X Hopefully we both have 50 years left. Whatever. My PS5 arrives November 12th.
