Kornshizer: local loudmouth/voice of the east coast/just an ESPN suit monkey

I don't care if the ratings are down. I will watch and enjoy my team being in the World Series. People who don't wanna watch? That's fine, but you're gonna miss a great series with lots of great players.
the truth hurts
Giants fans and Rangers fans are going to watch regardless of who their teams play.

But there is something to the east coast thing. It's the only part of the country where baseball is still king. If the Yankees are playing in the World Series, Red Sox fans will watch (and so will all Yankees haters everywhere). If the Phillies are playing in the World Series, Mets fans will watch.

Sure, Giants-Dodgers is a great rivalry but I don't think it's the same thing. And in Texas ... please. The Rangers and the Astros are the ultimate afterthought.

As a fan, I'd rather see the Giants play the Yankees. I like the Giants. I hate the Yankees. I nothing the Rangers.

What he said is correct. It's a terrible world series for the ratings. I frankly see nothing wrong with what he said. And further what he said is 100% true.


Bulls**t dude. How about if the Mets and the Yankees played, would that be terrible for the ratings since it cuts out 90% of the country? No they'd be jizzing their pants over a New York world series. Or if the Phillies and Yankees played like last year, nobody west of Philly knows those teams? That's a bunch of crap. Or if the Dodgers were playing the Rangers they'd be jizzing their pants because it's LA. People who watch baseball know who the giants are and they know who guys like Lincecum are. They know who Cliff Lee is and they know Josh Hamilton. This is a bunch of crap spewed from the mouth of an east coast homer.

The Yankees in the World Series is the best case scenario every single year for ratings. People all around the country either love them or love to hate them. But both groups watch them if they reach the series.. With the current 2 in the series the analysts are right. A lot of people will not watch.

Then they're missing out on seeing some great baseball players. The yankees have to earn it to get to the world series, if not too bad. Blame them for s**tty ratings, not the Giants or Rangers. Besides, CA and Texas are 2 big media markets. If the east coast doesn't want to watch, too bad for them.

Ratings will be down for sure. Bay Area will enjoy it for a while until the Rangers get a hold of them. IMO the Rangers are the superior team this year.

Says the biased SoCal fan.

Rangers are capable of scoring 10+ a game. I don't know how you stop that?

With the same pitching staff that beat LA and SD
I wont be watching this world series, mainly because basketball is starting. Ill switch over to see what the score is but i wont watch

If the Phillies and Yankees were playing i would watch the world series and i hate both of those teams.

As a karate expert, I find your reasoning troubling to say the least.
to me, this series is a breath of fresh air. I'm tired of seeing the same teams in the World Series. I don't care who wins as I'm an Angels fan, but I will make an effort to watch. Well, I guess I want the Giants to win a little more. 2002. You guys need one.
homer ass sandiego fan...

I like to see Derek Jeter lose especially in the World Series. I hate the Phillies but i would root for the over the Yankees.

Giants and the Rangers do nothing for me, its a great story for whatever team wins but that story bores me

A) Who cares?

2) He's right, and you shouldn't care.

Whenever sports-talk guys say the ratings will be low, people tend to take it as an insult to their fan base. "How dare you! We got tons of fans!" You don't, though, compared to Yankees, Red Sox, etc. Stop whining and just watch the games. Who cares how many people are watching with you.

My testicles care.
