DYING A SLOW DEATH

I haven’t watched one at bat in the baseball postseason and and have no intention of doing so.

If I don’t see it on the highlights, it didn’t happen.

Apparently there are millions and millions of other people doing the same thing.

The NFL is killing MLB in the TV ratings.

NFL regular season games are getting twice what baseball playoff games are getting.

Post season baseball is better than regular season football, if you like baseball.

It’s obvious that fewer and fewer people are interested in baseball.

Think it has anything to do with the fact that it’s October 20th and people are into the things that come with Fall? You know, crisp, sunny days, jackets, football?

People are in the mood for football. It’s in the air.

They might also be into watching the new network shows. Even hockey could be eating away at those ratings. There are a lot of baseball cities that have NHL teams and they all have all their games on local TV.

It’s cold outside and it’s 9:00 before the first inning is over.

This is just another sign that baseball is dying a slow death. It’s going to take a long time, but there aren’t any kids staying up until midnight to watch the Phillie and the Giants.

The best moments of the year are happening when they’re asleep.

Not exactly the best formula for creating new fans.

In a lot of cities, there are entire generations that have not felt like their team was a part or Major League Baseball. When the post season comes, they feel like they’re outside with their noses pressed against the window watching a party and they aren’t invited.

After a while, you walk away and find something else to do.

MLB is a long way from being on its death bed, but the symptoms of a fatal disease have been there for a while.
