Unpredicted match-up great for the game. World Series in November violates Nature's Law. And will we ever again see a World Series day game?

The Networks, media and casual big market fans are short-sighted in their desire for the same big market match-ups such as the Yankees vs. well anyone. Although ratings may have been higher this year, the growth of the sport outside of the front-runner fans suffer. How many more Yankee fans can there be? Growth is in the under-served teams. If there is no hope those teams and baseball will decline. The late 90's and early 2000's were no fun. Baseball shouldn't be 50% Yankee fans and 50% Yankee haters with nothing else to root for. BTW Go Rangers and their $55m payroll which is sure to increase greatly this offseason.

Which ball is this? Brown or white? Tiny, medium, or big? Pointed or spherical?

One would think that on weekends, when baseball has the entire day to broadcast without having to worry about a late start to accomodate people getting from work on the West Coast, that they would schedule games at more family friendly times than during the week. Instead, no game on Friday (when kids can stay up), and the latest start of the entire series on Sunday, when kids have to go back to school the next day. The entire day Sunday to broadcast a game and instead they wait until 8:30 at night to start. Foolish.
