Ratings are down vs last year and way down from the Cubs' World Series appearance two years ago.

But as far as the "buzz" surrounding this WS that was originally questioned, the ratings are fine.  WS Games 1 and 2 were the most watched TV shows on both cable and network schedules on Tue/Wed nights.  More people were watching the WS than anything else on TV those two nights.  People are talking about it on the radio and Sirius XM, people are posting about it on social media, and television sources like ESPN, Fox and MLBN are covering it.

I'm not disputing that.

I'm just also pointing out that factually speaking coach99 did not make this up. Rating are in fact down. Vs 2016 it absolutely makes sense (Cubs have a large following as well as a neutral viewership much like the 2004 Red Sox that made them sentimental favorites). Vs last year it is difficult to say, but the variable imo is not the Red Sox replacing the Astros (because the Sox have a larger national following as well as likely more East Coast interest) but rather the other variables relating to the Dodgers  (LA flat out isn't as good, LeBron is stealing I'm sure some market share alone, and the Rams being Superbowl favorites I'm sure has fans focusing more on them as well).

I think the 3 true outcomes philosophy of teams going for walks, strikeouts or home runs has lost an older generation of fans and added a younger generation. So by Buzz I feel like people my fathers age (mid 60s) simply donít see baseball as entertaining any longer. My dad was a big baseball fan growing up while I wasnít. Now itís the opposite if he watches 5 Pirates game a year Iíd be surprised but he doesnít miss a hockey game. Iím in my 30s and I love baseball but as a kid I preferred any other major sport to it.

Not disputing the breakdown of technical television stats and analytical numbers.  Just saying you can't say there's no buzz surrounding THIS World Series (which was the original post, even before any ratings were brought up) because not as many people watched as compared to 2016.

when i said 'no buzz"..I did not even consider tv.  There was little that heard people talking about or saw posted .  Just seems like it was so-so.    Does middle America care that much about Boston and LA in general?  The Houston and Chicago games just seemed to draw more attention. I just made a comment...not worth analyzing..cause I really could care less about anything about LA or Boston.   Nice to see  Freese playing in WS...funny looking back on his spring training comments where he wound up.

Yes! Happy for the Dodgers! Big win for them. I had to go to sleep so I missed the ending.

I finally watched the rest of it thanks to DVR. What a game and what an atmosphere at Dodger Stadium.

Unrelated but I love Dodger Stadium definitely on my bucket list.

Yes..Chavez Ravine still a great ball park that has been kept up well.  Was it privately funded when built?

Red Sox won last night 9-6 after the Dodgers blow a 4-0 lead

Boston up 3 games to 1 and it looks to be all but over for the Dodgers

Iím not sure about the structure itself. But the land was given to the Dodgers by local government. It displaced quite a few people.
