Is it any wonder that nobody paid any attention to the World Series? (Won by the Phillies, in case you hadn’t heard.)
The games were all on at night. They started late at night, even when not delayed by rain. One game started after 10:00 p.m.
Tim McCarver is and always was the color announcer from hell. I heard Jack Buck do baseball games. His son is no Jack Buck.
None of the following were in the Series: Yankees, Mets, Red Sox, Dodgers. Which means that the average sports fan who only gets to see national games during the regular season had little if any opportunity to see these two very good teams play and get to know them.

P.S. — I don’t understand why NBC doesn’t have a Sunday night NFL game during the World Series. It would get higher ratings even if it was the Lions vs. Raiders. And, after all, aren’t ratings what pro sports are all about?
