Looks as though we may have something happen that has never happened before......where both the AL and NL teams leading 3 games to 2 after five games in their respective championship series in the same season came back for Games 6 and 7 at home and lost both Games 6 and 7 at home.


Bottom of the 9th starting now in Philadelphia.....4-2 Diamondbacks lead.

Az should create worst ratings in years.

Meh.
It’s ultimately good for baseball to spread it around.
I haven’t paid much attention to the World Series in years, but I might this time around.
One team hasn’t ever won it, the other only once. I like underdogs and I loathe the usual suspects.
The only better scenario would have been a Mariners-Brewers series.

I feel the same way so I'll be watching and hoping for an Arizona win. If Philadelphia had won, I would be done with baseball for the year.

Chicks may dig the long ball but I'm not a chick and I don't dig the long ball.

Glad AZ won, was refreshing to see some small ball. I knew the HR's would dry up for Philly at some point, coupled with good pitching from AZ.

Bryce Harper swinging in the 7th for "hero ball" was funny to see. If it would have been Houston/Philly I would have been done with baseball between the cheating organization that was never punished and the BH/Schwarbs show. The media desperately wanted to make it about BH. Talented player, sure, has had a good POs, sure. but the obsession is a bit much.

And the comment from somebody, presumably from New Jersey of course, (east coast I-95 bias) about AZ and ratings: So what? Do you have stock in MLB?

This theme is one brought up by sports media from time to time, no fans should really be concerned with media market size.... if you like baseball, watch the world series. How does the media market size affect your enjoyment of a baseball game?

the game will grow if they put a good product on the field. It's refreshing to see two teams who had struggled just 2 years ago be in the WS. I guess the media may not be happy about that but oh well.





OK guys, now get off my lawn....

I'm glad Philly lost.

I was hoping for, from the beginning of the playoffs, an Astros/Diamondbacks World Series.

The Rangers are a Texas team, they've never won, they are part of the 'Nolan Ryan universe', and I have a soft spot for Bochy (i'm a 15 year Astros fan, but I've been a Giants and A's fan since the 60s), so I'll be rooting for the Rangers,

I agree (even though I still wish the Astros were there).


I also like that we've seen a lot of 'what can be good' so far overall in the post season.....exciting home runs, good pitching, excitind defense, good base running, etc.

Very well said! Granted, I'm a Dbacks fan and I'm so frigging excited that they made it to the WS, but I don't give a crap about the ratings. Granted, it's not a "sexy" matchup of huge market (and huge spending) teams, but I think it could be a great series. This has been a crazy run by AZ, and I'm thrilled that it's going to continue.

Could be, Philly Mgmt. paid too much money for Turner and Harper, although they'd never admit it.
I don't typically sit still for a full game, but last night I really enjoyed myself! Go DBacks!

I am a chick and I prefer a game of hits vs home runs
I really enjoyed many of the Rangers games this year because that was what they were doing
Putting ball in play and using base runnings to rattle the other team
More exciting to watch by long shot IMO
