ongbok: Wasn't the Yankees/Mets World Series one of the lowest rated television broadcasted World Series? That is what I heard anyway.
ElwoodCuse: CastorTroy: mactheknife: I grew up watching the likes of Stargell, Robinson, Sanguillen and Ott at Three Rivers Stadium.I've endured 105 loss seasons, Jason Thompson, Dale Berra, George Hendrick and "Operation Shutdown."For the past two decades, the team has been woefully mismanaged both on and off the field.Call me if they're in first place on September 1st and I'll get excited. Until then, I'm not falling into the trap I've fallen into countless times before.Why not just enjoy the possibility of the Bucs finishing the season over .500 for the first time in 20 years? Geez Louise.If at this point the Pirates finish 82-80 but don't even get into the phony baloney one game playoff, Pirates fans should be just as angry as ever
FuLinHyu: Lost Thought 00: Frederick: A Pittsburgh / Oakland World Series would be great for the underdog small market teams.True, but if we get that far I want to kick the snot out of one of the big boys./I have no idea how to handle a playoff series coming to town, and neither does anyone elseDon't be so sure, I was 22 the last time Pittsburgh was this good (and in the playoffs) and still remember the '79 series (as both the Pirates and Steelers won that year, I was 9).Us old farts remember and it'll be great if we get some new memories this year.
UNC_Samurai: Man On A Mission: Frederick: A Pittsburgh / Oakland World Series would be great for the underdog small market teams an utter disaster for MLB and television ratings.FTFY.And this is why the sport is in trouble.You don't hear people talking about what matchup would give the best market for the Super Bowl.
