And now it is quiet

If the Rangers bats didn't go in hibernation, the 7th Game of the World Series would have been played tonight.

For the 7th straight year, the World Series has failed to go the distance... which is as much of a reason as any for the drop in viewership. Only one of the last 7 World Series even went to 6 games... so it is hard to build up any drama there.

Either way, the World Series has been clinched and the parade to celebrate the champions has been cleaned up.

And now we have no scores to check and empty stadiums.

OK, in places like Oakland, San Diego, Tampa and Miami there are empty stadiums year round, but that's not the point.

It's the off season.
Still a fun time for baseball, but it isn't the same.

I won't lie to you. I already miss baseball.

  1. As a Giants fan, I need a rest...for a few weeks at least..

  2. My grandfather used to say that he hoped every postseason series went the maximum number of games, no matter who he was rooting for. When asked why, he would always respond, "More baseball that way."

    Gonna be a long winter.

  3. The Rangers' bats went into hibernation because the Giants' pitching knocked them out.
