Thoughts, lists and other compulsive bits about baseball from comedian filmmaker television producer/Red Sox fan Paul Francis Sullivan....

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.
