    As for ratings. Kids don't watch baseball anymore. (They watch way less sports in general than previous generations). It's become a regional view like hockey has always been, folks (mainly old Wobbie like folks) just watch their home team. Long gone are the days of big national audiences when there was Monday Night Baseball and such. The "big" national weekly game, ESPN Sunday night draws like 1.5 million viewers on a good week.
    So, ratings overall are in steady steep decline, and these 2 teams will do nothing to stem that tide.
    Correct.

    Yeah I think baseball has morphed to being much more of a home town thing over the years. Majority of fans don't care too much about teams outside of their own market.
    I’ll watch almost ANY MLB. it’s my favorite sport and, even tho some people bitch that it’s “boring” (which I never thought anyway), the new rules have improved what it was turning into. I will watch random hockey, too, because it is such a great, no bullshit sport. NBA, I will only watch my Jazz and maybe some playoffs (not a lot of overlap there).

    I know the NFL is the grandaddy, but I’m kind of losing interest….I think soccer sucks but at least that “football” keeps moving and isn’t, what, like 4 minutes of actual action over three hours? endless commercials; endless reviews, etc.
    I'm the same way. I watch minor league games, college games, etc...I just truly love watching the game that I've loved since I was a little kid. I wish I could still play it, but rec softball will have to do! Ha! I also play fantasy baseball and it's a really fun way to get into other players and teams.

    I agree on the NFL. I still play fantasy, but only watch it here & there until the playoffs. I'm the same way with the NBA. I do enjoy college FB & BB, though. March is easily my favorite sports month with the tourney and spring training going on (yes, I watch those games too).

    I enjoy watching hockey and soccer quite a bit. If we had hockey in TX when I was growing up, I would've played for sure.

    I enjoy playing golf, but barely watch it. I enjoy watching tennis sometimes.

    All that to say, I'm looking forward to watching the series.
    I LOVE MUSIC.

    The Diamonbacks were ably backed by right fielder Corbin Carroll and second baseman Ketel Marte.

    Very impressive showing by the Diamondbacks. Perhaps the most impressive achievement was getting to the bottom of the ninth before 11 pm on the East Coast.
