MLB Is Rooting For Tampa

I wrote about this a couple of weeks ago, the stupidity of having two different schedules between the LCS and the World Series.  Now, it has bit baseball in the ass big time.  Because they use a 2-3-2 with only two days off in the World Series, MLB has to do everything they can to get games in despite the weather.  That led to Game 3 starting after 10pm on the East Coast Saturday night and nobody watched.  The game pulled in a 6.1 which is the lowest rating for a Series game ever.  Fans waiting for sports went elsewhere since Saturday night is loaded with college football. Through the first four games, the ratings are only an 8.5.  If the Phillies finish things off tonight, this will definitely be the lowest-rated World Series ever, so I would bet MLB is rooting for Tampa tonight.
