    Usually those who say that baseball is dying conveniently forget that, in 1994, it actually was in trouble. So this is all very interesting.

    It’s awesome that USA-Portugal kicked butt in the ratings. It’s lame if people think that represents anything meaningful about baseball or other sports.

    A story about Twitter engagement with televised sports shows that (a) half of all Twitter comments about TV shows are sports-related; but (b) baseball lags the other sports: One league that should be somewhat concerned, however, is Major League Baseball. In addition to the fourth-worst television ratings in history, the 2013 World Series failed to…

    Every fall, like clockwork. These are becoming more ubiquitous than BSOHL stories during spring training: And of course totally vapid and ill-informed about the economics and nature of baseball.

    Saying that the NFL is more popular than baseball is both (a) true; and (b) old hat. It has become such an obvious thing that I didn’t even blink when I heard Frank DeFord say it for the ten millionth time just this morning, and most of what Frank DeFord says drives me kinda bonkers. But how…

    Another one of these? Sheesh: “The National Game has begun to topple from its ancient pedestal, as the one-time fervid fans turn to new sports…” As you know, I really get sick of this kind of thing.
