I used to watch the game of the week. For decades, when the fall came, I followed the pennant races and the World Series. But by the time the World Series started, I had a feel for the teams, some of the key players. Even if it wasn't my favorite teams, I'd find someone to root for.
Now MLB has sold their birthright to the cable channels. I haven't seen a game all season. I don't know a single player. Only knew the Mets were in it because they swept the Cubs. All the games so far were on channels I don't get. Now the last seven are on Fox. I have the television on, but really, without the pennant races and the build-up, how can MLB expect me to be interested?
They need to get this sport back in front of all the fans throughout the season.
I'm going to go cruise the menu on Netflix.
