So what if ratings for the World Series are in the toilet? Who cares if games are longer than a drive time radio show? I am looking forward to the remaining two or three games, before we put a lid on the 2019 season. Why? Pitching, pitching, pitching.
On paper, and I know games are not played on paper, it shapes up as great pitching matchups. Scherzer vs. Cole, Verlander vs. Strasburg has me remembering pitching match ups of years ago. Yes, things have changed, with hitters purposely fouling off pitches beyond reason to run up the pitch count. I mean, had batters tried that stuff in the old days they would have won a seat on the ground. However, I do think we should have some great games, with nail biting outcomes.
So let the critics harp about ratings and long games, I plan on enjoying what’s left of the 2019 baseball season.
