Everything on TV is drastically up vs 2020. Covid killed all ratings. The comparable comp for advertisers has been 2019.

SNB is up 4% vs 2019, but Fox is down 16%. The regional games on FS1 are down 11%. The real test will be the ASG and the Playoffs. Regular season is whatever, as long as you are getting in the millions still (which all major leagues are). I couldn't find any comp for MNB or WNB. 

Not a great comp but HR Derby was nicely up from 2019 and biggest since 2017


I was in Cincy Fri and Sat and it was popping and felt great to be back at the ballpark

I wonder if Seattle management even knows what they're doing right now. Made two recent deals. One of them was with the Pirates to get Tyler Anderson, a mediocre but serviceable pitcher. With them really close to a wild card, that move looks like a team shoring up its rotation a bit.

However, their other move was to hand division rival Houston their closer, who'd been excellent recently (and on the season, minus a month-long COVID break). In return, they got a young guy batting about .200 and the washed-up carcass of Joe Smith, pissing off the entire locker room in the process.

MLB Factoid:


General Parking at Dodger Stadium, $50

General Parking at Angels Stadium,  $10


That is all.

This year's rates. I think the Dodgers were $40 in 2019, Angels have been $10 for a few years now.


Lol, it's just the disparity between the two that gives me the SMH.


Both places are fun.

If this is true, Vizquel is one disgusting MFer.

Makes it a lot harder to believe him on the domestic abuse his wife accused him of. 

Unrelated, but its a natural thought process -- doubt we see Vizquels number retired in Cleveland, and his HOF chances are likely dead.
