Major League Baseball expected to earn a record seven billion this year all told by the San Francisco Texas match up in this year's World Series well might not have been wet.
Lot of fans were looking for.
-- again one is in the books and I'm -- talk about the game because the giants -- my ranges eleven to seven last night.
-- the series but ultimately he can hear behind our -- -- moved from a marketing perspective.
You've got it and I'm sure that the television -- -- everybody wanted Phil -- And New York instead you Texas out west in San Francisco even further out west -- these aren't small markets necessarily but the media market perspective they aren't that.
-- -- -- -- -- -- Let's put over -- -- buddies that -- -- at -- author Robert W president they're very global sports sorry you're operating is that so much to navigate.
-- it from from a marketing perspective will keep it at that Brett Dallas seven Disco it's not quite New York or Philadelphia.
Now -- it's not and if you look at it whenever the Yankees have played in the World Series or even when the Phillies -- if you looked at the number of total viewers.
He had something along the lines around twenty million that you're pretty much guarantee you gonna get with the Yankees in right now I'd be surprised if they break.
What are the sub stories that might lure people such as myself.
Who really have no clue what's going on -- Major League -- -- anything that you know what why someone again like me but I don't want to watch.
Well for someone like you and you have to sit next to a guy like this he likes the Rangers you might want to root for the giants and good but no -- really I think is gonna pull people win in this series is.
These two teams in terms of the Rangers and the giants are not the big money teams like the Yankees the Phillies.
They don't have so to speak to superstars at their paying tons of money too but I -- your big but but but but what's good about these two teams and I think what really is gonna bring people in this really about you know just hard working in in people getting in there and you know they're not major media markets they are top ten but at the end of the day it's not New York.
It's not Boston it's -- Philadelphia why -- the market even matter.
If he stays and he does it say something about the popularity of baseball perhaps weaning that it's not like -- Super Bowl which is virtually national holiday be safe yet that that's a great point because with the Super Bowl it doesn't matter who's playing you're getting the viewers thinking they're watching deals.
300 million plus in Spain itself when you look at the World Series it's very localized it's it's people who follow baseball sort of they're gonna watch.
But it's a lot of doubt that individual passion for those teams and there's more people in New York there's more people in Philadelphia that's why you see the numbers you know so so to speak go higher when a team like that's going.
-- from a Jersey sales had sales all those types of things.
I mean how much is a team like Texas.
See that number go up because there in the World Series and maybe somebody in Detroit or Ohio that does get a chance to be exposed that he's now done stick that's and.
Another great point the fact is that any team that's in this series or any team that plays well into the playoffs.
They're gonna see their licensing their jerseys you know you -- whatever it might be.
That's going to increase in what Major League Baseball wants in this case is they want more games the more games the more advertising they sell the more jerseys that are sold.
The more people who are able to watch the World Series all right so what else session we expect here -- is.
This one likely to draw new fans.
I think so I I think we're in for a great series although Texas did lose the first game I do you think they're gonna they're gonna make it back and they're gonna play you know in terms of 67 games I really think.
At the end of the day what happens is -- you want to see and what Major League Baseball wants to see.
Is -- good series that goes six or seven games because it captures the interest to them.
Football labor problems the NBA labor problems and what's gonna happen here over the next year does that help baseball.
If baseball can you lump them into that group as well because at this time next year we may have no NBA and no football watch that'll be a disaster.
You know in terms of being a sports fan terms -- who likes and wants to follow sports in the business side of it.
Baseball has its own issues coming up remembering the exit of Barry Bonds trial as is going to be coming into effect so.
Everyone is looking at something but certainly if there's no football.
And if we see what happens in football in the NBA.
Then baseball -- -- they're -- -- be the ones who benefit from this is my wants an economics question for you with its jobless rate elevated or more people watching baseball these days you had.
That's it's that.
That very well could be you know the thing is baseball's done considerably well there's been less people watching over the last few years just in terms of the total amount of people.
But you know that can be attributed to you obviously looking at you know in terms of the recession.
And and also in terms of attending games that numbers down as well but I think you know for the fact that now you're looking at it we're coming out of a recession.
-- more people might be going to the ballpark.
Thank you and HI that I came back again and he got the bucks I -- got to give you -- good to see him as a great.
