Media outlets have been crowing that Fox is a big loser because the ratings of the Series plummeted.
Seems to me that if the Red Sox won, ratings wouldn't've been a problem. Or even a question.
My dream 2008 Series would be the Dodgers vs. the Red Sox featuring that hall of fame moment right before the game or maybe during the seventh inning stretch when Manny and Papi would run toward each other and jump into an embrace. The crowd would leap to its feet as the cameras zoomed in. Both men would be crying- manly tears, not snot tears- and you'd see Papi's lips making the shapes of "I miss you so much" while Manny smiles his big old smile.
Talk about a ratings goldmine. Of course, the Red Sox would have taken it in five.
I'm just saying.
