WBC: November is Better

WBC Ratings

With the World Baseball Classic over and Japan the winners again for a second time, the viewer ratings came out. 1.3 average rating for the WBC on ESPN up to the semifinals. A 37.8 rating in Japan for their first-round games. Interesting.

November is Better

One thing that must be pointed, and as I said in the past, November is much better for the World Baseball Classic. I wrote about this back in January and again, with the platform of MLBLogs, reiterate that the timing of this was not good. My mind was put to rest when Chipper Jones told Long Island Newsday that the “Classic should be moved to the fall.” His main concern, as is mine, is that the players are in “game-shape” and “injuries will probably be minimal.

All I ask is that the Classic is kept alive and going, but just move it to November after the World Series.

It will be a homerun for everyone.

Until then, see ya at the park!

    A November move would be good to reduce the risk of injuries for the season – but do you think that fewer major leaguers will play after just having finished the season? I really don’t know when the best time to hold it is – I would just like to see it continue!

    I think that is what they should do but the reason why they aren’t is because any player that was in the World Series has a advantage over a player who hasn’t for a month because their team didn’t make it.
