"QUESTION" - "can you name me baseball's highest-ever, TV rated, World Series Game?" ( Answer at the bottom - don't look )....... Its not the first 2 Games of this year's World Series between the Giants and Tigers. This year's the worst ever - down 13% from last year which was "the worst." Predictably Fox, the Network carrying the games, attempted to put a positive spin on things by saying Game 1 ratings were good enough to win the night against rival networks. Fox said the big early-lead by the Giants sent viewers fleeing from the broadcast. They claimed at the start the game was actually out-rating last year's opening, but once the Giants pulled ahead 6-0, the numbers started "dwindling." Game one highlighted the Giants power with third baseman Pablo Sandoval slamming three home runs in three times at bat.

Meme Watch: Everybody Loves Pablo Sandoval

Riding high after their come-from-behind NCLS victory over the St. Louis Cardinals, the San Francisco Giants were not supposed to be able to defeat Justin Verlander and the Detroit Tigers in Game 1 of the World Series.

One Down, Three to Go

Yesterday’s game was all sorts of crazy, and I think that’s best illustrated by the fact that the following sentence is a perfectly valid, accurate arrangement of words: Barry Zito singled off Justin Verlander in the fourth inning to give the Giants a 1-0 lead in Game One of the World Series.
