Plus, people were speculating back in '06 (or whenever the last TV contracts were being negotiated) that "by the next time MLB has to negotiate new TV deals, they're going be worth so much less, etc." Not. Even. Close. They are worth more now than they have ever been before. Heck, even look at the worth of some of the local TV deals now.

Love some intelligent baseball discussion.
I was one of those pointing out how popular football has become, but you are correct. There are many and varied reasons why the WS seems less relevant and has the ratings to prove it.
