WS Ratings suck! Thank you, FOX!

morgan and mccarver provide good commentary for knowledgeable baseball fans. morgan is in the hal of fame and mccarver also has world series rings and spent much of his career catching two of the greatest pitchers in the history of the game in gibson and carlton. thwn major league players fail to do their job in the field or at the plat(get down sac bunt or hit a cut off man to keep runner out otf scoring position) they should be held accountable. the announcer should point this out and good teams are ones which limit these failures. not liking announcers who take issue with these failures is akin to not understanding why some teams win and lose. i understand the 8:30 start time allows for 5:30 viewing on the west coast but i think they are losing more viewers in the east by doing this. these late start times coupled with two teams without a great playoff tradition (yankees, red sox, cardinals, dodgers, etc.) probably has the most to do with lower ratings. enjoy morgan and mccarver while you can, their comments are excellent and if you pay attention you might learn something from two guys with 4-5 thousand actual major league games under their belts!!!
