You've felt or at least noticed it for years. You read the dour reports from the sports media elite. You watch the passionate discussions by TV pundits that contrast with the actual viewership. You find opportunities to get tickets for cheap, but see fewer fans taking advantage in person.
Baseball - the proclaimed America's Pastime - is far from dead, but you keep wondering how it lives despite what doom has foretold it.
On The Exchange, Sumit & Jason are joined by friend of the program, Paulsen of Sports Media Watch as they discuss the struggles of Major League Baseball in the time that should be theirs. They'll delve into the television ratings conundrum (weaker nationally, but stronger than perceived in several cities), the promotional issues and the future of the game as TV product as other games muscle their ways into the sporting conscious.
They will also spend some time on the week in the life of sports media thanks to its coverage and criticism of the newers Houston Rocket, Dwight Howard.
Come through The Exchange in the chat room, on Twitter (@skd_thExchange, @asportsscribe & @paulsen_smw) and on the phone lines at 347-202-0247 or 619-639-4601.
