So after two games of the World Series, the Rangers and the Cardinals are headed to Texas tied not only in games (1-1) but in runs (4-4).
What have we learned?
1. Baseball is dead in America. If a Series as evenly matched as this can't move the viewership needle -- two one-run games that went down to the last out were virtually ignored, judging by the ratings -- it's never going to move the viewership needle again in any appreciative way. Won't matter who's playing.
2, Remember after Game 1, when Tony LaRussa was the Smartest Man In America?
Well, 24 hours later, he's getting second-guessed all over America for pulling his closer, Jason Motte.
Reason No. 1,265 I love baseball.
