Sox vs Dodgers. Old Timers love it for the history of the teams, everyone else loves it for the "Return of Manny".

The highest ratings in my own household would be the Phillies vs. whoever.

New York and Los Angeles...the #1, and #2 TV markets.

LA has to come out of the National League for ratings. ESPN does not like Philadelphia at all.

New York or Boston has to come out of the American League, with the Yankees obviously having more of an impact.

If none of those teams make it the ratings will be pretty poor

 No question the drama would be thick with NY vs. LA.....

Yankees and Dodgers for sure!  A classic rivalry with a new twist (Joe Torre as the DODGERS Manager) and the two BIGGEST markets in the Country!

The ratings will suck no matter who is playing.  MLB has marketed their game to be regional and not national.  For the last 15 years they have been telling fans they don't care about any team other than their favorite team.

The national popularity of the game is a fraction of what it once was.

Yankees and Dodgers.... but it's going to be Yankees & Phillies with the Yankees winning. They remind me of the 1961 Powerhouse!

 I agree with everyone who is saying Yankees vs. Dodgers...... seeing Joe Torre come back to NY .... and the more games the Dodgers won in the series, the higher the ratings would go.

Of course I would be pulling for the Dodgers to win..... I would love to see Joe Torre win and get revenge since I think he really was done wrong in NY.

Unfortunately, it looks like it will be the Phillies vs. the Yankees and the ratings will suck...... I have absolutely no interest in that series and I think a of people feel like I do.  You will have all the Yankees fans and Phillies fans tuning in but not a lot of others.... like people are saying.... really no drama......

I disagree somewhat with you on this!  I think that ALOT of people would watch that series because ALOT of people HATE the Yankees and would be pulling for the Phillies to beat them.

With both SoCal teams down 3-1, I fear the ratings on the other matchups will be ZERO, since they won't take place!
