How to Fix MLB's Regular Season, Playoffs and Future
Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports
S.F. Giants win the 2012 World Series

So that's how the season ends, not with a bang but a thud

That was a bad World Series. Please save the hate mail San Francisco. I am not picking on your team, you guys played well. The Tigers? Not so much.

What started off as a great postseason led up to a deadly dull World Series. The matchup between two evenly matched teams in the series never lived up to it's billing.

Baseball was in desperate need of some World Series magic, something to make this October memorable, but it never materialized.

Unless you are a San Francisco Giants's fan, the World Series had to leave you want wanting.

The fans wanted something compelling, something exciting. I'm sure it is in the moment, but it is hard for me to recall a worse World Series.

And it is not just me, reports on this series have said that the Series has gotten record low television ratings.

It's time to address the elephant in the room: baseball's image and generation problem.

Baseball is making plenty of money, specifically pointed out in this Forbes article by Mike Ozanian, it's just not making enough new fans to sustain the sports viewership moving forward.
