I’m quoted a few times in Richard Sandomir’s article about the YES network’s declining ratings this seaso n:
As a corporate progeny of the team, YES needs spectacular, star-driven winning as its business rationale. Fans have come to expect the same.
This season might have stripped YES’s Yankees viewership to its core viewers, without casual and fair-weather fans.
“It’s like the N.B.A. after Michael Jordan,” said Alex Belth, the founder of the Bronx Banter blog. He added: “There is an apathy that takes place when a team is so successful for so long. And this coincides with the end of the Jeter-Rivera era.”
Not to rub it in or nothing but it sure was nice to see ol’ Russell Martin hit two homers last night wasn’t it?
