The best of the remaining matchups, the Battle for Missouri will have to be carried by middle American viewership.  Just as we feared a Nationals-Baltimore World Series might go unwatched by everyone outside of Virginia, the coasts may tune out for brawl for control of a certain stretch of I-70.

Fortunately, the Royals keep making diving catches, stealing third, and hitting extra-innings home runs.  Kansas City has banked enough fan equity to guarantee at least decent viewership amongst MLB neutrals.  If the Cardinals can bring even replacement-level viewership to the table, this is the best matchup remaining for MLB and the networks.

If anything, this matchup actually pits two teams that are somewhat reflective of each other – both put up similar results during the regular season (albeit much better bullpen production from the Royals bullpen), and both have magically started blasting dingers on top of continuing to do the little things that allowed them to sneak into the October dance in the first place. Buckle up, trolls.
