Clay Travis, Will Cain Talk About MLB’s Expected Ratings Decline on ‘Fox & Friends’

OutKick’s Clay Travis appeared on Fox & Friends this morning with host Will Cain to continue their discussion on MLB’s decision to move its All-Star Game out of Atlanta.

Will asked if Clay expects MLB’s ratings to decline akin to how the NBA’s plummeted this summer when the league embraced Joy Reid-level insanity.

“I don’t think there’s any doubt, Will,” Clay responded. “Baseball took a major body blow with this decision. Rob Manfred’s decision was the most disastrous decision any league commissioner has made in the 21st century.”

Clay goes on, “Baylor-Gonzaga drew 17 million viewers last Monday, that’s two schools without massive national followings. That’s 10 million more than any NBA Finals game. People love basketball, they don’t love woke basketball. Similarly, people love baseball, not woke baseball.

Watch Clay and Will’s full segment here:

The point I want to add is that viewers of mainstream media and ESPN are being told a lie that MLB made the only decision it could have because Georgia’s voting law is unbelievably racist, Jim Crow 2.0, or whatever phrase President Joe Biden used most recently. The media isn’t even given viewers the chance to develop their own opinions. This follows step-by-step Will Cain’s case on his new podcast — which I’ve enjoyed — that the media has moved from simply biased to outright propaganda. The sports media moved there months ago.

You can catch Clay and Will each week on Fox Sports Radio, here is their latest conversation.

  1. I had tuned out of baseball many years ago, would still watch some postseason play, but I’ll find something else to do now. NBA and MLB wilt to the woke minority in the U.S. while happily taking $ from China, a country where nobody has voting rights…oh the hypocrisy. Just keep politics out of sports please!

  2. I think people have found other things to watch and do once the politics was tossed in people just had enough and the lifestyle change I don’t see it going back to sports anytime soon the decline is real and will continue

    • Hardly just NPR. Excepting Fox, none of the MSM networks even hint at anything remotely positive about conservatives or Republicans. Hopefully Newsmax, OAN, and Epoch can become big enough players to offer alternatives.

  3. The problem with NPR is it is funded by taxpayers. There should be no political slant one way or the other. Same with the ACLU. Totally left wing while the public subsidizes it.

  4. I used to love playing and watching baseball as a kid, but as I got older I didn’t watch as much. I still loved postseason games every now and then. I was actually getting back into it after the Braves run last year, but I can tell you that there’s no chance I’ll ever watch again. I loved the NBA and stopped watching it so being on the fence about baseball makes it an easy choice.
