Fox covers Yankees, ignores mayor

Thoughts on Game 6:

Another generally solid outing for Fox, especially Tim McCarver, now headed for his 20th World Series as an analyst.

And another thorough, champagne-soaked postgame by YES.

Sunday night's TV MVP, though, is Fox's Kenny Albert, who showed up in the winning clubhouse after having called the Vikings-Steelers game earlier in the day.

Then he kept his focus on relevant interview subjects - i.e. people who play for the Yankees - while ignoring mayor Michael Bloomberg, who hovered for several minutes, seemingly hoping Albert would ask him something - anything! - before Election Day.

Will share ratings info for the Yankees and Giants when I get it.
