An example of that sentiment was provided by Bryant Gumbel on HBO's "Real Sports. "I will admit up front to some bias, and I'll certainly understand if the folks in Anaheim would beg to differ, but having the Yankees in the World Series is clearly in the best interest of Major League Baseball," Gumbel said.
