Well, I must say I love Football, but I gotta find time to squeeze in the World Series this year. Not only that, but what else is on on Wednesday night right? What a great matchup from the baseball fan's standpoint. If you are a casual fan of the sport, I'm sure you would have love to seen Yankees vs Braves, or RedSox vs Giants or something like that. I am a Red Sox fan but they do have the odd distinction of doubling as a "casual fan" team favorite as well. Great pitching matchups and offense are going to make this a great World Series to watch.
HAVING SAID THAT! I think the Texas Rangers are gonna win this thing 4-2.
I've seen them from the outset this year and they just have way too much firepower for anyone to handle. People think of Josh Hamilton first when they hear the Rangers but Nelson Cruz really carried them to the World Series this year plus they have Michael Young they can use off the bench. The closer being Neftali Feliz doesn't hurt either.
The Cardinals are also a formidable opponent. With bats like Albert Pujols, Matt Holliday, and Lance Berkman they have just as much firepower but when it comes down to it, I don't think they have enough pitching past Chris Carpenter, to do any damage. We will see what happens though, I'm excited for it.
