Texas is on a hot streak like Philly was in 2008. They beat two of the three best teams in the Majors to get to the Series and made the Yankees series look kinda easy. There were a TON of good pitchers in the playoffs this year and the Rangers didn't seem to have any trouble hitting. I would not bet against them.

I have no horse in this race but LOVE the fact that the network hates this matchup. Good for sf and tx. Should be a fun series!

I'm not so sure about that. Supposedly, the ALCS had a 30% larger audience this year than last year and the Yankees played in both series. I find it a bit puzzling that a series involving the Rangers would draw than many people compared to one in which a Los Angeles team played, but maybe folks actually do like to root for (and watch) the underdog in a series that the otherwise have no stake in. While the Ranger's turnaround may not inspire the same level of reaction as the 2004 Red Sox (only the Cubs winning in that fashion might be as big a story because the White Sox winning after all those years was not) or the Miracle Mets, it is clearly in the same neighborhood as the Rays run in 2008.

I can guarantee you there will be a lot of people in NC watching if for no other reason than Josh Hamilton. Glad to see he's finally getting to the WS.

San Francisco is close enough. That place reminds me of the old joke about London that goes "the most miserable winter that I ever spent was a summer in London."
