The Giants and the Rangers. For people who don’t care that much about baseball and aren’t a fan of either team, a big shrug, right?
But if you like really good baseball and the multi-layered aspect of the game, this is a series for you. What these teams lack in star power outside of big names Josh Hamilton, Tim Lincecum and Cliff Lee, they make up for in gumption and baseball smarts.
There’s a cliche that baseball isn’t a team game, but rather a bunch of individuals doing their own thing who are on the same team. That may be true to some extent, but it’s also been said often that the 2010 Giants and Rangers are both collections of players that put it on the line for their teammates, and that’s why they’re the final two teams standing.
It will be fun to watch. I’m saying the Giants take it in 6 or 7 games, only because they have more pitching depth.
