Texas Rangers are on their way to their 1st World Series!

And the Yankees are checking out tee times. As a diehard Red Sox fan, I did not want to see the Yankees on their way to yet another World Series. The Yankee fan with whom I am in 3 bands also happens to be a San Francisco Giants fan and pointed out that the Giants might fare better against the Yankees, as Rangers’ catcher Bengie Molina knows the Giants’ pitching staff all too well. Nonetheless, I remain steadfast in my loyalty to any team who plays against the Yankees.

The Rangers took the ALCS deciding game tonight, beating the Yankees 6-1, and took the series 4 games to 2 to win their 1st ever American League Championship.

Giants next to qualify?

I still have no idea why I have been a Giants fan since the late 60’s, so the only thing left to make this season complete (short of going back in time and pulling all the Red Sox players out of the lineup in which they were injured), is for the Giants to beat Philadelphia tomorrow night. The Phillies most recently have been to the World Series in 2008 and 2009, beating Tampa Bay in 2008. I maintain, along with most of the rest of SF Bay Area baseball fans, that this is the year that the San Francisco Giants finally win a World Series. The last time the Giants won a World Series was in 1954, when they were the New York Giants. They are suffering the 3rd longest World Series championship drought, behind the Cubs and the Indians, so why not the Giants this year?

This is it! The Texas Rangers finally got their ticket to the World Series 2010! and fans start also to get their Texas Rangers Tickets It was no walk in the park. To get to the 2010 World Series the Texas Ranges had to go through a seemingly impossible line of tough baseball teams.

Ticketwood looks and smells of spam, but I allowed it to post as while the stRangers may be the favorites in this year's WS, the Giants had to get past the Braves and the Phillies to get there. They're clicking at the right time and they got past 2 good NL clubs to get there.
