Alright, the Rangers are up 3 games to 1. Who thinks the Yankees will come back to win this series?
The Yankees year in and year out are so resilient and never go down easily. I think they will make a run for it, although facing Cliff Lee in a potential game 7 does not bode well for them. Lee has already established himself as one of the most dominant postseason pitchers of all-time. It will be interesting.
According to Baseball-Reference.com :
the New York Yankees (8818-6449 W-L, 1913 - 2010)
Have won 27 World Championships, 40 Pennants, and 49 Playoff Appearances.
They have done it before they will do it again. . .
The real question is .. what about them *Jets * Jets * Jets*
But in the meantime. ..
Go Rangers!!!!. Let them have it now....let them make history! They have never played in the World Series.. Giants and Rangers will be in for the World Series!
NYY is always there, hard to knock and had proven themselves beyond -- so Yankees give others a chance LOL...
Rangers vs. Giants would certainly be a shocker. If I told someone a week ago that the Rangers and Giants were just a game away from the World Series I don't think many would have believed me. The Giants are up against 3 of the best starters ever to play on the same team. The Rangers are playing in a playoff series with the biggest differential in payroll in baseball history (Yankees are over $200 million, Rangers are around $55 million).
It's an uphill climb, for sure.
But when we're talking Yankees, never say never.
The Giants, on the other hand, had it in their hand and pissed it away last night. I don't hold out a lot of hope for them, frankly. Especially after going back to Philly.
I just saw this forum just now. And obviously we know the outcome. I have two favorite teams,the Angels and anybody that is playing the Yankees. I am quite content right now.
Congratulations to the Texas Rangers. They played their hearts out. And obviously wanted it more.
Just sitting and waiting for the Giants/Phillies showdown.
2 more hours.
Another underdog upset would be soooo cool!
Hey, "my" Sox broke the spell in 2004. Who's to say my Hubby's team can't live the miracle in 2010?
That was a historic win MM, 2004 Sox. yes it is good to beat the number one team the Yankees, Gotta love the underdogs.
Lookin forward to that matchup myself. Tell Hubby Tony sends his best wishes
I was at the game guys! It was absolutely incredible. GO TEXAS RANGERS

Best pitching team in baseball, maybe ever. Cooled the bats of Texas and Philly, and were really awesome.

The Yanks are finally back where they belong in the World Series. They'll be playing against the Phillies on Wednesday after beating the Halos 5-2 in Game 6 of the ALCS tonight. I really thought that the Yanks would beat the Halos in 5 not 6 games but hey, whatever...I realize that a...

Who is your pick to win the series this year?

With baseball teams competing to get the best players they can afford, is it fair that larger market teams can carry astronomical payrolls?
