Feliz looked [massive understatement]pretty good[/massive understatement] in the 9th.

Much better than O'Day looked in the 8th

Or any Ranger reliever looked in game 2.

I understand that Feliz has much more powerful magnets in his necklace.

So much for the sweep, huh?


I saw a YouTube video earlier today with a Giants fan saying that he wants this to be a real series. A GOOD series. He didn't want a sweep.

And there was a comment under it saying, "be careful what you wish for..."

I'm so pleased that the Rangers won the pennant the the world series does not mean that much to me. It's been good so far and I hope it continues to be a match up.

This is the most important game of the series :

If Giants win, they are on their way to winning the WS and if Rangers win, they have the momentum and another home game to look forward to.

Go Giants!

Couple of observations.

The location of the centerfield camera in Arlington is further to the right than is typical. That means that the strikezone we are seeing is skewed to the left. An inside pitch to a righthanded batter will look like it is across the plate.

Doesn't Mike Maddox look a lot like Frank Zappa?
