being a Mets fan, I was pulling for the Giants for two reasons, one being I can't stand the Phillies and two the Giants have NY roots (heck my team even wears the Giants old NY logo on their hats) and then the Rangers taking out the Yankees was a bonus!

San Francisco Giants have done a great job to get this far. But I just don't think their offense is any match for the Rangers offense which destroyed the Yankees in the previous round. In order to win a World Series, you have to be able to score runs. Good pitching alone doesn't guarantee a championship. As good as Tim Lincecum is, Cliff Lee is still better. I think he is 9-0 to begin a post season career, trailing only the great Orel Hershisher and he may tie him at the end of Game 1. And yes, Matt Cain is a solid starting pitcher but his team usually doesn't give him enough run support.

The Giants are not a team that scores lots of runs on the opponent and this could prove to be costly for them. The Giants are going to compete of course and they will put a little scare into the Rangers but it won't be enough. They will have to beat Cliff Lee twice and somehow manage to beat one of the other starters to win the series and I just don't see that happening. Rangers will win in six games.

Giants beat Halladay and he threw a no-hitter in the post season.

Wow. Let me see here, so I can understand this. San Francisco, which is the United States beacon for liberalism and socialism. A city which hides illegal aliens, gives criminals all the breaks in the world, wants free money for everyone, a 30 hour work week, etc.

And they are celebrating this? Let me see here. How much money is being WASTED on the World Series. MILLIONS of dollars. Those millions could be going to what: Oh, how about all the foreclosures in the People's Republik of Kalifornia? How about paying for childcare? Healthcare? How much food could be purchased for hungry, needed persons?

The World Series is a waste of money and resources. So are ALL major sports. All that money WASTED; it could be used in much better ways.

That big ol' wet blanket you're tossing around just isn't quite big enough or wet enough Phil. We're still damn happy, but feel free to fume some more if it makes you happy in some odd, perverse way.

Wet blanket? Remember that the next time you want to increase my taxes, for some BS social program of yours.

7 million a year for some moron to hit a ball with a piece of wood. You idiots don't mind paying 9 bucks for a beer, 9 bucks for a hot dog, and 250 bucks for a seat. But, raise your taxes .25 percent to increase the pay for the teachers who teach your children, the fireman who put out your fires and rescue you, the police officers who save your life, etc and you go through the roof.

Professional sports has no socially redeemable value and should be banned. The money WASTED for these morons, should be used for the social programs, you want and make me pay for.

This is just one more example of the hypocritical aspect to San Francisco. You liberals want and want and want everyone else to pay for it. Want to balance the budget? Ban this waste of money...

You are such an over dramatic crybaby. You live in Dublin, get over yourself you miserable whiner. Nobody is forcing you to go to the games or watch them. Sit in your boring suburb and complain to yourself. Nobody cares about you sharing you misery.
