I realize the networks and advertisers are disappointed the Yankees aren’t in the Fall Classic but frankly it’s a breath of fresh air to have some new blood playing in Nov.
Plus wasn’t it an absolute pleasure to watch the yanks and Phils die back-to-back on strike 3 looking.
Generally BMF falls strictly by the partisan lines of NL over AL no matter what the WS match-up is, although this year I gotta say I sorta like Texas.
I don’t dislike the Giants per say, but I can’t say I’m rooting for then. Their pitching is formidable but in my opinion they just don’t have enough offense to warrant that WS trophy.
The Rangers are an exciting team - and they just feel more like a team worthy of World Series Champs - game 1 loss not withstanding. They’ve certainly had their fair share of “Met years” by spending a crapload of money for subpar squads. But now they sorta kick ass.
Weird to see Lee get lit up like that. I guess maybe he was nervous? Or just off his routine?
But I’m guessing he’ll be lights out again in game 4.
