It’s down to four. Here’s who I want to see in the World Series…Texas and the Giants. Here’s who I think will be in the World Series…Philly and NY. I’m a big Ron Washington fan, a big Clint Hurdle fan, and I love the way the Rangers play. They’re going to have to pitch their butts off though.
And I really love the mash up of misfits that the Giants run out on the field. Obviously their pitching is fantastic, but how that group of position players came together and got this far is amazing. It makes Brian Sabean look like a genius.
The reality though is New York is New York. Their second string team is probably better than the Giants. And Philly is going to feature Halladay, Oswalt, and Hamels on the bump. If I had to bet the farm, I’d bet on these two teams. One thing we can pretty much bank on in both series is that we’re going to see some pitching. The year of the pitcher is going out with a bang.
As a side note, I’ve taken a position with the San Diego Padres as their greater Los Angeles area scout. I feel like I have a pretty good knowledge of the game, but not a whole lot from a scouting perspective. I’m looking forward to learning how to evaluate players and this new chapter in my baseball adventure. See you at the ballpark.
