This is one of those moments that you just have to take a step back and go out of text by writing an article that has nothing to do with the theme of your blog. Being an avid baseball and football fan, I had to take just one of those moments here.
It didn't take long for the magical team known as the Texas Rangers. They are now on there way back to the World Series, for only the second time in their franchise, and for the second time in 2 years the will make World Series history. During last years performance with the San Francisco Giants in a 4 and 1 series, the Texas Rangers with just one win literally just ran out of gas when the big game finally showed up in 2010. This year seems to be different. They are amongst the best in stats amongst all of the teams this year. They have depth as far as pitching. There closers are fantastic. Everything is going well for them.
In the magical game just yesterday against the Detroit Tigers in their 51st season, they proved once again why they deserve to be in the big game. They literally destroyed the Detroit Tigers in a score of 15-5. They are now the American League champions in a six game series of 4 wins and 2 losses. Many people will tell you that they purposly lost their last game to the Detroit Tigers, so so they could come back and with the most important game of the season right at home just for their fans. It was a magical series, especially since guys like Nelson Cruz had yet another big blast, number 3 in the series with the Tigers to help seal their fate for the world series.
Nelson Cruz became the ACLS MVP of the Series with 6 home runs. But with all of the cheers and gears of the season, the target of receiving that special World Series trophy with all of the flags on it seems to be evading the team.
Their challengers in the World Series will be one of two teams from the National League, either the Saint Louis Cardinals with a 3-2 record against there defenders in the series, the Milwaulkee Brewers with a 2-3 record. The Cardinals can clinch the series with the Brewers by a win tonight.
So I'm puting my money on the matchup in the series between The Texas Rangers against Saint Louis Cardinals.
When comparing the two 2011 MLB teams in general, here are some basic facts. People often consider defense, record, offense and pitching. When we compared the two 2011 MLB teams, we found that the Texas Rangers was the overall winner for record, offense and pitching although the St. Louis Cardinals was preferred for defense. Finally, remember that while the Texas Rangers and the St. Louis Cardinals are fairly similar, the best 2011 MLB team for you is ultimately based on who you are and what you're going to do with it. So the facts are that if the series gets down to Texas and St.Louis it should be one heck of a world series, especially for Texas as they have big hitters like Nelson Cruz. The Texas line up came together in the last game of the series with Detroit and literally destroyed them with their offense.
The one goal in the game is to score the most points, and in that regard, not too many teams could touch the Texas Rangers. That's the reason why they made it again to the World Series. Now the only question is, can some other team from the National League do better than them. I'm putting my money on the Texas Rangers, how about you?
