October Baseball: Go, Rangers!

With the Reds out of the playoffs, I am in search of a new rooting interest. Fortunately, I didn't have to look very far. Rangers all the way!

Not many will expect Texas to stand a chance at taking out the Bronx Bombers but I say all the more reason to pull for them. As everyone who followed the last round knows, the Rangers had never before won so much as a postseason series, let alone a league pennant. 49 years is plenty long enough to wait.

It would also be wonderful to see the story of Josh Hamilton's season last just a little bit longer. The team's ginger ale tribute to him after the ALDS win was just way cool. He did not have the best series at the plate: 2 for 18, a .111 batting average. Boy, it would be great to watch him and his teammates take out the mighty Yanks!
