    Maybe my thoughts were a tad off base...

    May have to rewrite my title.... Texas very well could win it all.... I hope not.

    Re: I can make one accurate prediction tonight, Texas will see no World Series win

    I think they are obviously a good team but they don't have experience in the playoffs which is where the bullpens are so much better, especially NY and Philly. Haven't seen much of San Fran this season to judge but I expect a few 1-0 games in that series.
    Beware the Bobcat!!!

    C.J. Wilson had this game in the bag, and the bullpen proceeded to demolish it in one inning.
    This isn't September anymore, Washington can't go to 10 plus pitchers in this series and as tonight showed, that means he and Texas are in big trouble IMO.
    It was one game, and is by no means indicative of what would happen in other games.

    SF's lineup is practically AAA. I doubt they'd be favored over Texas, should it happen.

    The Giant's lineup is better than you think and besides, that pitching staff could be lethal.

    Somehow, Ron Washington got high enough to lose a playoff game when had 5-0 lead and never even bring in his best relievers.

    If we weren't down 7-2 tonight...We could have messed up their bullpen. But coming back from 5 runs dont happen every day

    very true
    The real reason why the Yankees keep winning is cause the other team can't stop staring at the damn pinstripes

    Indeed it doesn't..... we can't play every game by playing catch up.
    IMO,what I said earlier still stands. Texas bullpen will be their Achilles's heel.

    San Francisco is going to the World Series and would
    proceed to eat Texas for breakfast, should they beat us.
