Game Picks - Saturday: October 30, 2010

The World Series heads to Texas with the Rangers down two games to zip. The game is a rare early one for the post season which means it won't get over until after 10:00 P.M. Eastern Time (thanks Bud for everything <--said with an eyeroll). The Fan has been perfect so far in the World Series and hasn't gotten a pick wrong since the last game of the Rangers - Yankees series. So there is a lot of pressure in this one. For the first time, the Giants will have to contend with being the away team. But they get Sandoval as the DH, which is kind of nifty for them. They get another bat, and a good one at that. But also, for the first time, the Giants won't get a left-hander as the starting pitcher either. So what's the Fan's pick?

- The Rangers over the Giants: The Rangers are too good a team to get swept. Colby Lewis has been the Rangers' best pitcher in the post season not named Lee. Lewis gets the ball to Oliver in the eighth and then, amazingly, Feliz will actually pitch in this World Series.

Month: 42-33
Season: 1369-1048

How great has this Series been already?!? San Fran really did it up right-- Antonio Bennedetto singing God Bless America, Steve Perry leading 'Lights' and, oh yea, the Giants swinging hammers like John Henry and I ain't talking Boston here! Would love to see Texas breakout some old-time country crooners. It's not a Series until you win on the other team's field...

Country crooners? Not my cup of tea, but it would be fitting. Personally, I'd like to see Nolan Ryan throw out the first pitch and knock the catcher on his backside. :)
