I predicted five or six games. Problem is, I got the winner wrong.
Great series by the San Francisco Giants for their first World Series championship (since the move, obviously). I kept watching guys like Aubrey Huff and Freddy Sanchez, who spent so much of their careers playing good baseball on bad teams.
On a Yankees note, Rangers CEO Chuck Greenberg appologized for his remarks from earlier in the day: “Earlier today, in the course of praising the extraordinary support and enthusiasm of Texas Rangers fans, I unfairly and inaccurately disparaged fans of the New York Yankees. Those remarks were inappropriate. Yankees fans are among the most passionate and supportive in all of baseball.”
For whatever it’s worth, I really do fear the beard.
