San Francisco, CA – It’s been eight years since the San Francisco Giants made their last appearance in the World Series. The wait is over, the Giants shocked the world win they beat the Philadelphia Phillies 3-2, game six of the National League Championship Series. Now, the biggest show in baseball returns to San Francisco.
The past three trips to the World Series were unsuccessful as the Giants lost to the New York Yankees in 1962, the Oakland A’s in 1989 and the Anaheim Angels in 2002. This time it’s a different ball club, this young team lacks superstars and marquee players. A strong chemistry, great pitching staff and the will to win best describes the 2010 Giants team.
“This is something you dream of as a kid,” said Cody Ross. “And we’re all in here living the dream, it’s something that no one can take away from us.” “We want to win this just as bad as they do, they’re a great team over there.”
The Texas Rangers make their first appearance to the World Series in their franchise history. This team matches up best against the fierce pitching of Tim Lincecum, Jonathan Sanchez and Matt Cain. The Rangers Cliff Lee was one of the biggest trades this season and a key piece to the Rangers making it this far.
“We can beat you with the long ball,” manager Ron Washington said. “We can beat you with small ball, we can run the bases and play defense.” “No one wants to talk about it but we can pitch too.”
The best two teams in baseball begin their journey and only one will celebrate the victory. The Giants have had three opportunities to get here and now back again their only mission to re-write history. Bay Area get ready, the biggest show is right now and you won’t want to miss it!
