MLB 11 The Show Picks Rangers in Six



    MLB 11 The Show simulation of the World Series gives it to the Rangers in six games. (Published Wednesday, Oct. 19, 2011)

    Need another reason to believe this is the year for a Texas Rangers World Series victory? Digital versions of your Texas Rangers won a simulated version of the World Series in MLB 11 The Show.

    The series was simulated by Sony on their PlayStation 3 console and they sent video and photos of the virtual victory to get our hopes up.

    In the simulated series, the Cardinals won Games 1 and 3, while the Rangers took Game 2 and a three game winning streak of 4, 5, and 6 to close out the series.

    Nelson Cruz was named the series' MVP due to clutch home runs that took Games 4 and 5.

    We have some faith in the "simulated sports" angle -- after all, we're simming the Cowboys season -- and when matched with the predictions by many sports analysts, Game 6 looks like a good end point.
