Complete coverage of your AL Champion Texas Rangers

Look Out San Fran, Here We Come

You have a beard. Big deal. We have a freakin' claw!

    So your Texas Rangers arrived in San Francisco Tuesday, and were greeted politely by a bunch of old dudes playing trumpets outside their hotel all night? Big deal.

    That's the headline in San Francisco today, as if their fans think they are going to give their little offensively inept team a chance to win their city's first World Series? That isn't going to happen, because this city is going to be the one to win it all.

    DFW is the City of Champions, especially compared to your little rinky-dink place full of hippies. Cowboys-Niners? Cowboys. Stars-Sharks? Stars.

    If you're looking for something to rally behind in your time of desperation, I guess you can go rally behind your bearded closer who looks like he probably drives a late 70s model van with no windows in it. He likes to call himself "The Machine," huh?

    So you're two biggest stars are "Fear the Beard" Brian Wilson (wasn't he the drugged up Beach Boy?) and "The Freak"?

    We have "The Natural" and Elvis.

    Speaking of "The Natural", here is exclusive video of Josh Hamilton laying the smack down on your little 5-4 pitcher.

    Other than your ace and your closer, who the hell else do you have? A rookie catcher, who replaced our seasoned veteran, who is without a doubt striking fear into the heart of every Giants fan with his unmatched knowledge of your "awesome" pitching staff. Oh, and Aubrey Huff? Ha!

    Who do we have? Well, let's see, there's the AL Comeback Player of the Year, the soon-to-be AL Rookie of the Year, the soon-to-be AL MVP and the best postseason pitcher in baseball. Look, just to be fair and diplomatic, we'll give you one last chance to swap bandwagons. You still have a few hours.
