The Giants Win the Championshp

After winning the American League pennant, our team, the Texas Rangers, lost the fifth and final game of the 2010 World Series to the San Francisco Giants last night in Arlington, Texas. The bat of Jewish second baseman Ian Kinsler, which had been so hot through the divisional series and championship series against the Tampa Bay Rays and the New York Yankees, fell quiet, but then again, so did those of his teammates: In arguably the most pitching-dominant year since 1968, the Giants’ staff, led by ace Tim Lincecum (who won Games 1 and 5), held the Giants to merely 12 runs in five games (and seven came in Game One, which they lost). Congratulations to Kinsler and the whole Rangers organization, including (apparently Jewish) general manager Jon Daniels. But most of all, congrats to the Giants for their first championship since 1954 and their first in San Francisco since forever.

I’ve been browsing on-line greater than 3 hours these days, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is beautiful value enough for me.
