No, I am saying that, You should remember a short series is not always the best measurement of two ballclubs that have already played, say, one hundred and seventy-five games.
Honestly, I think the Rangers, overall, were a better ballclub than the light-hitting, insanely great starting pitching SF Giants last year. And look what happened, the Giants smoked, waxed, destroyed, whatever you want to say, the Rangers last year.
That is why I am a little bit scared.

The TradMedia is madly in love with St Louis and is picking LaRussa's bunch. The Bill James/Baseball Prospectus crowd is more than narrowly picking the Rangers.
I am going to say it will be a tough series, but one the Rangers should win. That is not a prediction. I am like the aforementioned, James. I cannot make predictions (in any sport) worth anything.
So, I am not about to start today.
