2010 Wold Series Preivew:
With a pair of surprising upsets in both the American and National League, there will be no rematch of last year's World Series. After making quick work of the Philadelphia Phillies and the New York Yankees, the San Francisco Giants and the Texas Rangers will meet in an unlikely match-up of two teams who have no world series between them in the last 50 years.
The Rangers used dominant pitching and timely hitting to glide past the Yankees in the ALCS. Cliff Lee has looked close to unhitable in the postseason, and is likely to be the game one starter for Texas. While Lee is the ace, both C.J. Wilson and Colby Lewis have been reliable starters all season long. Offensively, the Rangers are led by MVP candidate Josh Hamilton, who torched Yankee pitching for three home runs.
The San Francisco Giants got hot at the right time to end the season and have used that momentum to carry them to their first World Series since 2002. Two-time Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum leads a deep pitching staff bolstered by the reliable Matt Cain. The offense is a hodgepodge of veterans and young players, but the production of rookie Buster Posey and journeyman Cody Ross has led them to where they are.
