So much for a long hiatus. One last post:
I am picking Texas to win in five games. Unlike the Phillies, they have a lot of hitters who aren't timid about swinging. San Francisco won't find such an accommodating opponent in this round.
This is a tough choice for me because I loathe all things Texas having "done" two years time there. I've always said if one spent two years out of a given life in Texas and all he remembered fondly was the grapefruit, it wasn't a good sign. Still, the Giants are a team that is very easy to dislike and I am always obliging.
