World Series-Bound!

Batting 6th, Ian Kinsler was 1-2 with 1 BB, 1 double (his 1st of the postseason), 1 sacrifice fly, and 1 RBI against the Yankees. The Rangers have been in Texas for 39 years. They've been a franchise for 50 years (dating back to when they were the Washington Senators), and for the 1st time in franchise history, they will be playing on the grandest stage of all: the Fall Classic.

Kinsler's line in the postseason so far is .342/.409/.658 for an OPS of 1.067 in 45 PAs. He has 3 HRs, 1 double, 1 triple, 2 SBs, 9 RBIs, and 6 runs scored.

Edit: Game 1 will be played on Wednesday against the Giants in San Francisco.

I'm happy for them and their fans. Not happy for me, but you can't win them all.

Nice post. I am not sure what the heck the Cubs are doing with Sam Fuld. No one is supposed to stay in AAA for more than a year or two. Either they make the bigs or are out of baseball.
