2010: The Year Of The Underdog
Last night, the Giants beat the Phillies 3-2, and are going to the World Series to face the Texas Rangers. Last night, Cody Ross (left) was named NLCS MVP of 2010. The night before, Josh Hamilton (right) was named ALCS MVP. Over the full year, Cody Ross went .269/14/65, but he stepped it up a notch, going .350/3/5 in the NLCS. Josh Hamilton was a bit different, he did great in the season too, going .359/32/100, leading the league in batting average; in the ALCS he went .350/4/7. The 2010 World Series will be a definite pitching World Series, as both of these underdogs have fantastic pitching. On Wednesday, the Giants and Rangers will go up head to head in San Francisco for the 2010 World Series. Not much has been happening for the Red Sox, except for their plans to upgrade Fenway Park, which has been happening for several years may be finishing. So far, they have put seats on the Green Monster, and added a huge TV, now they are adding HD TVs instead of the two little scoreboards on the right and left sides of the field. I hope the Red Sox can have a good offseason, and I hope this is a great World Series.
