The 2010 World Series has not started the way most Texas Rangers fans had hoped, but I believe that the 2010 Texas Rangers will be remember for years to come. Why? First of all, MLB is not the mainstream professional sport in Texas as it is in many other parts of the country. However, as the Texas Rangers entered the 2010 MLB playoffs - there were no seats to be found during their home-games as they walked with ease to win the 2010 American League Pennant.
Then like everyone else, I believed the Texas Rangers would win against the San Francisco Giant easily after dominating the New York Yankees for the American League championship. Everyone now knows that the San Francisco Giants have a great baseball team and there is no doubt in my mind that they (the Giants) are not only a better team than the Yankees, but so far they are also a better team than the Texas Rangers.
The odds of the Texas Rangers coming back from a 3-1 deficit in the 2010 World Series are large indeed. However, even if the team is not successful in their next two games against the Giants - hundreds of thousands of Texans now have a new sport to follow and that fact will keep the 2010 Texas Rangers in the minds of fans for many years to come. Major League Baseball (MLB) has a huge image problem and frankly the game itself can be very boring to watch at times. However, fan support for MLB has now officially come to Texas and that fact will help the Rangers continue to grow their team in the years to come.
