Boston won Game 1 of the World Series last night 8-4 in an exciting game, but does anyone outside Boston or Los Angeles care?
It’s a series between two of the most legendary teams in Major League Baseball but as a Rangers fan I could give a damn of who wins. But if I look at former Texas Rangers players who are now with other teams I could learn which team to root for.
If Boston wins, Ian Kinsler and Mitch Moreland would get World Series rings. Kinsler who was traded to Detroit in the disastrous Prince Fielder trade is batting a mere .240 with 14 homers and 48 RBI’s over 128 games. Mitch is enjoying his 2nd year with the Red Sox batting .245 with 15 homers and 68 RBI’s.
If Dodgers win, well there aren’t any former Rangers to cheer on.
Am I mad if Boston wins? Nah, if the Astros had found their way to the World Series again, I would do everything in my power to root for the Dodgers but I always want players who leave to do better in their new environments.
Except Houston, you leave to go play for the Astros, you are dead to me.
I can hear some of you say, “C’mon Sean, you hold grudges against Houston for fights years ago.”
Why yes, I do. Astros are little brother and sometimes you have put little brother in their place. For years the Astros were one of the worst teams in MLB and they go out and win a World Series. Now every one of their fans wants to talk smack.
Why do Yankees fans talk less smack then Astros fans? Because they’ve won 20+ World Series. It’s old hat for them.
Astros fans want people to think they are the second coming of the Yankees.
