Texas vs. New York

Dont give up on the Rangers......I actually like how the series against the Rays went having to pitch Lee in Game 5

Now Lee doesn't have to pitch in Arlington until Game 7, if there is a Game 7. He has not had the best record in Arlington

Wilson vs. Sabathia - Hopefully will be a good matchup, Yankees have had issues with left handed pitchers, but they will need a good outing from him. If the bullpen gets a lot of play in the first game that will not be a good thing at all.

Lewis vs. Pettitte - Should be a better matchup for the Rangers. both have about the same ERA. Just need Texas to give Lewis run support to give him confidence. That is one thing that hasnt really happened this season is a lot of run support when Lewis pitches. He had a great outing against TB, but he didn't go deep into the game. He has shown to be better in Arlington then on the road

Lee vs. Hughes - If Lee pitches like he did against TB, Lee all day long.

Hunter vs. Burnett - Put your money on the over and whoever can get to their closer first wins

If the Rangers can take 1 out of the first 2, I think they have a serious chance to take the series with Lee pitching game 3.

If they can make it to game 7, I see the Rangers winning.....If I were to put money on it, Yanks in 6.

I wanna say Texas has no shot, as I think they were 0-3 against the Yankees in three series in the late 90s, and they could be facing the same mental block the Twins had against New York. But this is baseball, and the Yankees ARE a year older. And Texas has home field, despite six fewer wins.

I think Texas' pitching will prove to be the difference, seeing as how they are vastly superior IMO.

Rangers in 5.

I think the Yankees will win because i love the Yankees, and anything from Texas [other than the chicks] sucks ass.

Cliff Lee is just obscene. Yankees are going to do everything they can to make sure they don't have to face him in another post season.
