Giants Or Phillies: Who Would You Rather See In The World Series?

Now that Texas has punched their ticket to the World Series, we can start looking ahead.


San Francisco leads Philadelphia 3-2 in the NLCS with Game 6 coming tonight in Philadelphia when Oswalt takes on Sanchez. The Phillies have a more talented team and it's not really close. Roy Halladay, Roy Oswalt and Cole Hamels is comparable if not better than Tim Lincecum, Jonathan Sanchez and Matt Cain as a 1-2-3 punch. Chase Utley, Ryan Howard, Jayson Werth and Jimmy Rollins are easily better than the Giants band of bandits out there featuring Aubrey Huff, Andres Torres, Juan Uribe and Buster Posey - though Posey is legitimately awesome.


The Giants are likely the weaker opponent for the Rangers but maybe it'd be fun for Dallas fans to stick it to a Philadelphia team again.
