Yankees and Phillies are out this year but the experts say that won't make it any less exciting in -- it may be more exciting.
Joining us now live from San Francisco fox sports Joe Buck.
Who broadcast his record thirteenth World Series tonight she's Joe you're so old.
Guy's gonna tell you step by feel it too clearly saddle look in the mirror and I start to -- before these games is more -- on down the drain then when I started back in ninety -- -- two that stands to reason.
I don't know its size not probably what most of the baseball world would've expected.
But I'm pretty fired up about -- San Francisco.
About -- differences -- in Texas series you know that the fans in these two games from these two teams must be off the shorts.
They're -- there are and I think that's part of a farm part of a -- news is Powell.
Excited fan bases in each stadium in each city you go there you can feel it the second you the second -- land.
And the pitching match that I don't think you have to be a huge baseball fan.
If you're just a sports fan you look at his pitching matchup we think this is some -- want -- watch and it's Cliff Lee who's been absolutely untouchable.
Was last year for Philly has been this year for Texas against Tim Lincecum.
Who is Zell one of the most dynamic.
Pitchers that's come along and along time I mean if if you don't like this then now this is the best we've got off for and I think it's going to be a heck of a series they're really -- In the long ball from Josh Hamilton.
-- would all that he has overcome and is still working to overcome is a great story to Asia.
Yet -- and and it's it's one of the many stories that I think.
It's really important for him and me to talk about it it's really important for the two of us.
Two to tell the country about these players and if we can do that and and tell these stories well that I I think will be aiding.
The excitement for this series that -- as you said you know people think yankees -- Red Sox Phillies.
The last couple of years the World Series these are new entries and it's up to us in the -- to try and tell their stories in the stories are great Hamilton's one Manning.
And you know I think the Rangers and others for that matter -- -- And then more and more learning you don't have to have a 2102 trillion dollar.
Budget to to win in Major League Baseball you just gotta have you gotta have good managers and and you gotta have a team that's ready to play.
-- -- you've got in texas' case you've got a 55 million dollar payroll in San Francisco's case.
You've got a bigger payroll but you've got it seemed it was remade during the course this season down the stretch.
They really tweak their roster they added really important pieces and for San Francisco.
We got a chance over the last week to get to -- -- better.
They are rag tag bunch but that doesn't mean that they're not confident and their loose and there -- fun.
They're enjoying it it's a great group to be around so -- there's a lot to like here.
And die if we don't tell those stories well -- -- And shame on us I'm wondering if cliff with anyone is ever gonna figure out how -- -- Cliff Lee in the playoffs Joe.
The watch a baseball for awhile as long as you but -- I've never seen anything quite like it.
Well when you've got Nolan Ryan saying Cliff Lee is the most confident pitcher I've ever seen on the mound that sand something that's.
I mean that it doesn't matter what I think I mean Nolan Ryan's while most confident stare you down blow it by -- pitchers in the history of -- game.
And when he saying that about his left hander I mean he makes it look effortless and he makes it look like he can put any pitch in any spot at any time.
And he he shut down a Yankee lineup he won two road games against Tampa Bay he's the big reason why they're here and they got him.
On the ninth of July so that's another part of their remake during the course of the season.
He's a great story and he's a free agent to be and somebody's gonna have to open up the vault.
To get him in their uniform next season some certain somebody will and Joe I look forward to it tonight won't miss that I know you do that that's -- the cardinals -- Tonight o'clock 7:30 eastern 630 and Oxford that's on the big Fox Network don't miss -- World Series man.
