This was the best possible outcome for the World Series

1) The Rangers had a soul-crushing defeat, with the Series being closed out on their field--their fans got to watch the Giants celebrate. Their bullpen was battered by a team which isn't known to be an offensive juggernaut, the invincible Cliff Lee was defeated twice, and their bats went silent. Sure, they'll make a showing of their AL Championship banner nest year, but that will mean as much to their fans as our many AL West Championship banners mean to us--nothing counts except for a Series win. The next step is to fix the Angel weaknesses and make it another few years before the Rangers sniff the playoffs again. It would help if the Yankees would offer crazy money to Cliff Lee.

2) The "who gives a crap?" matchup between the Giants and Rangers gave Fox Sports their lowest-rated World Series in years. Combine that with the fact the Series ran fewer than 6 games and it is a guarantee that Fox Sports lost money--tens of millions of dollars--broadcasting the Series. The low ratings meant that the games didn't even have value as a promotional tool for the upcoming Fox Television series like "Amputee Mud Wrestling" and yet another insult comedy about a dysfunctional family.

Obviously, I would have wanted to see the Angels in the Series, but given the fact that this was not to be, this is a real schadenfreude winner.
