Ryan Expects Rangers To Win World Series In Six Games

October 18th 2011 00:52
Perhaps if he were still pitching Nolan Ryan would predict his team would win the World Series in a sweep.

As it is, Texas Rangers executive Nolan Ryan said his team, bridesmaids last year, will take home MLB's biggest prize this time.

"I think we'll get it done in six," Ryan told ESPN Radio in Dallas. "I'm really thrilled that the guys played the way they did this year. To get back to the World Series back to back is a big challenge. So I'm thrilled with what they've done."

Ryan admitted he won't be so "thrilled" if the Rangers come up short again, as they did in falling to the San Francisco Giants in the 2010 Fall Classic.

"I always say that if your last game ends in a loss, there's a certain amount of disappointment," Ryan said. "That means you didn't get it done. I can tell you this, from our team, our players, our coaching staff, Ron (Washington), and the front office staff that if that were to happen we would be disappointed that we weren't world champions. After what we experienced last year, they came back very determined to be world champions."

Getting to the World Series three times straight would be a very difficult task, even for this talented group.

In the words of another favorite down south, Larry the Cable Guy, the Rangers are going to want to 'Git er done' this time when the World Series starts Wednesday night.

I agree with him, as my prediction before the postseason began was that the Rangers would beat the Cardinals in six games.
