Texas Rangers don't match up well against Detroit Tigers in the MLB Playoff in the regular season when Detroit won six of the nine games. However the story would be Rangers offense lead by Adrian Beltre who finished off the Tampa Bay Rays with his three homers in Game 4 of the ALDS.
Rangers pitching might have better rotation depth, but C.J. Wilson got beat up by the Tigers in regular-season.
Delmon Young is a big contributor in the ALDS will be a factor of this series as well. Detroit's closer Jose Valverde baost 49 perfect save opportunities that should more be added.
Tigers has been waiting for 27 years for a World Series title to arrive in Motown and by staying hungry might enable them to capture it.
