Maybe we don't have the sexiest World Series matchup this year, with the Yankeesand Phillies both rolling over to the Rangersand Giants, respectively. But from a baseball perspective you can't deny the many storylines. You have the premier pitching matchup between Tim Lincecum and Cliff Lee, the great Josh Hamilton "comeback" story, young talent likeBuster Posey and Elvis Andrus, an unlikely hero in Cody Ross, and Bengie Molina being guaranteed a World Series ring regardless of the outcome.
Quite possibly the coolest story, however, is the emergence ofGiants closer Brian Wilson as a mainstream cult figure. Giants fans know all too well just what a great personality Wilson possesses. He may be the most entertaining player in baseball. And with the Giants taking their game to the main stage, Wilson is starting to become popular among even the most casual of baseball fans.
