Uh...tap the brakes a bit there. Renteria is a solid player, but you need a bit better than a .287 and 11 HR/ season to be considered a FBHOFer.
Fact is that the real magic of the Giants this year is that if you go down the lineup there really aren't any perenneal All-Star/HOF-type players in the while list. Amazing. I can't really remember anything like it.
Congrats to them.

+1. Would like the Rangers to have put up a bit more fight, but I give credit to some pretty amazing pitching by San Fran.
