For most folks, it's just a regular Monday. For the Giants and Rangers (and all their fans), it's the beginning of a very long three days.
That's because both teams are awaiting the biggest series of their lives, as the 2010 World Series is set to begin Wednesday night.
Game 1 will be a showdown of aces, as Cliff Lee will likely pitch for the Rangers and Tim Lincecum will most likely be on the bump for the Giants.
Games 1 and 2 will be played in San Francisco, thanks to a rare NL victory in this year's All-Star Game. Games 3-5 will be played in Texas (Game 5 if necessary) and Games 6-7 will take place in San Francisco (if necessary).
