1. The Rangers have a superior lineup top-to-bottom. Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder are probably better hitters than any in the Rangers’ lineup, but Josh Hamilton and Michael Young are in the same category. And the Rangers are stronger from 1-to-9 in the batting order.

2. The Rangers have a better bullpen. The Rangers are finishing games with Alexi Ogando in the seventh, Mike Adams in the eighth and Joe Nathan in the ninth. That’s incredible.

3. The Rangers have more team speed and therefore are stronger defensively than the Tigers. Austin Jackson is the only real speed the Tigers have. The Rangers feature several players who can steal a base if necessary, and that speed helps them a great deal in the field.
